I’m here to lift the lid on what we are actually paid, the salary if you will. I see too often blogs and people moaning about it. ‘oh its shit pay’ and ‘the pay isn’t even worth looking at’ and they usually quickly follow it up with ‘you do get a free lift pass and stuff so it’s not too bad’ – NOONE EVER TALKS NUMBERS!
What is it with people…why is everyone so afraid to talk about wages and salaries in society. ESPECIALLY whilst being a chalet couple or host…everyone already knows you are not there for the money! These ski companies have to make as much money as they can in a very short time frame…your lifestyle and well-being means as much to them as their values and traditions do to you and therefore they will pay you the absolute minimum! (it actually works out far far less than that but hey, I’m not a human rights lawyer!).
We are here to change that and break everything down for you. But we’ll let you into a little secret first.
…That season long lift pass is NOT free…you still pay for it!
