Pros and Cons of doing a ski season

Now that my parents have returned I’m now getting back to the ski season routine of skiing, drinking and sleeping. We’re five weeks into the season and I’ve been enjoying the benefits but also learn’t that there are a few negatives to working a season. In true online blogging style here are a lists of the pros and cons.


  1. Lots of skiing
  2. Continuation of uni life
  3. No bills
  4. Only thing to worry about is if there’s any food in the chalet
  5. Living on a nice mountain
  6. Great night life
  7. Meeting new people
  8. Surrounded by snow all the time
  9. Seeing the Matterhorn everyday
  10. Can get away with wearing jeans and a hoody on nights out


  1. Getting chalet hands complete with burns and ruined fingers from chemicalsĀ 
  2. Constantly tired
  3. Lack of personal hygiene
  4. Always having dirty clothes
  5. Only having half of your wardrobe with you
  6. Loads of early mornings
  7. Dealing with horrible guests
  8. It ruins your liver
  9. Pay is rubbish
  10. Getting loads of bruises

Another con of doing a ski season is it’s really hard to keep a weekly blog.

Thoughts from this week:

  • I haven’t been skiing once this week
  • Zermatt is currently at it’s coldest, my wine froze and smashed on the balcony
  • Bought a new hat week
  • Had my first minesweeping experience
  • It doesn’t feel like 2013
