    "Ooooh, now where'd I put me socks? ah! thats better..."

    Right, I've been thinking a lot recently about quitting my job and doing something fun for a while... This is potentially a dumb thing to do as I have what most would consider to be a 'sweet job' at a games company, but it's really not making me happy, at all...

    I love Snowboarding, love the mountains, and it seems like this year might be the right one to get off my arse and go and do it...

    So I need some advice... Have any of you lot done season work? It looks like a lot of fun, but I don't know where to start, any companies that are known for being better than others? locations? any bad stories?

    In an ideal world i'd like to do a job that involves a lot of driving, or bar work... My french is basic, but I can just about get by. chalet work i.e. cooking, is off the cards.

    /is rubbish in the kitchen

    Any start points really appreciated!

    You'd have to wait until next summer at least, maybe even the summer after that as I know Camp America recruit in September for the following summer.

    I'd check out some Snowboarding/Skiiiong teaching type places, My gf did "le gap", ski instructing in Canada for a year, could be worth a go. If you do fancy tattie picking but a bit more glam, you could go and pick figs on an Israeli Kibbutz or something. Nicer weather.
