Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Imagine spending your winter at a ski resort without spending a dime. This is the premise of Giordano and Thomas's book. The authors, both veteran ski writers, have worked in the ski industry for more than 20 years. Jobs such as ski instructor, ski patroller, lift operator, and ski technician are among the many openings at ski resorts, as well as bartender, hotel worker, and retail salesperson. The authors review all types of jobs using anecdotes, job outlook, and work descriptions; they include tips on getting hired and note those jobs that allow more ski time. They then provide a directory of the major ski areas across the country. Although the layout is confusing and finding a specific center is tricky, the information is comprehensive. According to the authors, you will never get rich, and finding living space is difficult, but you can have a winter of fun. Recommended for larger job search collections.-Joshua Cohen, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
