Looking for a career change? Why not get a job that comes with a powder clause. We spoke to the people who hold some of the most desirable jobs in skiing—filmmakers, product designers, marketing managers—about how to get their job. Plus, what companies are actually hiring. By Anna Baldwin
Everyone loves to talk about dream jobs, but in skiing, the real best job is often avoiding one. But if you really must be employed, combining skiing with work leads to one enviable business endeavor. We caught up with David ‘Gomez’ Johnson, owner/lead guide for Casa Tours in Chile and Argentina, about how he found himself the ultimate ski bum job: taking people on the most memorable ski runs of their lives, skiing powder all summer in South America, and giving clients a taste of the ski bum dream.
