There’s no doubt that last season’s Ski.com Epic Dream Job was an amazing opportunity for budding content creators. Winner Jackson Lebsack traveled around the globe, checking off resorts on his Epic Pass in Vermont, Europe, Japan, Canada, and throughout the American West.
Rather than having one person globetrot to key locations while hoping for good conditions, the travel website is sending different people to six incredible locations for one week-long residencies. Locations include Aspen Snowmass, Colo., Jackson Hole, Wyo., Big Sky, Mont., Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta, Chamonix, France, and Niseko, Japan.
Twelve applicants will be selected—two per destination—and they will spend one thrilling week exploring and documenting everything that makes each location’s skiing, nightlife, dining, hotel, and off-hill experiences so renown.

“Last fall, for Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job, we received nearly 1,200 video entries and a very passionate community formed online in support of the applicants,” says Dan Sherman, Ski.com’s Chief Marketing Officer, in a press release.
“This year, instead of hiring one person, we are now looking for candidates to fill 12 open positions who will visit six incredible destinations around the world while receiving products and services from an all-star group of partners,” says Sherman.
SKI Magazine is acting as an official partner this year, meaning a healthy amount of the twelve winners’ on- and off-hill exploits will be featured on SKImag.com and our Instagram channel. In other words, this could be your chance to become ski-world famous.
