Work The Ski Season

Payment (NZD): $15.75
Location: Ohakune
Region: Taupo & Central Plateau
Experience: Experience Necessary

We are looking for a couple to help run our Backpackers in Ohakune for the upcoming ski season.

You will be required to cover the reception duties from midday Friday to midday Monday in exchange for both of your accommodation. This can be done by one person if you want.  There will be additional paid reception work for the rest of the week of at least $250, mostly in the evenings.

You will need to work through to October. The start date for paid work will be the 1st of July but you can arrive before that and work 2 hours per day for your accommodation.

You will get your own room, sharing a house with other seasonal workers.

Facilities available to you are a spa, washing machine and unlimited Internet.


We can get you an early bird price on your season pass if you do not have one all ready.

Ohakune services the Turoa Ski Field on Mt Ruapehu and is a lively town during the winter.


You must be presentable with both of you speaking fluent English and be computer literate. A car is essential if you want to explore what the Central Plateaux has to offer and get up the mountain during the ski season.


You must reply with any experience you have had, your ages and when you can start. A contact telephone number would be great.

There will also be a 2 week trial period.


Looking forward to hearing from you.
