Dear Ex-Pinkies,

November at KISC is traditionally the quietest month of the year for guests but that does not mean things slow down much! At the moment we are eating in the Main Hall as Jenneke our House Manager and the STS are busy anti-waxing the floor in the Dinning Hall and Vanya and more STS deep clean the kitchen and store rooms. The Irish Room renovation is in full swing and outside there is still lots of work to do to get the grounds ready for the winter.

The snow has yet to arrive even high up in the mountains but many of our Staff are anxiously awaiting the chance to get their skis and snowboards out and start the winter fun.  

Helpers needed!

This Winter we will need some helpers to give a hand during our busiest weeks. If you want to experience life back on Staff for a short period of time and take the opportunity to learn to ski or experience the Alps in Winter then this is your chance. We need help during the following weeks:

  • Training Week – 10th-18th December in Chalet Services
  • Winter Activity training – 20th-24th December in Chalet Services
  • Winter Week 1 – 27th Dec-2nd Jan in Chalet Services.
  • Winter Week 8 – 11th-18th Feb Chalet Services, Winter Activity and Ski Guides. (Note 11th Feb is a training/recap day, all helpers need to be here for this)

All helpers will receive a day at KISC for free in return for each day of work.

If you want to be a helper please email Jon (UK) with details of when you would like to work and details of your experience (seasons worked at KISC).



It is time to start planning for next summer! Are you ready to come back to KISC and take on one of the roles within the Long Term Staff? Are you looking for a new challenge, the chance to take on responsibility and work in a rewarding and fun environment? We have also just put the five month positions for Summer 2012 online. These positions are:

  • Shop Manager

  • Campsite Assistant
  • Eco Adventure Assistant
