Win the chance to become a Ski Club blogger at the 2012 Youth Winter Olympics in Innsbruck

Friday 25th November 2011

The Ski Club of Great Britain has a great competition open until the 20th of December for anyone aged 16-24 who fancies themselves as a sports journo or ski fanatic. Simply send them a blog sample of up to 200 words on the topic of "a recent sporting event you have been involved with or tell us about your best skiing or snowboarding experience", and you could be heading to Innsbruck in January to blog about the Youth Winter Olympic games, complete with a VIP press pass, flights and half board accommodation! This is a great prize for anyone interested in winter sports, skiing, or a career in sports journalism. 

Ski and snowboarding jobs are top of many travellers lists at the moment, with resorts in Europe opening for business, and recruiters looking for staff. You could also use the ski season to get qualified as a ski or snowboard instructor, using one of the brilliant organisations in our Winter Ski Jobs section, or our Sports and Ski page. Don't forget there are loads of other opportunities for work in ski resorts in Europe and Canada this winter which don't involve you being a ski expert - hospitality work, chalet staff and bar jobs to name just a few. 

To submit your blog for the Ski Club of Great Britain competition, just send an email titled ‘YOG Blog’ to yog@skiclub.co.uk stating your name, age and contact number. To read the terms and conditions visit the Ski Club of Great Britain website.
