Surprised to see nothing on here yet, fans of the mountains...

Could Brexit spell the end of the ski seasonaire job?

Was there a time in the past where it worked a different way?

I can't see the French accepting seasonal workers easily if we're not in the club. But a ~million Brits go skiing each season so the pounds must be worth something to the locals...

Thoughts? Musings? Too early to say? To upset to continue??

NO CHANGE, well at least not for the foreseeable future. Come the final exit, additional paperwork will probably be required, Visa's etc. What no one seems to remember is that Britain's worked abroad before we entered the EEC(not EU), and 'foreigners worked in Britain'. There is no way any of the Alpine countries would forsake the British ski market, with the exception of the Swiss of course who have so much money(mostly illegal) that they don't need us.

Clearly no change today, but it has to play on the minds of everyone involved in this industry and their 2 to 5 year plans.

Some mention of it on the BBC here:
http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36606847
"What happens after Britain exits the EU depends on the type of deal the UK strikes with the EU. It is possible it could become more difficult for new expats to find work.
They could fall foul of the rule which exists in 15 EU member states, which says that you can only be hired if no other suitable candidate has been found within the EU area."

It was the last part of this statement that caused my concern.

Clearly it's possible if the local country wants it. But I can't remember how it used to work in the days before EU cross country rules.
