*Sighs* Firstly, Austria is the northern hemisphere. Second, that sort of situation doesn't really exist. You have to fly there and get a job. Search the forums and info pages on NZ and you will find lots of helpful stuff (far more helpful than me right now!)
Anything worth doing is worth getting hurt for

Being fair, pokersmidge may have meant to type Australia rather than Austria.

There are no jobs along the lines that you are after - you can either try and get a job in advance (difficult unless you have already worked in the resort I believe) or get to the resort of your choice as early as you can (June) and be prepared to apply to dozens of bars/shops etc

Yes, I'm guessing he meant Australia (only coz I remember seeing t-shirts in Austria that said "NO KANGAROOS HERE" - apparently lots of tourists going to Austria think they will see kangaroos).

Resorts in Aus usually open on Queen's Birthday weekend, which is around 10th June. You would need to have a visa to work in Australia (or NZ I guess - I don't know about the NZ rules), and also be aware that Australia doesn't really do the chalet hosting thing: we look after ourselves in a ski lodge in general. So those jobs are pretty much ruled out.
