Describing “I am looking for an outgoing person who loves to ski and travel. I need help with my skis before starting at the top of the mountain,” Matilda commented,when asked what she was looking for in her new on-mountain assistant, adding,

“This is a small but important part in my preparation for a race. Can anyone do the job? My last assistant was a disaster.”

“For anyone who can ski, this is truly the opportunity of a lifetime – it’s a five second job and all the winner has to do is to help Matilda hold her skis before the start,” said a spokesperson for the competition’s organisers.

The winner also gets the opportunity to ski and discover Alaska with Matilda, one of the best freeskiers in the world during a week that includes heli skiing.
