Around 2,000 Britons who live and work at ski resorts could be forced to return home after the government revoked an agreement allowing them to work in the EU after December 31.

To achieve the top Level 4 qualification the instructors will have to beat the clock in a giant slalom race on the slopes above the resort of Alpe d'Huez on December 13.

It sees a World Cup racer set off first and record a time which the instructors must get within 24 per cent of.

They will get two runs at it, and if their time is not fast enough, then they will be forced to leave their careers after December 31.

One of those affected is Natasha Edwards, 31, who has spent seven years in the Alps training to become a professional ski instructor.

She told the Times: 'It's very disappointing. I've been working for so many years towards something, and suddenly I've been told that actually this qualification might not be recognised at all. That's like doing a degree or two and just being told: 'That doesn't count for anything now. You can't use it.' It's basically a big waste of my twenties.'
