In winter I am a ski instructor in the Alps...

...but in summer I play the piano on a zeppelin.
During its first year in service, the airship [Hindenburg] had a special aluminium Blüthner grand piano placed on board in the music salon. It was the first piano ever (played) in flight and helped host the first radio broadcast "air concert." The piano was removed after the first year to save weight.
