You will be working in a winter environment; we are in the business of snow which means our guests come for the snow and our staff must be able to do the same. Please consider your means of transportation before applying; reliable transportation in all weather conditions is a must. Our season usually begins early December, but this is entirely dependent on when we get enough snow to open. The season usually lasts through mid of March. Most of the ski area jobs require employees to be available to work on weekends in January and February and all winter holidays including, but not limited to, Christmas Eve, Winter Break, New Year’s Eve Day & Night, New Year’s Day, President’s Day Break, etc. Operations begin as early as 7:45am and continue into the evening as late as 10:00pm. We are a seasonal business, please keep this in mind when you apply in respect to your planned vacations/time off as everyone is responsible for finding their own coverage. Positions are for ages 16+ unless otherwise noted.
