Here are some specific positions we are looking to fill:

Snow sports instruction is an opportunity to work outdoors and teach others to enjoy the sport you love. Benefits include training in guest service skills, public speaking & personal riding/ skiing abilities. We also work on skill-building towards PSIA-AASI Certifications. Instructors must have an outgoing, fun, and warm personality and willingness to work with students of all abilities, ages 3 to 99.  Instructors are asked to assist with other tasks around the mountain, including program set up, event coordination and judging, learning area set up, snow shoveling, and terrain park maintenance.  Own equipment is preferred, but a season-long lease of rental equipment is possible.  Advanced skiing/riding skills are not required – we hire the smile and train the feet. Hours in this department are dependent on retail sales. As a full-time employee, you are expected to be here every day of operation and will sign off on whether you would rather gain hours through keep busy projects or have the opportunity to go ski or ride.  Hours range from 2 to 6, more during holidays and weekends. 

As a part-time employee, you are expected to be here on the days you are scheduled and will receive hours only after full-time employees have been served. You may be asked to perform tasks outside of your specific job description.  We do offer junior instructing opportunities for individuals 14, 15, and 16 years of age.  

The Ticket Queen/King handles ticket sales, guest relations, information, and money handling in a fast-paced environment, including radio communication, and miscellaneous clerical duties.  You may be asked to perform tasks outside of your specific job description.
