Are you looking for a fun way to spend the winter? What could be more fun than a Colorado ski resort job? You don't have to be a great skier to work at a ski resort, and many of the jobs allow you to stay inside, and warm, all day. The best advice I can give you, if this is what you want, is to start early. Don't wait until the snow is falling to start filling out applications. Some resorts hold job fairs or hiring days where you can fill out an application, get an interview and possibly a job all at one time.
Arapahoe Basin is one of the Colorado ski resorts you might consider working at. It is an independently owned resort and they want all their employees to fit into their family atmosphere. They also want employees with exceptional guest service skills. Currently at the Basin they are looking for a parking lot attendant, cooks, a lift operator, a shuttle driver and a dishwasher.
The Aspen Skiing Company operates four ski resorts, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, Snowmass and Aspen Mountain. They hire a lot of employees each year to work at these different Colorado ski resorts. Their hiring is broken down into departments. These different departments include lift attendants, snowcats, tickets, snowmaking, guest service, retail and rental shop workers and ski school employees. One way of getting a job with this company is to attend one of their job fairs. Managers are on hand to give interviews on the spot. The dates for these job fairs are September 9th, October 7th, November 4th and November 18th.

Crested Butte ski resort is located in southwestern Colorado and brags about being unpretentious and authentic. They are currently looking for employees in culinary services, daycare, Elevation Hotel and Spa, The Grand Lodge, The Lodge at Mountaineer Square, The Plaza Hotel and the Ski and Ride School.
Not all ski resort jobs are seasonal. Eldora Mountain Resort is currently looking for fulltime year round employees. They need a snowmaking manager, a lift electrician, a human resources generalist and a retail manager.
The employee benefits are what many seasonal ski resort employees are looking for. One of the best benefits are the lift passes. Loveland Ski Area offers a free season pass to their slopes as well as many other slopes in the area. You will also get discounts in the restaurants and cafeterias as well as the sport shop and rental shop. Interviews at Loveland start in mid September.
Silverton Ski Resort is looking for passionate employees who work hard and play hard. They have an internship program that might be of interest to students. They are not paid but a college credit is available. They are looking for paid employees in the areas of lift maintenance, retail sales, ski patrol and ski guides. Some of their perks include a ski pass, discounted heli skiing and bar discounts.
At Powderhorn Grand Mesa they are currently looking for brush cutters. If you were looking for something else then you should be at the hiring fair November 13. It will be at the Powderhorn Base Lodge and they are looking for terrain park workers, lift attendants and operators, dishwashers, housekeepers, lodging desk clerks, cashiers and many other service related positions.
These are just a few of the many companies offering Colorado ski resort jobs. Since the majority of jobs in the ski industry involve some type of customer service, or you are at least seen by the public, a clean cut attire is appropriate for these job fairs and interviews. I would gladly get a haircut in order to spend the winter working at a popular ski resort. Maybe I'll see you there.
