What can you expect:

This job might be right for you if you think you would enjoy:
You will be the smiling face at the lift stations, there to support our guests on their way to an amazing run.
Assessing guest needs and chair lift requirements in a safe and efficient manner.
Being a lean, mean, snow removing machine.
Being welcoming and sharing your knowledge about our awesome resort with our guests.
The great outdoors presents a variety of weather conditions. Be prepared for anything!
And you have:
Previous lift operation and/or manual labour experience is an asset.
You love interacting with people and have a positive, engaging and friendly attitude.
It would be a great asset if you’re a competent skier or snowboarder, but this isn’t required to be a Lift Operator.
If you’re a competent skier or snowboard, or excited to learn, you should possess your own ski or snowboarding equipment or be willing to buy it on arrival.
You’re able to execute and adhere to tasks with respect to company policies and procedures.
