Room and Board

Sockeye Cycle Shop

We have company housing in Skagway available for our employees at inexpensive, subsidized rates. The rooms are located above our Skagway bike shop. There is a communal kitchen and living area for residents. A room or house to rent in Skagway or Haines can sometimes be found before the season starts. Camping in a tent or the back of your truck is an option in both communities either at a campground or free range.

Employee Perks

We offer a thorough 40 hour paid training session at the beginning of each season.  We offer competitive pay (that includes some tips), subsidized housing, reliable work, and some staff trips to bike races and music festivals in the area.  We also offer a performance based, end of season bonus.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Skagway and Haines are towards the top of the Alaska Marine Highway system, and also connect to the Alaska/Canada Hwy (Alcan).  Most people end up flying to Juneau, and then taking a ferry up to Skagway.  It is also possible to take the AMHS ferry all the way up from Bellingham, WA, a four-day trip.  Some folks do choose to drive up, and should expect 3-4 days through Canada from the US border.  Everything is accessible by walking or biking when in town, though there are lots of great nearby destinations that can be accessed if you do bring a vehicle.Rainforest Tour

For Fun

Recreational opportunities abound!  You can walk out of our shop/house door and be at a number of trails in minutes.  Cycling, running, climbing, skiing, boarding, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and more are easily available nearby.  We spot eagles, bears, mountain goats, waterfalls, and glaciers on tour.  Haines and Skagway are great communities for outdoor oriented individuals and draws a fun mix of familiar faces and new workers up for the summers.
