Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim
Summer Jobs at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon
The North Rim is unlike any other place you have visited. A dense Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir, Spruce, and Aspen forest mantles the Kaibab plateau. This is an enormous geologic feature roughly 30 by 50 miles, averaging 7,500 - 9,200 feet and bounded on all sides by incredible desert vistas, the Painted Desert, mountain vistas, and the Grand Canyon. Driving over the plateau, you pass through beautiful meadows and pristine mountain scenery and arrive at the historic North Rim Lodge. The Lodge is nestled at 8,100 feet on the canyon edge on the North side of the canyon. The view is superb with the canyon at your feet and vistas to the San Francisco peaks 70 miles to the south. Whether you are sitting on the Lodge verandas or are visiting one of the many canyon viewpoints, the Grand Canyon is breathtaking.

Room and Board
All employees reside in either dormitories or in the employee RV park. Rooms are shared and each room has a private bath. Meals are served in the employee dining room for dormitory residents. Linens and bedding is available. $12.00 per day is deducted from your paycheck for room and board. Employees with RVs will set up in the employee RV park. RV site rent is $6.00 per day for full hook-ups (does not include meals). Laundry facilities are free for all employees. Because of the remote location, no other housing arrangements are available. The General Store has a limited selection of groceries. Children and pets are not allowed (exception – pets are allowed in the RV park provided they are leashed and do not create a disturbance). Employee shuttles run from the employee housing area to and from the Lodge working areas.
Employee discounts are offered in the Gift Shop, General Store, Dining Room, and Deli.
Seasonal employees are not entitled to insurance, holidays, paid vacation or paid sick days.
Getting Here and Getting Around
The only way to get to the North Rim is by car. Over 150 miles to the nearest shopping areas and over 250 miles to Las Vegas, the North Rim is by any standards truly “splendid isolation”. Driving access is via either North/South Interstate 15 between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City or East/West Interstate 40 between Albuquerque and Las Angeles. Airline and bus connections can be made to Las Vegas and St George, Utah. Employees can arrange pick-up in St George.
Hiking, photography, mountain biking, and many off-road 4 wheel drive trails await you. A Grand Canyon sunrise and sunset, with changing light and shadow in the canyon, and enhanced by frequent summer thunderstorms make memorable photos. A hike into the Canyon on the Bright Angel trail is considered one of the most challenging and beautiful in America. For the truly adventurous, hike the full 22 miles through Phantom Ranch, over the Colorado River and on to the South Rim.
The company will provide vans for employee shopping trips and recreation trips on a routine basis at no cost to the employee.
