If You Can’t Commit to a Full Season

Job Seekers Guide

Employers need staff to cover their entire season, so many will hire a combination of full season staff, early season staff and late season staff. In our experience, preference is given to those who can work the entire season – but there are plenty of short season opportunities out there as well.

All Visas Are Not Created Equal

For Employers

Seasonal Employers have long been involved with the Work and Travel Program – this “Exchange Visitor Program promotes mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by educational and cultural exchanges.”

Ski Life – Working at a Ski Resort

Job Seekers Guide

Seeking that 100+ day season? Short of not working at all, to maximize your on-snow days, working at a ski resort is the gig for you. Some resorts also have relationships with nearby ski areas to offer reciprocal lift ticket benefits to their employees, allowing opportunities to visit multiple resorts over the season.
