Stratton Mountain Resort

The Stratton Way is Work & Play!


Stratton's ski area covers 624 acres and includes 94 ski trails. One of the most powerful snow making systems in Southern Vermont, Stratton has snow guns on 93% of the mountain to ensure top snow conditions throughout the season.


• Elevation at the summit: 1,181 meters / 3,875 feet
• Vertical drop: 611 meters / 2,003 feet
• Number of trails: 94
• Average annual snowfall: 460 cm / 180 inches

Stratton is a great beginner mountain but has varied terrain for more advanced riders. There are some great woods to explore, and the parks keep getting better and better. Stratton is located pretty close to many other mountains (many of them free or discounted for employees!)  though so it’s easy to check out what other mountains have to offer.

If you’re really into Parks, Stratton is about 40 minutes from Carinthia at Mount Snow, which is known for some pretty amazing features. Other local mountains include Magic (steep, small, never crowded, and has that old-school feel), Bromley, Okemo, and Killington/Pico.

Working for Stratton Mountain Ski Resort

We really care about the kind of people we’re hiring. We look for people who we think will mesh well with the culture we promote – people who are excited and passionate about life! We look for people who are positive, motivated, and know how to have fun while working hard!

The best thing about working at a ski resort is that your days off fall on week days, when the mountain’s pretty much just employees and locals. It’s awesome and not uncommon to find yourself on a trail all by yourself or just with the friends you’re riding with.
