Arrowhead Mountain Lodge is a ‘boutique resort” with a restaurant, hotel, and outdoor adventure company located in the southwest mountains of Colorado, serving High Alpine cuisine in Cimarron, CO. We are open every day, year-round, and offer a welcoming team environment, opportunity for growth and the chance to contribute a dish to the menu. Pay is competitive.

Work Environment

• While performing the core functions of a Line Cook, the employee is usually indoors, in a controlled environment, and experiences moderate noise levels in the working environment.

• There will be times when the Line Cook is asked and required to perform duties beyond the typical requirements of a Line Cook, such as Cross-training in other departments, maintenance in and around the building, and snow removal.

Employee Housing

•  Full-time Line Cooks will have their own room in a house with four bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, about a mile from the place of work.

  • Housing will be included in your pay package, and no additional money from your hourly wage will be deducted.

• Employee housing is for employees only

• Employees must ride a snowmobile or a vehicle with tracks to and from home and work during the winter months (approx. December – April).

o If an employee does not have a snowmobile or other means of winter transportation, like a side-by-side with tracks, Arrowhead Mountain Lodge will provide the employee with a “company” snowmobile.

o It is the employee’s responsibility to properly maintain the company snowmobile with gas, and oil, and report any issues with the vehicle to their direct supervisor as soon as possible.

Before you apply, here is essential info to know about us

We are…

• family-owned and operated. Jess Amie is the operating owner, and her husband, Patrick Amie, is an Army Veteran.

• committed to serving our military and military veterans. We do so through the multiple veteran events we hold every year. We also like hiring them too.

• in a remote area with a small community of residents that range from 80 to 300+ people, depending on the season. Summer is our busiest season, but winter traffic is increasing every year. Mud Season or spring is an excellent time to go on vacation.

• at a high elevation of 9500 feet (This is not a good fit if you have respiratory or heart issues)

• on dirt roads. The main road to the lodge is dirt and maintained all year. The roads in the neighborhood are not plowed in the winter but groomed for tracked vehicles like snowmobiles and side-by-sides, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

• a drive-in and ride-out Powersports resort that averages 300 inches of snow a year.

• more than a job, we are a lifestyle. As the motto goes, “work hard, play hard.”

• most likely, different than any restaurant you have ever worked at. We all chip in and help where help is needed.

• expanding our operations by adding a formal event and wedding program, a property management program, additional lodging, and a distillery.
