Australia and New Zealand Working Holiday Visa

Spend a year working and traveling in the United States on the 12-month Working Holiday J-1 visa through CCUSA's Summer Work and Travel program. This is a one-time only visa, and is offered by the U.S. Government for a limited period. If you are eligible, now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity. You can only work on this visa while you are a full-time student or recent graduate, so don't miss your chance!

H-2B Visa

Deer Valley Resort will not be participating in the H-2B visa program for the 2018 - 2019 ski season. We will continue to evaluate the status of the program for future seasons.
