The Employee Experience

Deer Valley Resort provides staff members with a healthy, fun and positive work experience in a setting that encourages camaraderie and a feeling of being “part of the family.”

We are committed to our philosophy of the “Three Circle Model,” which promotes taking care of the guest, taking care of the company, and taking care of each other. Our commitment to this philosophy keeps our staff returning year after year.

Our staff, known for being welcoming, knowledgeable, attentive and approachable, pride themselves on the exceptional customer service they provide. The Deer Valley three-circle business model teaches employees to find the balance between taking care of the guest, the company and each other. They are encouraged to emulate a professional and friendly attitude at all times.


The Summer Work and Travel Program allows students to spend up to four months working for Deer Valley Resort during their summer vacation. Deer Valley is looking for enthusiastic candidates who have a passion for working at a world-class ski resort. First-year Exchange Visitors must go through either CCUSA, Greenheart Exchange or CIEE sponsor agencies to be considered for employment at Deer Valley Resort. Returning Exchange Visitors may apply independently but are still required to go through an approved visa sponsor. Visit the visa sponsor's website for more information on how you can interview with Deer Valley Resort.

  • CIEE
  • Greenheart Exchange


Deer Valley offers Exchange Visitors opportunities to work as Interns or Trainees in our Culinary and Baking Program, Hospitality Management Program, and our Restaurant Management Program. Interested applicants must go through our sponsor agencies, Janus International, TransUSA Careers or CIEE. This program differs from the Summer Work and Travel Program in that the applicants can train in the United States on a six- or 12-month visa. Internship dates range from the beginning of December through the second week in April.


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.
Spend a winter working with us at Deer Valley Resort and find a summer resort to finish your adventure!
