What makes Kirkwood different? It's not Tahoe! It has a down to earth vibe that our employees describe as heaven on earth!

As a part of the Vail Resorts Culinary Team, you will have the chance to gain real-world experience within our kitchens & restaurants. These positions allow you to hone your skills with regional talent and professionals in our famous restaurants. If you’re interested in moving mountains in your career, come work with us and you’ll instantly feel at home.

This year, more than any before, people want to be outside, they want to escape, they want to feel the exhilaration and freedom our sport offers. Our vision for the upcoming winter season is to deliver that Experience of a Lifetime, and with safety as our top priority, aspects of both the employee and guest experience this season will be adjusted accordingly.
