The Steamboat Lake Outpost is tucked away in the mountains of Colorado about 40 minutes north of the town of Steamboat Springs. We are a unique business that provides lodging, a restaurant, a general store, the only gas pump for miles, and guided outdoor adventures, including including sleigh rides, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling in the winter months, and horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, and UTVs in the summer months. Every day, we get to rub shoulders with our fantastic community of locals, as well as the myriad of outdoor enthusiasts who come to adventure in this area. 

Our restaurant currently offers elevated bar food and a variety of cocktails, wines, and local craft beers. We also host many community events, live music, and fundraisers. In many ways, however, the food, drinks and events are merely a means to an end, that is to connect with people and create a unique and personal experience for every guest who walks through our doors. We are looking for people who want to be part of the community as a whole and are passionate about connecting with people and creating a warm and welcoming environment while delivering the highest level of service to our guests. We are committed to building staff members who embody our mission and values and encourage others in that direction as well. 

Staff member benefits include free on-site housing, an hourly wage and equitable share of the tip pool paid out bi-weekly, a free shift meal, and free and discounted activities. Seasonal and year-round opportunities are available. 

Apply today and join us for our Winter Season!
