The Employee Experience
We really care about the kind of people we’re hiring. We take pride in what makes our workplace unique…it’s all about the employees. We want our customers to really notice the awesome people who are running the lifts, serving the hot chocolate, shoveling the walkways, grooming the trails, making the snow...you get it, right?
One of the many great things about working at Stratton is that your days off fall on weekdays when the mountain pretty much belongs just to employees and locals. It’s awesome and not uncommon to find yourself on a trail all by yourself or just with the friends you’re riding with! You'll belong to the Stratton Family, and also the Alterra Mountain Company Family of resorts.
We look for people who we think will mesh well with the vision and culture we promote – people who are excited and passionate about life! We look for people who are positive, motivated and know how to have fun while working hard. Our busiest days are on weekends and during winter holiday times. Our employees are made up of a mix of locals and visitors, from high school-aged through retired adults, and everything in between. Stratton's vision is: 'A bold mountain community cultivating extraordinary experiences.' If we share the same values, chances are that you'd love us and we will love you!
Room and Board
Stratton Mountain Resort does not provide employee housing. BUT...Craigslist, real estate websites, and local newspapers are a great resource. Towns to look for that are within a reasonable driving distance are Bondville, Winhall, Manchester, Jamaica, Rawsonville, Townshend, Newfane, Londonderry, South Londonderry, Chester, and Peru. There are plenty of seasonal rooms and houses to rent for the winter, you just have to do some research. Stratton's managers can direct you to several inexpensive off-mountain housing options.
Housing is cheaper when you share – so convince your best friends to join you on this adventure!

Winter brings parties and races, snowshoe hikes, snowmobile tours, snow tubing, ice skating, fireworks, 24 Hours of Stratton, plus snowboard and freestyle events,concerts and so much more.

Getting Here and Getting Around
This part of southern Vermont does not have public transportation. The village of Stratton is at the very top of a long and winding access road, so we recommend that you bring your own transportation or make arrangements with friends or family for rides to and from work. If you do have your own vehicle, be sure to invest in some good snow tires.
