Would you like to work at a ski resort this winter, get a free season pass and meet new people? It’s the time of year that resorts are hiring and one of the best ways to get a foot in the door is to attend job fairs. Job fairs are a great opportunity to learn about different positions available, meet full-time employees, apply for a job, interview or even get offered a job on the spot. 

Fairs ofter offer positions as ski instructors, parking attendants, children’s center attendants, park crew as well as in retail stores, food and beverage, human resources, marketing, ski patrol, lift operations, season pass offices, etc.
