Intrawest - Whistler
friends of mine are working for intrawest & i was wondering as a friend can i get many benefits/discounts via them
why don't you ask your friends? would be the kind of obviose choice considering they work there
havnt started workin there yet. not that stupid
ya those chumps can get you cheap lift tickets and food and gear.........your pretty much sponsored now
its in the water
Depends what he dose, if he is a lifty then no. They are probly the same as fucking ASC and dont give shit.
yeah, they cop madd shit for maddd cheap but if intrawest or a manager finds out that they are giving or even worse selling discount merchandise to you they get fired so watch out
Stay Black Nigga
so long as the boss is not looking
I worked at Stratton Mtn (also an Intrawest owned resort) for about 5 years. Benifits for me inculded huge discounts on gear (I worked in a retail shop) discounts retail wide (so other shops in the village) food discounts, free pass, and free lift tickets and discounted lodging at other Intrawest resorts. Usally, if I were to go to another intrawest owned resort, I would get 5 or so days of skiing for free, and roughly 50% off on lodging.
Needless to say, the place also 'got my foot in the door' of the ski industry and now I have moved on the bigger, better things.
So, with that said, I would reccomend getting job for any ski resort, you will get hookups and get to ski quite a bit.
Intrawest season pass holders get half off lift tickets at other resorts. I imagine employees would get something similar.
They get a food discount too but it's not spectacular. Something like 10-20% off.
intrawest r tight asses so good luck gettin something threw a friend.
go buy 50 nuts
Friends don't get jack in the way of Discounts. The loophole is if your buddy uses his discount to buy stuff 'for himself' that he just decides to sell to you right afterwards. Staff get some ticket discounts (very few - like 2 half price for first year seasonal staff as I recall) with their Christmas paycheque, but that's about it. Don't think for even a second that you have hit the gravy train. Not legitimately anyhow.
