How hard is it to get a job at a resort right now
is it like impossible with this economy? I know unemployment is high , but has that made it harder to get resort jobs too?
my sisters friend "who majored is ski resort managment" just got a job a few months ago at a mountain in Utah so it is not impossible, but theirs no guarantees
Last year i got a job as an instructor and i was only 15
GMFB fa life
i'm gonna apply for an instructing job at bridger bowl . . . any one in bozeman know if that is easy or hard to do?
im guessing hard you know cause of this bad economy :)
Thread creator: step back and think about the question you just asked....
Yes, unemployment is high, but those who are unemployed are not "running" off to the ski resorts to get jobs. Working/ living near a ski resort is inconvenient for some and unless it became popular to live and work at a ski resort ( which it is not, out of everyone I went to high school and college with I know of 3 other people total, which is an insane percentage) then you are going to be fine. From living in summit county, colorado the past two years I will tell you that your competition for jobs is pretty pathetic. As long as your some what motivated you can get a DECENT job ( please dont settle with a liftie position). Do some research, ask the right questions, and get er done.

thanks man that was really helpful, what do you do by the way
I'm assuming you're talking about entry level positions here.
I applied for like 20 jobs at 5 or 6 major resorts like 6 days ago and so far Ive gotten 1 call back and one offer.
We don't have a recession where I live in Morgantown, WV so don't ask me. But I think Wisp is hiring if you are in the mid east area
if you are talking about entry level positions it is as easy as it has ever been. Over the next 5ish years resorts are going to be having a very hard time finding staff

You make a lot of threads haha. But an entry level job at a resort shouln't be that hard to land, but then again I guess its all in the area you live in. Some areas have higher unemployment ratings than others. The higher the rating, the harder its gonna be to land a job with a resort or even anybody.
