To anyone who has worked or has been at windells, please help
So I want to get a awesome summer skiing season in and the choices are very slim in the USA. Really doesn't seem cost efficient to leave the country, so I am gonna apply to Camp windells for summer work.
I had some questions for anyone who can answer.
1. Is the pay worth while?
Im not good enough to coach, so I would be a grounds keeper, cook, driver, security or something along those lines. Do they pay worth while and do they get housing options?
2. If your not a coach or counselor do you still get a pass to rid on the Mountain?
I want to ski in the summer so I need a pass for the Mountain, kinda simple question.
3. How competitive are the jobs for lower level employees?
I know I'm applying to lower level jobs but it is Windells and I assume it is still competitive. If I wrong to assume this Please tell me.
4. Whats the Likely hood that I could get Hired?
I'm a second year lift operator at Buttermilk MNT. in Aspen, CO. I have a A.A.S in Park and Recreation. I got hard midwest work ethic. I've had lots of outdoor jobs like guiding, Park security, BLM fencing, Wildfire fighting, other miscellaneous jobs.
What is the likely hood of me getting hired or do they only hire guys who are good at the sports they have at the camp?
if you are good enough to coach i think COC is the place to work. if not, you would be better off trying to get a job at timberline. The Black Iron Grill, cdr, parking lot, salt crew, and the gift shop are a few of the jobs to go for.
1. You get paid to work here, you have access to all our facilities and park. we have employee housing and you get meals on all days that you are working... Definitely worth it.
2. Certain positions do get passes and others dont
3. Your'e definitely not the only one applying for lower level jobs, so yeah its pretty competitive. Do something creative to stand out to us.
4. Get a resume and cover letter together, do something creative and send it over to us. we would love to see what you have as far as experience goes. We will be beginning our hiring process come march so try and get it to us as soon as possible.
Hey thanks for the Info Guys!
I checked their site. at least 18
Correct, all employees must be atleast 18.
Another option includes working at skibowl adventure park. You get exchange letters and can ski Timberline for free.
