casualAs a level 1 instructor you were making $16.50? Lol, a lot of lift mechanics don't make that, that's crazy.
Pretty standard across the board that instructors make more than lift mechanics, pisses us right off but goes to show where ski areas think the money deserves to go. ski school is a profit machine, fuck all of us who have a mad specific skill set and work year round busting ass to keep shitty lifts turning...
-what is your position? level II lift mechanic
-what is your hourly wage? $15.50/hr
-do you get paid a different rate on weekends? negative, I work weds-sat all year long, pay never changes based on season or day of the week.
-if you are snowmaking etc, do you work nights or days? our snowmakers have day shift and night shift guys, only two of them stay on for summer to do maintenance on compressors and water lines etc, most of the crew works as soon as fall hits and its cold enough and get laid off around mid december, still get a free season pass though and a lot of them segway into grooming once snowmaking season ends.
-what ski area do you work at? big sky, montana
