I just want to know, what the hell has happened to the ski bums of the world? I work at one of the lodges in Alta and we are seriously hurting for good employees. And by good employees, I mean kids who are more passionate about skiing than anything else in their world. People who are willing to ski from opening bell until 5 mins before their shift starts. People who want to work their asses off all night, just to wake up the next day and skis their asses off the next whole day.
Seriously, we have on the hill housing, 3 meals a day, ski passes and hourly wages and it feels like we are pulling teeth trying to get employees to work for us. I wish I could be 22 again, ski 100+ days in the winter with the biggest responsibility in my life being to wash my ski socks every other week. Literally, just show up, work, eat, ski, sleep. Sounds fucking amazing!
We are having a killer start to the season snow wise, 75" base, almost 200" so far this year. Alta is skiing better than most resorts in the entire country right now and somehow no one wants to come out here to work and ski. This isn't some corporate ski town owned and run by people who don't ski, this is a family run lodge where everyone is stoked to ski. It isn't even January, if you came out next week, you would still have the opportunity to ski 110 days before the end of the ski season.
DM me if you want a job!
I know you guys are out there! Please come be a ski bum!!!
