Fresh Snowfall Greets Job Seekers at Big White

Nothing like a fresh coating of champagne powder snow to remind you that ski and snowboard season is on its way. And if you're considering a career on the slopes, the annual Big White job fair is the best place to start. Big White employs over 800 seasonal workers to perform a wide variety of jobs - front desk clerks for the Inn at Big White, on-hill reservations staff, guest services personnel, and of course, everyone's favourite - the humble lift operator - "liftie." There's something for everybody from entry level jobs to specialized positions where prior experience is a big asset.

The job fair will be held at the Best Western Kelowna (2402 Highway 97 North) on Friday, October 16 from noon until 8:00 pm, and then from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm on Saturday. Job applicants should bring their resumes and be prepared for an interview.

Throughout the season, prospective job seekers can find out employment openings and fill in the online application form.
