I have been working at Intrawest

Pros

Great Training, Great great people working there, awesome mountain, friendly customers, non restrictive management, good altitude, great snow, awesome events

Cons

Poor upper level management, secluded village, poor wages, poor benefits, poor opportunities as a new instructor to take higher level groups, lack of privates, complete lack of tips.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring wages and benefits up to scratch with close by resorts (Vail). Give instructors oppurtinities to teach higher level classes so they can properly prepare for certs.

    Declining benefits and pay for employees will surely result in declining revenues.

    Pros

    Free ski pass, six plus months of WINTER, high altitude cardio training, pine beetle experiment in action, logging truck competitions on the local highway, learning French language soon

    Cons

    Declining pay and benefits year after year are not the nuturing attributes I need from an employer even if we are owned by a broke hedge fund Fortress. Excuses are like bad jobs, everyone has one so sack up Intrawest and Free us from Fortress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to have a clue to get real , so start asking some questions of people who were employed when it was fun. We all have the answers however you are reluctant to ask it. Figure it out.

    I have been working at Intrawest

    Pros

    Great locations, many fun people work for the company.

    Cons

    Has become a completely cash focused, short time horizon company - does not seem to be thinking or working with any future in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better - we understand things if they are explained to us, and will be more than happy to help.
