Pros

Great lifestyle. The best skiing anywhere. Unbelievable environment, near a large metro area (live in the city and work and play in the mountains).

Cons

The hospitality/tourism business comes with its challenges. There are seasonal fluxctuations in business levels. Went it's busy, it's very busy. During the off season periods there can be alot of off time from work. Time off is not always during traditional periods, as holidays and weekends are the busiest times.

Advice to Management

Your employees are your most valuable asset. Make sure they get the training and respect they need and deserve!

    Pros

    Snowbird is an amazing ski resort. The skiing is unbelievable, and the perks are great. It is a beautiful place to work.

    Cons

    Snowbird is an amazing ski resort, but not a good place to have a career. Management is inflexible and not innovative. There is not much opportunity for advancement and growth.

    Advice to Management

    There are a large and diverse talent pool coming to work at your resort each season, take advantage of their enthusiasm and listen to their ideas.

  2. It's a ski resort, and it feels like working at a ski resort.

    Pros

    Ski pass, obviously. The skiing is some of the best you'll find anywhere, and the scenery is hard to beat. Lots of fun people come on board to work here seasonally.

    Cons

    The buildings/offices are basically dungeons. The vibe of the resort base area, locals and resort clientele isn't for everyone. There are a lot of egos (but a lot of rad folks who really know how to rip, too). The tram reeks like B.O., puke and cheap whiskey and is claustrophobic hell but people still seem to love it. It's not your charming, old-fashioned resort, like Alta or Brighton.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent when you've got it and find ways to put that talent to use. After every season you lose smart, enthusiastic people because you can't quite figure out how to increase their roles, responsibilities, recognition, pay, etc. Wasted potential.
