Teaching snowboarding, I improved my riding and my service soft-skills. Fun, but not a way to make a living.

Pros

Free ski pass, lots of perks & deals, amazing training for ski/snowboard instructors (as good as or better than PSIA/AASI cert 1), free ride & teaching improvement clinics, fun atmosphere & peers, open-door management.

Cons

Pay rate is low and it's hard to earn more as a newbie (almost everyone has a second job in this town)

  1. It's all about the perks of working for a ski resort...not the pay or professional advancement

    Pros

    I am on snow nearly every day, learning, and helping others learn, how to enjoy the time spent on the ski hill even more! There is paid and unpaid training available to me to help improve my own skills regarding skiing, and to help improve my skills as an instructor. I am fortunate to get my ski pass for free, as well as passes for my children and additional comps and half-price lift tickets to share with friends and family when they visit.

    Cons

    Lack of health insurance coverage for seasonal employees is terrible. Sometimes, during really bad storms, it can get very cold and nasty out. I have to be out, with my guests, no matter what. That can be no fun.

    Advice to Management

    Offer health insurance benefits to seasonal staff.
