    Former Employee - Adult Snowboard Instructor in Breckenridge, CO

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    work environment has to be one of the best on earth. Doing this as a career leads to some pretty cool perks down the road like discounted stays at other vail resorts and rock resort locations. work your way up with certs and teaching higher level riders is just like riding with friends but give you the ability to skip the lift line.

    Cons

    the fact that you have to hustle a tip to make the day even marginally monetarily valuable. Dont plan on living a lavish unless you have a high paying job the rest of the year or a 2nd job during the season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give instructors more per hour or the ability to work more hours.

    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well managed and fiscally conservative. Leader in the industry. Great people. No jerks. Lots of innovation. Great resort operators. Katz is smart and a great leader. Very good work-life balance. Excellent corporate values, very responsible in the communities they operate in.

    Cons

    Middle management has little autonomy, little ownership and little decision making power. The Executive Committee micromanages all decisions. Compensation is middle to low on the spectrum. Seems to have lots of turnover; likely due to lower pay, higher expectations and no ability to own. Benefit packages are standard for the travel industry, but minimal compared to other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the directors to run their own business, own their decisions.
