    Management (Current Employee) Alta, WY

    ProsOutstanding recreational opportunities year round. New management has succeeded in turning things around in the past 4 years. 2013-2014 is the most successful year ever. The lean years the other reviews referred to are now over. The positive working environment has attracted much new talent. Satisfied employees are bringing in equally talented referrals. Good work/life balance. Excellent employee housing. Fair pay. Great advancement opportunities for high performing returners. Great music festivals. This resort and the ski towns here are the real deal. Authentic, artsy, laid back, friendly. This place is a rare find. Not over commercialized, elitist or overly crowded like some others. We are also near two national parks and several other major ski areas. Jackson Hole's retail, restaraunts and night life is less than an hour away as well.

    ConsSome non revenue departments seem to be under staffed. The Resort is working on improving infrastructure and cosmetics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember what makes this resort special.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Professional uphill battle with some alpine downhill reward

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Alta, WY

    ProsYou must love skiing and the remote outdoors if you plan to work here. The skiing and outdoor recrecational opportunites are absolutely great. Great things to say about the skiing, the area, and the recreational choices abound.

    ConsThe owner does not properly operate this resort like a business. This would be fine if he had the financial resources to do this but he does not as evidenced by the stress put on the managment teams to cut costs. The culture should be awesome (it's a ski resort) but the culture here has developed to be a bunch of people who complain about everything. It is a real shame because the resort has so much potential and should be a fun place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunatly the best move may be to sell the resort to someone with the funds to put in the much needed capital improvements.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A struggling resort with burned out management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Alta, WY

    ProsSki privileges, wonderful area to live with a tight knit community if you have a steady job.

    ConsLack of dept funding causes stressed out management.
    Human resources does not follow good business practices.
    Absence of work/life balance.
    Owner is unavailable and does not provide a positive and reassuring role model for staff.
    Staff feels like they're "working for the man."

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the resort so that the new owners can fund it correctly and employees can be treated fairly and compensated well for their efforts. This will also create a new and positive vibe for the disgruntled community who survives off the growth and stability of this resort and of tourism in general.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
