    I have been working at Mountain High Resort full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You schedule yourself. Private lessons add $25 per hour. Earn tickets for friends. Free season pass to on mountain employees. Cool co workers

    Cons

    Poor base pay. Not many hours sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get that 50 cents per 50 hours back! See if you can come up with a commute compensation program in the future

    Great first job for high school or college students, but don't plan on making this a career or advancing in any way.

    I worked at Mountain High Resort

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is getting a season pass for 10 bucks! You would usually see you friends alot and its not a desk job, you're not just sitting around, if you worked in rentals you could be inside or outside at the corral which is really fun during spring break, or after big storms!

    Cons

    Working during the holidays is very stressful because that of course is the busiest time of year. Due to only one road accessing the resort it can be hard to get to work on time when its jammed with traffic. It also doesn't help that there isn't any employee parking lot for the west resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have an employee lot at west, and a way to get between east and west without having to get on highway 2, like maybe paving the road that is already there

    I worked at Mountain High Resort

    Pros

    The free season pass and the benefits of being on the mountain are the greatest perks. Nothing beats getting off work and being able to snowboard straight away!

    Cons

    The managers, culture, pay, hours distribution, and level of professionalism leave something to be desired, to say the least. Then again, it's a small time ski/snowboard resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your job seriously. The lessons that you pass on to your young employees set a mold for their perceptions of what management is.

  6.  

    Think twice before working for any resort, especially Mountain High.

    I worked at Mountain High Resort

    Pros

    Work with really nice People, Outdoors, Free riding and skiing, the schedule was pretty flexible, and first tracks on powder days.

    Cons

    Long Hours, Low Pay, No Organization, Employee are a means to and end, its all about making money, and extremely poor communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Don't tell managers to treat their employees with respect and then treat the manager disrespectfully. Not every person is replaceable.
