    Pros

    The people you work with. I loved working at Steamboat because I worked with amazing people from all over the world. It was an experience of a lifetime!

    Seasonal work, but that can also be a pro. Some people like the change each summer.

    I worked at Steamboat Ski Resort full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Skied 80 days, met great people. Had to have 2 jobs to make ends meet, but we are talking about working at a ski resort. This is the norm for the industry.

    Cons

    Low pay. No big surprise there. Advancement requires time, patience and more low pay. If you can make it work, do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More perks due to low pay

    I have been working at Steamboat Ski Resort

    Pros

    Beautiful location. Good and sometimes great team mates. Tons of snow. The town is very livable, and if you like snow sports the mountain and nearby opportunities are boundless.

    Cons

    Not viable as a long term career for most people due to limited opportunities for advancement coupled with low pay scale as compared with non resort jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on year-round activities, it'll help people have year-round employment which will help the community and the resort. Trust your good employees.

    Pros

    on the mountain everyday, on snow.

    Cons

    Outdated marketing, No free passes, make the locals pay way too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give season pass holders more incentives to pay 1200 for a pass. Give each employee and pass holder multiple free day tickets for guest who want to try steamboat. Get a new marketing product and let that old Billy skier guy go and live his last days in peace.

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

    I have been working at Steamboat Ski Resort part-time for more than a year

    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)
