    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    A great place to spend a ski season

    Ticket Office (Former Employee) Steamboat Springs, CO

    ProsSkied 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore perks due to low pay

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

    Want to ski or get into the ski industry? Good choice.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBeautiful 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.

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementFocus 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Steamboat doesn't care too much about employees or locals.

    SKi School (Current Employee) Steamboat Springs, CO

    Proson the mountain everyday, on snow.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Snowboard Instructor (Current Employee) Steamboat Springs, CO

    ProsFree 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
