    You get a free ski pass to any and all Vail resort Mountains. The health insurance is pretty good if you are a full time employee.

    It's nice they make benefits available to seasonal employees, but don't get it twisted - you have to be full time season to season, so basically it means you agree to be unemployed half the year, and the benefits package is pretty minimal still. Hope you can find affordable health insurance elsewhere.

    Benefits at market. Ski pass a perk - challenge was having time to use it with long work hour expectations.

    Health Insurance premiums are pretty high with high deductibles. Tough to find people in network. FTO (Flexible Time Off) sucks if you have a boss that argues with you every time you want time off or if you coworkers never use it. PTO was easier since you earn it and you get paid out for it if you left. New system is bad unless you have an awesome boss so bring PTO back! Also no holidays off and good luck getting time off in the winter. Free Ski pass and discount tickets 5 free and 15 50% off. Small discount for on mountain retail and food (food and retail are marked up huge though). Some pro deals but unless you work in retail, there are better deals on amazon. 401K is 3% match. No stock options or bonuses unless you are Grade 26 and above.

    High deductible, not great benefits

    $70.33 out of each biweekly paycheck for a Health Reimbursement Arrangement. This ends up being about ~$2000 a year. I might as well light that money on fire because I haven't been to a doctor in almost 4 years. Only 2 options for healthcare coverage, and NO ABILITY TO OPT FOR A HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (which at least allows you to set that money aside for future use). Some of the most ridiculously expensive healthcare I've encountered. I'm under 30, have no pre-existing conditions, and live an incredibly healthy lifestyle. That means I'm prime for supplementing the system and Vail Resorts takes full advantage of this. The cost of coverage is insane and is more than I've ever paid at any employer in Colorado. I'm furious and disappointed at the lack of options. On top of ridiculously expensive healthcare, they pay you about 30% below what other companies pay.

    No benefits or perks for Employees. Were given discounted meal prices on meals that were already inflated 300% so we still had to pay a lot for lunch.
