    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice amount of time off
    Generally simple work although demanding manual labor can be expected

    Cons

    There was a very large disconnect between upper management and the day-to-day staff.

    Advice to Management

    Especially in day-to-day activities, upper management would get involved or say thing to lift operations that was often outside of their understanding. In particular, there was a specific 2 week period where management provided a new layout for the lift maze every day.
