      Pros

      Great ground level management and upper level management. Awesome and diverse teams to work with and get to know over the course of the season. Great way to interact directly with guests from all different backgrounds and cultures. Awesome opportunity for networking and connection.

      Cons

      Work can be boring sometimes. Working outside 100% of the time so some days are really cold and miserable.

      Pros

      Great team to work with every day. Managers and Supervisors are awesome and always willing to help and give tips when you need them. Such a diverse group of individuals working here, you will make friends all around the world.

      Cons

      Early start some days. Big on accountability and being on time so if that isn't you I don't recommend this job. You need to put in the effort and pull your weight on the team otherwise you are going to get called out.

      Alterra has ruined Deer Valley

      Pros

      401k (4% match), good and inexpensive health insurance, good ski benefits

      Cons

      Alterra has made it very clear that their plan is to cut as many positions and wring out every dollar possible, employee (and by extension, guest) happiness be damned. DV really did feel like a big family just four years ago, now it feels the complete opposite. Few people like Alterra or the new president, Jeremy Levitt. I met and worked with a number of really wonderful people, but upper management feels completely detached from the day-to-day operations. Everyone feels overworked, and pay remains really low. Morale was generally awful this season, including among many longtime employees who said it's never been this bad....DV is still a decent place to work for a ski-bum winter, but forget about any long-term career.
