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

Pros

work environment has to be one of the best on earth. Doing this as a career leads to some pretty cool perks down the road like discounted stays at other vail resorts and rock resort locations. work your way up with certs and teaching higher level riders is just like riding with friends but give you the ability to skip the lift line.

Cons

the fact that you have to hustle a tip to make the day even marginally monetarily valuable. Dont plan on living a lavish unless you have a high paying job the rest of the year or a 2nd job during the season.

Advice to Management

give instructors more per hour or the ability to work more hours.

    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well managed and fiscally conservative. Leader in the industry. Great people. No jerks. Lots of innovation. Great resort operators. Katz is smart and a great leader. Very good work-life balance. Excellent corporate values, very responsible in the communities they operate in.

    Cons

    Middle management has little autonomy, little ownership and little decision making power. The Executive Committee micromanages all decisions. Compensation is middle to low on the spectrum. Seems to have lots of turnover; likely due to lower pay, higher expectations and no ability to own. Benefit packages are standard for the travel industry, but minimal compared to other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the directors to run their own business, own their decisions.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a free ski pass
    You get mediocre benefits

    Cons

    You will never make what you're worth
    Your work load will only increase the longer you stay, yet you won't receive raises
    People rarely advance
    There is quite a bit of mismanagement
    The turn over rate is excessively high and, therefore, quality of work and efficiency are slim to none

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. They are, after all, the legs you stand on.
