The culture and environment within the department team were amazing. The manager was phenomenal and spent great effort in cultivating a working environment where you were excited to come to work. Focused on sustainability and allowed team members to take more responsibility and grow. Last but not least SNOWBOARDING or skiing(up to you). Great job if you are passionate about the outdoors and sustainability.
The pay and corporate management, the pay was much too low barely liveable in a resort town. There were several occasions where situations could have been handled better by corporate. Another con is verbal abuse from customers. I'd also add that the overall team was amazing but it was not uncommon to find those who did not meet the standard, however, the pay is not livable enough for many people.

Living in cool places. Working outside. Meeting new people.
Lowest possible pay. They lead by the budget. You are replaceable and they let you know it. Expensive areas of operations, not paid enough to live where you work. The company is growing fast, but the infrastructure is not keeping up.

Free pass (only has one mountain worth skiing in CA/NV; Kirkwood), food discounts, cool families in the teams program, a few cool coworkers.
The majority of the management, both senior and mid level, had nothing but the companies bottom dollar in interest. From the CEO/COO down to ski team management. I was told by a ski team manager that coaches 'should not let their athletes progress too fast because then the parents would realize they needed better coaches and a better mountain', and that the goal was to keep them long enough to buy a house at northstar and lock them into the vail ecosystem. This same director drove away an alarming number of coaches, predominantly female. There's no room for misogyny in the ski industry any more. Although apparently Vail/Northstar doesn't feel the same. The bottom line 100% financially based decision making was an utter disappointment for someone who has put decades into the ski industry. The lack of livable pay or easily accessible and quality benefits for seasonal employees is pathetic. You can't survive in a ski town with what they pay, and they expect you to dedicate more time than you're paid for.

Ski pass with great pay. National and international guests with great attitudes.
It can be hectic when we get natural snow dumps. Cold and wet at times due to the fact that we are outside all the time

-Free Epic Pass & access to all Epic/Vail Resorts -Work right on the mountain -More professional environment compared to other resorts -Gear, clothing, food & experiential discounts
-Not a lot of opportunities for career advancement -Difficult/long commute when you factor in weather, parking, resort / weather traffic, walking/taking bus from parking to walking through village & taking gondola up. -Pay has improved slightly but still not great

Little advancement opportunity, majority of positions are below average pay. Housing around the TruckeeHousing around the TruckeeHousing around the Truckee area is very expensive, creating an even bigger issue due to low pay.1
