If you are wanting a position for the winter but have not been hired by Nov 6, then yes! Most departments will be hiring before that event as well as during the job fair.

Do I need to fill out an application online before the job fair?

We will have you fill one out online when you come to the job fair if you have not done that ahead of time. We do recommend to bring some resumes with you to the fair as the online application doesn’t always allow you to show all of your skills and experience.

Do you have transportation from NAU?

We are working on having more transportation options available for our staff. Most of our staff do carpool, so many people do not find transportation an issue once they get started.

I saw that your staff get free season passes, what happens if I already bought one?

We will be reimbursing passes near the end of the season for employees that have already purchased passes before being hired. The amount that you are reimbursed will depend on how long you were employed with us during the winter season.

Yes, we have 3 ways you can volunteer. First, the ski patrol department has the courtesy patrol to help and support if there is an incident or you can volunteer through National Ski Patrol. The second area that you can volunteer is as a part of our guest service department as a mountain host. Our mountain hosts are very cheerful, friendly, and helpful and are ready to help our guests if they have questions. The third program you can volunteer through is our adaptive ski program to help those with physical and mental disabilities enjoy getting on the mountain. You can email Emily at [email protected] if you are interested in any of these opportunities to serve.

How long does the season normally last?

We are planning to open on November 10, however most new staff won’t start until sometime in December (this will depend on how much of the mountain we can have open). The season typically goes until the middle of April or later.

Do you offer staff housing?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer any staff housing.
