my ASSertion is spot on.

Having, myself being a ski bum for 28years.
Started as a lift opp at CBMR. then as a cat opp 2nd year, foreman 3rd year, as the superviser of the slope maintenance dept. in angel fire resort (grooming/trail work)

Ski area management is still the same and the need for seasonal workers is
same as it ever was.

Why have a dozen threads on the same subject.
Why have to go to multiple threads to get the same info.
I'm not going to regurgitate the same info over and over.

Even the mods agree or they would not have combined 2 threads.

regardless of "market forces " resorts need employes every year.
and the strategy remains the same year after year.

How do I know, Because I did the hiring for my dept and I socialize with the other supervisors and my GF was in HR

I don't agree that years ago info is still "useful" as a rule, it depends on market forces etc. Things have changed radically lately. All bets are off.

Default Looking to work in Vail/breckenridge for the winter season?

Just throwing this out there to see if i get any bites....

I just moved to colorado, and would love to live/work in vail/breckenridge (or thereabouts) for the winter season or longer. I am very hard-working, youngish (29), good-looking (if that helps haha), extremely dependable and honest. I just sold a business in which I worked 7 days a week basically for the last 10 years. I'd love to experience living and working in a resort town, as its always something I wanted to do. I am currently staying in Denver but could make the trip asap for the right opportunity.
So, if anyone has any connections or friends in the area looking for honest, good help please shoot me a reply. I have my resume ready... I really don't care what kind of work it is, my background is food/bev/hospitality (owned a cafe for 10+ years) but I'm open to anything. Money is not a huge motivator here, meeting new people, having a chance to work hard for someone and learn a new trade would be awesome. Room and board would be great as well... if at all possible.

My experience in hospitality is broad- Cook, prep, server, owner/operator, sales, etc...

If you know someone looking for a worker, I will not dissapoint you!

Any advice, offers, help welcomed. Thanks much in advance!

Sounds like you could get a job working for Vail Resorts (Vail, BC, Breck, Key) in a second. And sounds like you could do anything from Mountain operations (running a lift), to F&B, to hospitality; and that's basically all that there is up there in the winter. I don't have any connections, but used to work for Vail, and they're always hiring. (www.vailresorts.com)
