Ideal candidates will have a valid driver’s license, be comfortable with the outdoors any season, and have knowledge of Microsoft Office including Outlook, Excel, and Word. Must be able to regularly lift and/or move up to 50lbs and be able to work at varying heights. Weekends are a must during the winter months and for full-time year-round, some summer weekends will be necessary. Days off change dependent on the season- ski season, river float season and in-between seasons. Prefer year-round candidates who have or who are willing to obtain a Class B CDL with passenger endorsement.

Salary or hourly pay is commensurate with demonstrable skills and abilities. Benefits for full time year-round include health, dental, vision, retirement plan, health savings account, 3 weeks of vacation, free season pass and free river floats for employees/dependents, and employee discount programs (i.e., food & beverage, retail/rental, tickets, etc.) are also available.
