Working at Ski Mountain in Vermont
DONE BY: Nina Redpath | Fieldston '17
LENGTH: 3 months
LOCATION: Bromley Mountain, Vermont
DESCRIPTION: I worked as a Lift Attendant. This meant that I got to ski for free and had plenty of breaks (some paid) during the day to do so. I like my coworkers and the work environment was very relaxed. However, towards the end the job definitely got a bit boring.
TOP TIPS: My advice here would be to take advantage of the employee discounts that most mountains offer in rentals. I rented a snowboard for very cheap and learned how to snowboard a bit (I am usually a skier). I would also say that if you have some experience, think about a ski instructor job instead, I think they are a little more interesting.
