This press release came out a few days ago and I think it's a pretty neat program. I don't know anyone interested in it, but I thought someone here might be. If you've got some time off, like a spring break, it might be a great way to travel to Colorado and get some skiing in. As it says below, you'll have to be able to commit to at least 4 days of work out of 7 days, but the perks seem really good. The "temporary housing" referenced below most likely refers to our employee housing building that's on the resort and about 200 yards from the chairlifts. It sounds like a win-win program.

Now Hiring Temporary Employees during Peak Business Periods in March

Copper Mountain, CO… Feb. 21... Study, study, ski; study, ski, study. College life can limit one’s budget, but it doesn’t have to limit the given right to a fun spring break. Copper’s Human Resources Department is looking for motivated students who don’t yet have plans for spring break and are interested learning what life after college in the resort industry can be all about.

“This is the perfect opportunity to experience a ski town, meet great people and take advantage of the best mountain employee benefits, all while making a few extra dollars. It’s also an opportunity for university students interested in learning about the industry to gain exposure to resort operations,” commented Copper’s Human Resources Manager, Sarah Wing.

Employees are rotated through a number of departments including: Food and Beverage, Parking and Village/Base Operations, Ticket Checking, Rental, Retail and Housekeeping. Compensation starts at $8.25 per hour plus a transferable day ticket for each day worked. Selected employees will be offered temporary housing at $9.00 per night. Employees also receive free lift tickets at 13 resorts in Colorado including Copper Mountain & Winter Park/Mary Jane, food & beverage discounts, free Copper Ski & Ride School lessons, retail discounts and more.

Those interested must have a service-centered background or interest in hospitality, a strong positive attitude and a willingness to commit to working at least four days over each one week period. In addition, candidates must be able to work in the cold, share fun times with other people and love to ski or ride Colorado. Positions are available throughout the month of March.
