“We are looking for friendly, hardworking individuals who are excited about joining the Bogus Basin team,” said Bogus basin General Manager Brad Wilson, General Manager. “Free skiing is a great perk that all employees have the opportunity to enjoy.”

A range of full and part-time, weekend and holiday-only opportunities are available, including: ski instructors, snowboard instructors, chair riders, day care attendants, ski school sales clerk, lift operators, ski patrol personnel, ticket office workers, plow drivers, parking lot attendants, and more.

The area is also looking for a Nordic Operations Director to manage the Frontier Point Lodge and education center.
