Marketing Research Associate (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, Colorado – August 6, 2014
The hours were fine and I was busy, which I prefer. Management was fine, no issues, ever though I'm not used to having a "boss." The guests asked plenty of questions and I learned many answers. All in all it was a fine time.

if you are looking to live on ramen noodles and ski for free then this is the place to work. If you are looking for career advancement and opportunity to live in a real community this is not the place to work.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – September 26, 2017
cool industry, free ski pass, discounts around the industry, fun work environment/coworkers low pay, poor management (preach better leadership, but don't follow through), expanding too quickly and hiring doesn't keep up, favoritism

Front Office Manager (Former Employee) – Vail, CO – September 25, 2017
Vail Resorts was a great place to get a foot in the door if you want to work in hospitality. However, once you reach a salaried position you will likely work 60 to 70 hours a week. Benefits are mediocre and the work/life balance is not as advertised. They bait you in by providing you with an annual ski pass/benefits and say it outweighs the low pay. However, you later learn that your ski pass is blacked out on many dates and the health and dental benefits are poor. I would highly recommend to not work for Vail Resorts.
Level Two Mountain Activities Guide (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, CO – September 25, 2017
You come to an amazing crew and begin the day inspection all the equipment to ensure the kid's safety. You bring 3 bags that weigh 50lbs all the way up the mountain. Go through the ropes and zip line course to make sure nothing is loose. Families arrive and you make sure the kids and parents stay happy.
Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Edwards – September 23, 2017
Long hours, poor communication. Ski pass was nice. Lots of wasted time on corporate projects that added little value. The experience of a lifetime was at times more focused on guest fleecing than guest experience.
Conference Service Manager (Former Employee) – Dillon, CO – September 19, 2017
Often times there was more group events to plan for than a normal eight hour work day could allow. Besides receiving information from event organizers late and trying to schedule all activities, last minute groups would also be assigned. Once the event was taking place, it was a constant concern of who could be calling for what, which also meant the conference manager needed to be on site to ensure the event ran smoothly.
Great Ideas at the Executive Level - Poor execution at the Mgr level
IT Analyst II / Telecom OSP (Current Employee) – Avon, CO – September 17, 2017
The executives of Vail Resorts really do try to make the company a great place to work. However, there is an ingrained culture of very poor management at the lower levels that hamstring the initiatives almost every time.
