Ski Lift Operator, Winter Park, Colorado, USA - December 9, 2013
A typical work day consists of a beautiful scenery with a great work environment and eager holiday goers. I learned how to look after heavy machinery and perform maintenance checks. Also improved on snowboarding abilities. The management was great with crew leaders always nearby and employee managers always on hand to help with issues. Many co-workers were experienced and were eager to share their knowledge and were all fun loving people from all over the country. The hardest part of the job was the physical requirements, spending all work time on your feet or riding up and down the mountain, being the first on the mountain and making sure me and the team were the last down. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was free access to the ski runs in free time, great location and great people to work with and under.
