Loved my position and team but the pay was extremely unreasonable for the area. Cost of living outweighed the benefits of this position however it was a great resume builder and fun experience.

The culture at Vail Resorts needs improvement. Front line employees often do not feel respected or heard. Communication is poor and makes tasks more difficult.

Employee in Broomfield, CO

Be prepared to be taken advantage of and overworked. There are well-intentioned managers, but they have to worry about their own jobs. Not worth the free ski pass.

Ski & Snowboard Instructor in Mercersburg, PA
on November 3, 2022

Another great work family. I’ve been employed at whitetail since 2016 and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. Great second job for the benefit of free skiing. Ski training is impeccable with many Level 3 PSIA employees. Snowboarders are cooler though
