Your local ski resorts just received 4 feet of new snow last night. People will be flocking to the mountains to be the first to ski or snowboard on that fresh powder. The ski lifts will be packed and that's where you come in. These resorts and ski parks will need staff to operate their ski lifts. If you enjoy working in a fast paced environment and don't mind the elements, then a Ski Lift Operator job may be a perfect way to spend the season.
