Chairlift at Alta
Alta and skiing have been synonymous since 1938. A wide variety of terrain and unparalleled snow conditions, combined with enthusiastic and dependable employees, create the setting for an enjoyable and healthy work environment. Alta Ski Area strongly upholds a commitment to the skiing experience by limiting the number of skiers at Alta in the area and by allowing no snowboarding. We are looking for motivated individuals who can help provide this experience for our skiers, who understand the value of service and have a love of the outdoors. Come join us for the winter season to work and play in the "Greatest Snow on Earth" at Alta Ski Area!
