  • Lead the takedown of the base area at the end of the season

What Makes This Job Great

  • Work with a driven, entrepreneurial and creative team that is bringing something new to skiing
  • This role has significant growth and leadership potential (for example, last year’s Base Area Director is now Bear Mountain’s GM)
  • Grow the sport of backcountry skiing and build the vibe you love

Special Benefits

If needed we can provide employee housing at a significantly discounted rate
