Its ski area covers 670 acres and includes 97 ski trails for the enjoyment of skiers and snowboarders of all levels. One of the most powerful snowmaking systems in Southern Vermont, Stratton has snow guns on 93% of the mountain allowing us to offer impeccable snow conditions.

We really care about the kind of people we’re hiring. We take pride in what makes our work place unique… it’s all about the employees. We want our customers to really notice the awesome people who are running the lifts, serving the hot chocolate, shoveling the walkways, grooming the trails, making the snow… you get it, right?
We look for people who we think will mesh well with the culture we promote – people who are excited and passionate about life! We look for people who are positive, motivated, and know how to have fun while working hard!

When should I apply for a job? We start posting jobs for the winter season in late summer. Keep checking the website through early fall and into December. We try to have most jobs filled by Thanksgiving. Some jobs remain posted throughout the season, so just keep looking until you see something you like. Then go for it.
Is there employee housing?
Stratton Mountain Resort does not provide employee housing. Craigslist, real estate websites, and local newspapers are a great resource. Towns to look for that are within a reasonable driving distance are: Bondville, Winhall, Manchester, Jamaica, Rawsonville, Londonderry, South Londonderry, Chester, and Peru. There are plenty of seasonal rooms and houses to rent for the winter, you just have to do some research!
What should I bring?
Stratton is committed to the Employee Experience, and we dedicate ourselves to the active pursuit of health, well-being, and work/life balance. Along with your free season’s pass, our generous perks program allows employees discounts on Training & Fitness Center and golf memberships, an allotment of vouchers for friends and family, and ski passes for dependents.
Full time Stratton employees get free day tickets to Magic, Mount Snow and Bromley Mountains, and receive industry rates at all other ski areas (except for weekends and holidays). Full time employees are also eligible to receive 5 free consecutive days and lodging discounts at other Intrawest resorts: Steamboat, Winter Park, Tremblant, Snowshoe and Blue.

We hope to see you this Winter!
