Stratton Mountain’s employees are a mix of permanent & temporary residents of southwestern Vermont. Our Employee housing is extremely limited, and it is prioritized by position worked. Most employees make housing arrangements independently. If you’re thinking of relocating to the Stratton area for a winter season, securing housing should be a top priority. Most employees find housing on Craigslist by searching in the small towns in the area, including: Manchester, Londonderry, Peru, Winhall, Chester, Bondville, Jamaica, Newfane, Wardsboro & Rawsonville. Hiring managers, along with the Human Resources office have a list of leads to help temporary residents find affordable housing options for the winter. You’ll need your own transportation, as there is no public transportation available. rich-text
Stratton Volunteers are an outgoing, friendly team of winter enthusiasts who enhance our guests’ experience with their invaluable knowledge of Stratton Mountain Resort. Volunteer tasks include greeting and assisting guests, on-mountain tours, safety patrol, lift-line organization, market research, trail map and brochure distribution and end of day farewell. Strong intermediate ski or snowboard ability is necessary for on-mountain participation. Volunteers complete training days and a minimum number of volunteer days throughout the season. In exchange for their service, volunteer hosts are given a season pass.

- THE RIGHT CLOTHING. Be sure to ask your new manager/supervisor about dress code or recommended clothing/footwear for the job you will be doing, especially if you’re working outdoors. They can give you some great tips for layering and staying warm and dry. Proper footwear is really important! The outdoor crews around the resort do an amazing job of shoveling and salting walkways and roads. However, conditions are constantly changing, so it’s your responsibility to be cautious. If something looks icy, it probably is! Be careful. Keep in mind that our winters can be unpredictable. A day could start out sunny and warm and by the end of your shift, it may be snowing. Be prepared for anything!
- TRANSPORTATION. This part of southern Vermont does not have public transportation. The village of Stratton is at the very top of a long and winding access road, so we recommend that you bring your own transportation or make arrangements with friends or family for rides to and from work. If you do have your own vehicle, be sure to invest in some good snow tires, and make sure you have an emergency kit in your car at all times in case you get stuck somewhere.
- MONEY. Bring enough to live on for a few weeks. Depending on when you arrive and start working, you may not get paid for three weeks because of how our payroll cycles work. If you don’t have a vehicle, it can be hard to find your way to a bank. We recommend that you set up direct deposit when you arrive. Make sure you have a little bit of a cushion until you are fully settled.
When do I get paid? Where do I pick up my pay check?
When should I apply for a job?

So we’re going to ask a lot of questions. We want to get to know you a little bit. We hope that after talking to us, you’ll want to work here even more!
