Southeastern Region Ski Resort Jobs

The Southeastern United States is a great place for an exciting ski and snowboard experience. The ski resorts aren’t huge or internationally well known, but they do make excellent places to be in nature and to slide around on the snow that covers the Appalachian Mountains. The rolling hills, light hearted mountain experience, and fun filled skiing adventures are unlike skiing anywhere else.

The Southeastern Region includes North Carolina, Maryland, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. It’s a big region with around 15 ski resorts nestled into the mountains. They typically operate from Thanksgiving until March, depending on the snow conditions.

The Southeastern ski resorts may not be the resorts written up in ski magazines, or the places you daydream about, or the spots in the latest ski flick, but they do offer skiing and snowboarding to people all over the region. Every resort needs hard working folks to run the lifts, be on ski patrol, instruct lessons, work in shops, coach up and coming racers, and perform other ski resort operations. Working here is a wonderful place to perfect your skills, earn certifications, escape the Southern heat, or just play in the mountains. Generally the clientele is made up of locals and guests from within the region who bring a nice southern, local feel to the ski areas.

If you want to work at one of the ski resorts in this area as a college kid on holiday break, a city dwelling weekend warrior, or as a full time ski aficionado then be sure to apply early. There are plenty of both full time and part time opportunities and who knows where this job will take you.
