Join Aalta Sports…

Equal Opportunity Employer
No discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, religion, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability.

Work hard – play hard. We provide every full-time employee with a merchant ski pass. NO WE DON’T PLAY GAMES BY TAKING MONEY OUT OF YOUR CHECK TO PAY FOR YOUR PASS …MANY SHOPS DO, NOT US. It is not a requirement to ski or board 5 days a week but we attempt to set up a schedule to allow each staff member to be on the mountain 5 out of 7 days a week. If you can ski or board 5 days a week, you are a machine.

We also offer a good wage, sales incentives and have team goals for a trip to Mexico at the end of the year. Yes a trip to Mexico if your store hits is revenue goals for the winter. We have always had a good time in Mexico.

At the same time be ready to work hard and apply yourself…why not work hard and get a great reference. Aälta Sports has won ‘The Best Customer Service Award’ in the Vail Valley. We have no room for slackers. We are a team and have a great time. During the course of the year we set up events where our staff from Vail Village, Lionshead and Beaver Creek get together and have some fun….bowling, laser tag… Our owner buys the food and beers (providing you are of legal age) for this event and it is a good night out.

Oh yeah, we have locations in Vail Village (ski in – ski out), Lionshead (steps from the Gondola) and Beaver Creek (on the plaza and a short walk to the main chair lift) so it is pretty convenient to walk out the door to the lift and do some turns.

We have an impressive array of winter jobs available, everything from ski and snowboard instructors to chair lift mechanics see below for some of our opitions.

The ski season runs roughly from December  to April. We look to hire at least two months before the season starts.

We have lots of staff perks and even a pension scheme. The Altaa Scheme is a defined contribution scheme. This means that contributions from both you and the employer are paid into a Retirement Account which is invested and managed by Portafina. On retirement, the Retirement Account is used to provide benefits to you.

The amount of benefits will depend on:

  • the amount of contributions
  • the investment returns achieved on the selected investment funds
  • investment and administration charges
  • the annuity rate the type of benefit you choose to buy.
