Ski Resort Workers
Ski resort workers run the gamut from entry level to highly skilled. Each is important for maintaining the order and operations of the resort community. One of the largest departments is ski lift operation. Ski lift operators make sure skiers have safe transport. There are several steps taken daily before a ski lift is opened to the public. First, ice, snow, or tree branches are cleared from the machinery and the loading and unloading platforms. Next, all machinery and parts are cleaned and checked for safety. Finally, an experienced member of the lift staff conducts a trial run.
