Our season typically runs from December to April. All positions require a high level of GUEST SERVICE. Though you may be hired into a specific department, we expect all of our employees to work as part of the Bluewood Team, which means you may be trained and asked to assist in other departments or perform other jobs outside your primary department.

Many positions at Ski Bluewood require attention to written documentation efforts on a continual basis. Communication with your supervisor and your fellow staff members is essential to success, and is expected of all employees.

Thank you for your interest!

Benefits of Employment

  • Mountain Exchange Program. This unbelievable program in the Pacific Northwest allows employees & volunteers from Ski Bluewood to ski or ride at other participating resorts for FREE or at deeply-discounted rates. This is an awesome perk. We love this!
  • Snow breaks. We work toward scheduling that will allow for you to hit the slopes as often as possible during times in which business allows. For those who don't ski or ride and would like to learn--that can be arranged as well.
  • Discounts. Employees enjoy food, beverage (no alcohol) and retail discounts at the ski area. Employees also have access to discounts at local restaurants, bars and hotels in Dayton.
  • Fun! Bluewood offers some of the most amazing SNOW FUN opportunities available anywhere!


Food Service Worker – helps to prepare and serve quality meals and assists our guests. You will be right in the middle of the action, putting your guest service skills to the test.  If you have experience as a grill cook or server, this is the place for you! 

Lift Operator & Attendant – like the outdoors and wearing a smile?…this job is for you. Lift Operators typically start the day shoveling new snow, ensuring load & unload areas are properly shaped, setting up rope lines, and placing signs to assist our guests in loading our three lifts. At 9am the lift begins sending guests to the top of the slopes and it is your job to make sure they are wearing their lift ticket, load--ride--unload the lift safely, and of course give them a big ol’ smile and a “have a great snow day!" -- must be age 18+

Rental Technician – this is often a first-time guest’s first impression of the Ski Bluewood staff. Being friendly and knowledgeable is a must. We will train you with the needed skills for this job.  This is a very rewarding job….often being influential to a newbie falling in love with skiing or snowboarding.

Tickets - Guest Services - Retail - Cashiers – all smiles and answers. These people are very knowledgeable about the facility and resort programs. They have excellent cash handling skills and know how to make the customer feel satisfied. We need ticket sellers, food and beverage cashiers, guest service desk and retail clerks.  These positions put you on the front line with our guests!  

Ski and Snowboard Instructor – you must be an accomplished skier or snowboarder  and be able to speak in front of groups. Instructors are key personnel who keep guests coming back for more! You can imagine just how rewarding this job can be…turning people into snow lovers. These jobs are part-time and often the skiing benefits out weigh the monetary gains, but there is no better way to be a “ski bum” for the winter.  If you love kids...extra stars for you!

Terrain Park Crew -- we are looking for a few good guys & gals to join the park crew ranks this season!  An eye for detail and a strong work ethic is a must as we continue taking The Parks of Bluewood to the next level.  Many of you saw our commitment and revamped efforts towards freestyle terrain last winter, and just wait until you see what's in store for this season.  So, if you enjoy working a shovel & rake....keeping transitions dialed-in all day long....building & maintaining features....assisting with events....skiing & riding....well, this could be the position for you.  Most positions are volunteer in nature, but awesome benefits!  NOTE; as with all positions at Bluewood, all employees may be asked to work in other departments as needed and appropriate.
