Summer jobs; can’t live with them, can’t live without ’em. When the weather is nice, the last thing you want to do is spend your days working inside on tasks half-asleep as you count the hours until you can hit the road. But what if you could make money, have fun, and play outside all at the same time? At Blue, the whole Mountain is our office and ziplining, hiking, smiling, and swimming are our daily tasks. There’s never a dull moment or a day repeated at Blue, so check out these top 7 reasons why you’ll have the best summer ever working with us this season.
1. Unlimited Hiking & Cross-Country Biking Trail Access
Being outdoors is in our DNA which is why all employees get unlimited free access to our over 30km of hiking and cross-country biking trails all season long. Take a long lunch and hike up Cascade trail for beautiful views of waterfalls and the escarpment, or bike your way through the Orchard to explore all that the mountain has to offer.
2. Take Advantage of Discounts on Dining, Shopping & Stays
We have a wide selection of discounts for employees, including 40% off select dining like Starbucks, The Pottery Restaurant, Grand Central Lodge, Summitview Pavilion and more. Plus, save on some of your favourite brands like Patagonia, Columbia, The North Face, Vans and more when you use your discount at Blue Mountain Resort-owned retail stores. Want to take a little vacay away from home? Stay overnight with awesome staff rates at our hotels right in the Village.
3. Have Fun In The Sun On The Gondola, Golf Course & Private Beach
The perks just keep on coming. Did you know that employees not only get unlimited access to ride the Open-Air Gondola, but that they also get access to the private Blue Mountain Beach and free golf rounds at Monterra Golf? Soak up all the long summer days outdoors splashing around or teeing off with friends for free.
4. Tuition Assistance Opportunities And Referral Bonuses for Students
It pays to be a student at Blue, especially if you work with us for more than one season. Post Secondary education can be expensive and we want our staff to succeed in achieving their goals. We are proud to be able to initiate the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) as an option for employees to pursue their education. Each year, Blue Mountain will select up to 10 student employees to receive an education bursary. Work for us for two seasons or more, and Blue Mountain will give you the opportunity to receive $500 per season towards your College or University education. Plus, recommend your friends for roles at Blue, and receive a $350 bonus for each eligible referral!
5. Play All Day For Less
While you might be climbing ropes or zooming on the Ridge Runner during work, you’ll also get the chance to experience our epic summer attractions for less with discounted Play All Day attraction tickets for you and your friends & family all summer long.
6. Exciting Employee Events Fueled By An Inclusive Work Culture
At Blue we say “Our Mountain will move you”, and that’s never truer than in the summer months when Mother Nature really lets us shine with tons of fun employee events. Whether you come for a season, or a career, at Blue Mountain Resort you play an important part in our story. Our success is built from a shared sense of purpose for creating incredible experiences for our guests and employees alike. We are committed to supporting a culture of diversity and inclusiveness across the organization and believe in equal opportunity as it is our priority to ensure a barrier-free recruitment and selection process.
7. Meet Friends For Life & Have Fun On The Job!
There’s magic in our mountain. A visit here is transformative, and working even one season is life-changing. The people you’ll meet and work with often become lifelong friends who you can share a love for the outdoors with.
