Ideally you will have:

  • The ability to empathise with operators and maintain a polite and professional demeanour at all times.
  • Situational awareness and the ability to keep personal and team member safety as your principal priority.
  • The ability to ski, snowboard or snowshoe to an intermediate level (so as to travel between hospitality operators within the ski areas themselves).
