Pursue your fullest potential and never settle in the quest to deliver extraordinary guest service. Join one of the world's most innovative companies and re-imagine a mountain resort experience with us. Welcome to Vail Resorts. Reach Your Peak.




Beaver Creek: At the gate, you leave everyday life behind. That's why people travel to Beaver Creek, Colorado from all over the world, and many make it a tradition. The drama of rock and sky, the sheer grandeur of this place, is one reason. That it is North America's World Cup Mountain is another. It is also a place of intimacy. A private resort hidden from view, with the power to bring people together.
Race Crew at Beaver Creek Resort are responsible for the production of our annual Birds of Prey World Cup races. This is a premier stop on the Men’s World Cup tour. It is hard work but extremely rewarding seeing these top Athletes preform and know that our Team made this happen. The remainder of the season we still host other races. We have daily public racing at our EpicMix Racing venue. We also host other special events throughout the winter season including USSA, USCSA, and Corporate Group races.  Race crew duties include providing excellent guest service, event set up, execution and cleanup that can include timing, announcing, course setting, course maintenance, registration, starting, manning a scoreboard and hill clean up.  Race crew will also be asked to do other duties as assigned. Race Crew can be a fun and rewarding job for someone who loves to work outside.
Race Crew is required to work a varied schedule any day of the week with extended hours during special events and holidays.  For example during World Cup a normal day can start at 5:00am and finish at 7:00pm. Normal work days are from 8:00am until 4:30pm.
