Sleigh Host - Fine Dining – Zach’s Cabin - Full & Part Time, Winter Seasonal - Beaver Creek, CO

Beaver Creek: Leave your everyday life behind. 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; and 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.

Zach’s Cabin: Nestled amongst the aspens on Bachelor’s Gulch Mountain overlooking the Gore Range, our cabin is a “ski in-ski out” signature private members club during the day. At night we open to the public where elegant alpine sleigh ride and fine dining experiences are made. Our location and atmosphere is unlike any other on the mountain. Join our staff and become part of the Vail Resorts family with locations and opportunities around the world. Beaver Creek is a winter wonderland that will be sure to provide an experience of a lifetime.

The Sleigh Host is responsible for warmly greeting and welcoming all guests onto the sleigh. Sleigh Hosts are also responsible for the safety, comfort, and entertainment of Zach’s guests as they travel to and from the cabin on the sleigh. During the 10 minute, un-interrupted sleigh ride, this "performer" will share local knowledge, tell age and audience appropriate stories, and star gaze to entertain as guests making their entire Zach's Cabin experience a memorable one. The Sleigh Host also will help guests in and out of the sleigh and maintain all equipment (sleigh, ponchos, and blankets).
