Upon arrival for work, all new and returning employees must present valid documentation that meets the requirements of the federal government's I-9 form. Without proper documentation we will be unable to allow you to work and you will have to leave the property. All documents must be unexpired originals. For information on acceptable forms of documentation, please visit   



Shortly after you apply – no matter the season – we’ll call or e-mail to schedule a phone interview. During that initial interview, we’ll start to identify the best roles to match your passions with our needs for the season. If you have already applied for one or more positions, and then apply for additional jobs, we may not email or call you for that initial phone interview. You’ll already be in our queue.

During the interview process, be prepared to immerse yourself in the experience and open up so we can get to know each other. We are as passionate about the mountains as you are. Prepare to share your enthusiasm with us.

If we are able to offer you employment, you will receive a job offer letter outlining your position, wage, scheduled arrival date, start date, expected end date, and other information. Please do not accept our employment offer unless you intend to work the full dates on the offer.

 All employees must be willing to perform duties as assigned. The Company reserves the right to modify positions, duties, location, and hours.

International Applicants


Vail Resorts offers a limited number of international employment opportunities per year, mostly in seasonal roles (some entry level and some skilled). Each year we hire hundreds of J1 Student Visas, which enable people from around the world to experience living and working at a mountain resort in another country. Most of the students accepted on J1 Visas partner with, and attend job fairs in their home country, where they can meet our hiring managers and sometimes receive a job offer on the spot. We would recommend this avenue for all new J1 Students. Are you a student who has previously worked for us and wants to return for another season? Work with your previous manager to see how you can start your next adventure with us.
