Resorts offers hourly pay, tickets, discounts and raffle
KILLINGTON - Killington Resort plans for demand to exceed norms
over President's Day week, Feb. 15-20 this season. During that
time, in addition to normally high volumes, hundreds of British
students will make their annual trip to the resort.
Because Easter is late this year, their trip is coinciding with a
very busy time here, Rob Megnin director of sales, marketing and
reservations for Killington explained.
"Our greatest needs are from Tuesday the 18th through Friday, Feb.
21st," added Dave Beckwith, director of golf and snow sports for
Killington and Pico. "Staff do not need to be available for the
entire timeframe, but if they can be available for a minimum of a
couple of consecutive days, that would be helpful," he added.
The resort is hoping to hire about 60 temporary instructors to help
teach. Those who work will receive benefits including: Hourly pay
(rate will be commiserate with experience, certification, etc. in
the range of $9-$15/hour, Beckwith noted), one lift ticket voucher
for every day worked (valid through the end of the 2014-15 season),
50% food discount and eligibility to win raffle prizes.
"These programs are a lot of fun to teach and can be very rewarding
for the coach," said Beckwith. "We're not looking for a hardcore
instructor but more of a guide to help them experience as much of
the mountain as they can in a safe environment while improving
their skills along the way."
The hours are roughly from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and locals will
mostly be working with groups that are already skiing/riding green
or above terrain. The resort plans to hire the group of temporary
instructors well in advance of the work date to complete paperwork
