Monday, 7 August 2023
Are you fuelled by a passion for the outdoors? Is there something indescribable that draws you to the mountains? Let’s chat. Joining our crew is more than just working at a ski field - it’s a lifestyle, seasonal work is a rollercoaster but it’s one that creates lasting memories that you’ll talk about for a lifetime.

Our NZSki community has been growing since 1947 and continues to offer the best experience for our crew, locals, and guests alike. Everyone at Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Mt Hutt cares for the mountains and shares a passion for snowsports and the surrounding regions. Our success is due to our awesome customer service, first-class facilities, majestic scenery, and wild terrain.

Skiers and boarders will depart Coronet Peak, and that’s when our mountain bikers and hikers arrive. We aim to give them the best experience on our mountain!

This summer season, we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people who are not afraid of a little hard work, in return for some fun times in one of the best offices in New Zealand. You could be swingling a lift chair, a shovel, a cup of coffee and driving a bike shuttle, that’s all in a week's work.

This role will commence in early December and run until April 2024.

The role will include (but is not limited too): 

  • Chair lift operations including operating lift machinery, meeting, and greeting all guests who ride a chairlift.
  • Lift and event queue management
  • Maintaining mountain bike trails
  • Parking cars and other car park duties
  • Food handling, coffee making, and preparation of menu items and ski area cuisine.
  • Ability to make multitasking appear effortless.
  • Stock control and planning for variances in trading to minimisation wastage
  • Frontline guest service including selling products and general guest questions.
  • Selling retail products  
  • Trail Safety to actively ensure the safety of guests and staff mountain biking on ski area terrain.
  • Shuttle driving including assist with bus loading of guests and bikes (P license required).
