    I have been working at The Canyons Resort

    Pros

    Fun job and good people to work with.

    Cons

    Very low pay and the hours make it difficult to work a second job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guides need more money. Many guides love the job but can't afford to stay.

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort

    Pros

    Great health insurance options for full time employees

    Cons

    Everything else! Once Vail Resorts purchased Canyons Resort we lost lots of previous discounts, our pay scale is changing, longtime supervisors were replaced with people that were never seen or accessible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans instead of just another number!

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free ski pass, beautiful view, laid back environment, free lunch, variety of children and ages (6 weeks-6 years), sliding down a snowy hill with the kids and riding the gondola. Babysitting for guests at night or on your days off pays very well.

    Cons

    Working weekends and holiday, $10.50/hr, on-call sometimes, getting over-time hrs is very rare, getting sick (around kids)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're wonderful and really care. Communication between employee and management is always key.

    Pros

    Canyons of Old was amazing, the people the culture superseded 10 fold over Vail resorts idea of culture and values, every part of their Values- do good, do right blah blah and more blah...Vail values are empty word thats all...

    Cons

    Vail empty promises....During Transition the company made many errors that made our work&life balance very difficult. So many that when they actually had a great opportunity to do right the company decided agains it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management of old please look for a brighter place to grow....

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The skiing and the ability to be outside and not always in the office. My boss had full faith in me which was nice so I was able to give well over 100% to my job.

    Cons

    The lack of vision towards the future for some management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to think like a person who is visiting your resort from another part the country. Someone who's entire life does not revolve around skiing but for one week it might.

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free season passes and fun people to work with. For your first few years moving up is easy if you will work hard and show up on time and sober.

    Cons

    Hard to get in to upper managment, there is a good old boys network that is very tight and some depaartment managers whom dont pull their weight seem to skate by due to friendships in senior managment and lack of knolodge in senior managment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rember, to some this is a carreer not just a job for a pass.
