Heavenly Ski and Ride School

Ski and Ride School Jobs

Heavenly is one of the largest ski resort on the west coast of the United States and offers an ideal combination of heavy snowfall and sunshine. The mountain is based in the town of South Lake Tahoe, which is a year-round tourist destination - there is a lot more to the town than just skiing and riding. Many people come for the winter and end up staying for life.

The ski resort has unbeatable views of Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the desert valley in Nevada making it one of the most scenic resorts in the country. The normally heavy snowfall and well spaced trees combine to provide some of the best tree skiing and riding anywhere in the world.

Building on these natural attributes Heavenly Ski and Ride School employees are in a unique position to influence our guests and employees on and off the mountain. Our department is one of many departments that work as a team to achieve ultimate guest satisfaction. We have the rare opportunity to make already happy guests even happier during their time at Heavenly with the Ski and Ride School.
