We work and play in Canada’s most beautiful playground, Banff National Park, and you can too. Sunshine Village is the premier ski resort in Western Canada.

What’s in it for you?
- A ridiculously cool life experience
- Free access to Sunshine Village for the length of your employment. Your staff pass is your ticket to ride!
- Marvelous discounts on ski gear, food & drinks and transportation.
What can you expect?
The Gondola ride lasts around 17 minutes and stretches over 5 km up the mountain, transporting guests from the parking area to the Village. Gondola Operators scan lift passes and safely load/unload guests and their equipment from the gondola cabins in a fast-paced environment. Answering guest queries and moving freight on and off the cabins is an integral part of this position. This is a physically demanding position requiring manual labour, heavy lifting, and primarily operates outside.
This job might be right for you if you think you would enjoy:
- Greeting guests and sharing your knowledge about our awesome resort.
- Helping guests with their equipment and assisting guests to load onto the gondola safely.
- In peak periods, displaying and maintaining orderly traffic conditions.
- Moving freight on and off the Gondola.
- Being a lean, mean, snow removing machine.
- The great outdoors presents a variety of weather conditions. Be prepared for anything!
- Previous guest service experience and/or manual labor experience is an asset.
- You love interacting with people and have a positive, engaging and friendly attitude.
- It would be a great asset if you’re a competent skier or snowboarder, but this isn’t required to be a Gondola Operator.
- If you’re a competent skier or snowboard, or excited to learn, you should possess your own ski or snowboarding equipment or be willing to buy it on arrival.
- You’re able to execute and adhere to tasks with respect to company policies and procedures.
