Utah Ski Industry and National Labor Shortage

Utah has had a very wet October. The snowpack is above normal and all major Utah ski resorts are slated to open in late November. At the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird and Alta are slated to open Nov. 20, 2021. The team at UtahState.com has great deals on Utah ski trips. Visit UtahState.com

Across the board, most resorts are still hiring for all sorts of positions: ski patrol, rental technicians, line cooks, building maintenance, wait staff, lift operations — Sundance Resort even has a listing for a “blower of recycled glass”

“We’ve certainly opened before with less,” said Brandon Ott, marketing manager, who said the resort could bump up its opening date a few days, “but we couldn’t open tomorrow, we couldn’t open next week. Because of staffing, and also because of supply chain issues.” Call the ski desk at UtahState.com at 801-544-1800 for all your Utah ski needs. We are #1 for Utah ski vacations. 

“Just about any job you could possibly think of on the ski hill is going to be open,” said Alison Palmintere, director of communications for Ski Utah. For the Snowbird ski package this is it. For discount Snowbird lift tickets this is where you can find the lowest prices. 

Snowbird is “hiring in almost every department right now,” said Sarah Sherman, communications manager. And both Deer Valley and Alta have openings, especially in their food and beverage departments. www.UtahState.com in Layton Utah. Call 801-544-1800.
