Good but stressful workplace
it almost feels like a lifestyle at some points, the job gets very stressful and the staff isnt composed they will lose their cool and explode. management sucks they schedule poorly and their is no chance of sick days, you will be expected to prep food AND cook while sick.

Keep your rose tinted glasses on and you'll have a fun time. Only stay for one season.
I worked at Mount Washington Alpine Resort for several years, both summer and winter. I thoroughly enjoyed my first season, but I believe I was just not aware of what was going on. Upper management is an absolute joke. Washy was sold to Vail Resorts a few years back and the corporate side of things became very obvious very quickly. They care about making money and not much else. Where there was once fun to be had working on a mountain is an amazing environment, feels like everywhere else. Identical uniforms, no charm, no uniqueness to be seen anywhere. You aren't even allowed to wear your own toque. Employees feel so expendable and if you aren't past your probation period, you can be fired at the drop of a hat. You have to fight tooth and nail to get a raise. I came back for a third season and recieved an extra 25¢, and eventually got another 25¢ raise for a promotion after bothering my boss about it for a month and a half. They want their employees to return but do nothing to show it or give much incentive. Getting to work in the winter wasn't too bad as there's a free bus for employees but sometimes in the morning the buses would be jam packed with guests and you wouldn't be able to get to work on time. (They may have changed the rules on that one, however.) Lift operations management is... alright. It seems at times that they don't know what they're doing so it can get really chaotic, but I do believe they're all trying their best. They're genuinely an amazing bunch of people running the team, but it can feel very clique-y. Working just one season on the mountain is really fun and you can keep your rose tinted glasses on and not have to see the ugly side of Washy. If you stay much longer than that, you'll see through the fun exterior. There are many on-location benefits to take advantage of such as a lift pass, free ski/snowboard rentals, free group lessons, 40% off clothes with the Mt Washington logo and 25% off in the store, free coffee/tea/hot chocolate. During the winter there's quite a bit of labour involved from digging in the maze gates with a pick axe, shoveling snow, raking the ramp, and bumping chairs. You'll also get some guests that you're amazed managed to get dressed on their own and will deliberately do the exact opposite of what you just told them 3 times. (It's incredible, truly.) All in all, I give Washy a 2/5. There was good times and bad times. I made some really awesome friends, had some wonderful bosses, learned how to ski, and generally had fun. But don't stay longer than one season if you're not interested in a mess of a company.

Worst treatment ever
Do not give this resort your money. I worked here for 2 years and gave them 150% effort for minimum wage and i was treated very unfairly and not respected the way i deserve. The management gives the bike park trail crew barely enough budget to keep the trails from falling apart let alone build enough actually good new trails. They do not care about the bike park very much and they certainly only care about making money off of rich tourist families. I used to love this resort but in the last few years my experiences have cause me to extremely dislike it. It is unfourtunate that this is the main alpine resort on the Island because they do not deserve your money. Try to spend your money somewhere else becasuse you will be wasteing it here.😢

Overall summary
I really enjoyed working on Mount Washington it was a great business and I had a lot of fun along the way, they’re easy going but also strict, they’ll make sure you’re at work on time and make sure you’re doing your job correct overall it’s a great beginner job that I recommend for anyone that likes lighter rules but a steady workplace

Fun environment
The mountain is always a super fun and exciting place to work. The management is positive and have no problems teaching you how to do it right , they go “above and beyond”
