fun and love the outdoor and athletic atmosphere
Chairlift operator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 June 2018
Open up the chairlift to bikers and walkers. Help whoever needed help with their bikes at the bottom of the chairlift and at the top making sure I get the bikes off safely. I learned how the bikes safely get on and off the chairlift. All the managers were very friendly. The work places was young, athletic and full of energy. Hardest part off the job was taking multiple bikes off at the same time and when it was raining. Most enjoyable part was talking to all the bike riders

Winsport is a great place to work, being able to do a job you love everyday feels as though you are not actually working but just hanging out with a bunch of great friends.

Other employees are generally pleasant to work with and are very passionate and committed to Winsports goals. The team has set up a very entertaining work environment but could improve on some organization.

Low pay,poor management and no real benefits
Coach (Former Employee) –  Calgary29 September 2015
Academy's management and administration is awful. Coaches spend too much time fighting with each other. The pay is the lowest in Alberta. Your better off working at one of the mountain resorts.

Not a bad place
Groundskeeper (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 June 2015
Its a good working environment if you enjoy being out doors doing work. Lots of manual labor so its a good work out especially during the summer. Winter there wasn't much but still demanding. Staff are all friendly but change often and most of either finishing high school or from overseas coming to work. Mangers and supervisors are strict but fair. If you do your work and not slack off and show that your making an effort they will defiantly take notice and will be rewarded hard works.
Pros
chances of finishing early, longer breaks
Cons
really hot weather, rainy weather, or freezing depending on season

Accounting (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 May 2015
My manager was awesome, but not all management is awesome at Winsport. Lots of fun, lots of hard work and rewards for a job well done. I kind of wish I'd never left.
Pros
Fun perks if you're sporty.
Cons
Non profit pay and benefits package is less than stellar.

A great place to learn the definition of "Responsibility!"
Lift Operator (Winter Term Only) (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 February 2015
A day at WinSport is like no other, it's never the same! One day you could be shovelling some beautiful snow steps and the other you could be riding on a chairlift with non other than Shaun White!

I highly recommend working at WinSport if you love the outdoors, physical activity and of course meeting famous athletes!
