Kimberley Alpine Resort readies for season

Resort will be hiring lift operators, bar staff and more at job fair November 2

Is it too early to think skiing? Not according to the folks at the Kimberley Alpine Resort. Plans for the 2013-2014 season, which opens December 14, are well underway.

One of the new runs on the mountain this year is a beginner/easy way down from the top of the North Star Quad to the base. Inexperienced skiers can have difficulty with the lower mountain headwall on the Main Run, which is quite a steep pitch. Now you can avoid that on the Alpine Slide run, a new Green run.

In addition to that, Kimberley was up against Red Mountain in the first round of the  Powder Magazines 2014 Ski Town Throw Down. Kimberley Alpine Resort will also be featured in that magazine’s November edition Resort Guide.

But before the ski season begins the Resort will be looking to take on staff. They will hold their annual job fair at the Stemwinder Bar and Grill on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Resort is looking for lift operators, daycare, food and beverage servers, guest services, parking attendants and more.

Please bring your resume (complete with references) to the Job Fair, along with any other required documentation (eg. work visa/permit, SIN #).  Representatives from various departments will be on hand to talk to candidates about available jobs. Interviews will be scheduled for candidates following a successful preliminary interview process.

There are a number of Para-Alpine events coming up this winter as well as junior speed events.
