Ski resort spread over four mountains

Location: Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado
Number of Employees: 1,200
Digs: Offices vary across the mountain, anything from ski patrol huts to offices next to the gondola.
Culture: With so many employees, it’s hard to stereotype, but most employees probably consider the surrounding outdoors as their own private gym—and treat the mountains as such. Company bicycles help employees commute between meetings and long lunch breaks are good for a quick afternoon hike, run, or lap on the mountain. Also cool, Aspen/Snowmass recently bought rights to the regional methane to convert it to electricity, offsetting 100 percent of company’s annual electrical usage.
Sweet Perks: The backyard is a playground and the company, when it can, provides hall passes for big powder days and, of course, free ski passes.
Now Hiring: Communications coordinator, as well as open positions in guest services, rental, retail, and ski school
