Rentals & Repairs Supervisors and Director of Skiing

Position Overview

Within the Rentals Department there can be a lot of movement between the two job positions. Each position will be discussed below.

Rental Attendants work within the Rental Department and are primarily responsible for greeting customers, assisting with filling out waivers, retrieving ski or snowboard boots for customers, and setting up skis and snowboards. Each rental attendant will be trained for each step of the rental process and will be Certified by Tyrolia to set DINs and boot sole lengths on skis safely. As Marmot Basin offers online and over the phone rental reservations, attendants are also trained to set-up equipment ahead of time for guests.

Rental Sale Associates work within the Rental Department and are primarily responsible for greeting customers, processing waivers, taking payment, handling cash, answering phones, answering emails, and taking care of the Lost & Found.

These are both full-time and part-time seasonal roles running from November through May.

The candidates should expect to work in a fast-paced environment sometimes requiring heavy lifting.

Alberta Employment Standards regarding probationary periods apply.

A Day in the Life of a Rental Attendant

Upon arrival to Marmot Basin at 7:45AM on the staff shuttle, you will head into the Rental/Snow Sports School/Group Sales Department to begin your shift. After putting your belongings away, the supervisors will discuss where each employee will be stationed (greeter, waivers, boots, DIN benches), new news to share, and check in with everyone. Afterwards, the first task of the day is putting equipment from the previous day back to their correct spots. This includes boots, skis, boards, helmets, and poles. Once completed, each employee will go to their designated spot as the shop opens at 8AM. Each task is broken down as follows:

Greeter: positioned at the door.

(Continuation of Day in the Life…)

Your break can include a “ride break” where you are able to head out to ski or board for your allotted time. You can bring your own lunch or order food upstairs with Food & Beverage which you get a 30% discount on.

Towards the end of the day, rental returns will be coming in and it is your job, along with a team of others, to successfully return items in the system, sanitize the equipment, and put it away in the appropriate spots. It is important during this time for you to constantly sanitize your hands and be aware that the equipment has been used all day.

The day ends at 5PM, when each staff member will get onto a shuttle that leaves at 5:05PM to take them back to their accommodation to enjoy the rest of their evening in Jasper!
