Since the 1930’s Sun Valley has captured the imaginations and spurred the adventures of employees and guests alike. Be careful though because many come for a season but stay for a lifetime!

While the resort is fully operational year-round, we have two distinct peak seasons. Our summer season typically begins early to mid-June and runs through the beginning of October while our winter season kicks-off at the end of November and continues through the beginning-middle of April. So regardless of whether you are just looking for a seasonal position or you are looking for a place to put down roots, we have opportunities for you!

We are looking for folks who are HUNGRY, HUMBLE, and SMART. 

HUNGRY: Are you happy where you are or do you push yourself outside of your comfort zone to improve?

HUMBLE: Are you a team player willing to jump in and help with any position in your department when necessary or is that “not your job”?

SMART: Do you educate yourself and keep up on the trends in your industry? Do you recognize and appreciate the talents, skills, and abilities of your co-workers and team members?

Additionally, if you value:

  • Fun
  • Pride
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Teamwork
  • Professionalism
  • Commitment to Safety

Then a position with us at Sun Valley may just be a perfect fit!
