You must be able to present a valid work visa to be considered for employment at RED Mountain Resort. Contact the Canadian consulate nearest you for details on how to obtain a work visa.

The Canadian work visa policy is meant to ensure that Canadians have the first opportunity to apply for available jobs in Canada. When the employer demonstrates that there is a shortage of specialized workers in the position they are attempting to fill, it is only then that the employer may look outside of the country for help. Though it may be challenging for non-Canadian residents to find a job in Canada, it is not impossible. Speak with your proposed employer or a citizenship & immigration attorney about your work visa options.

The Canadian government’s work visa policy is designed to ensure that Canadian citizens get first priority when applying for work in their own country. One exception to this policy is where the Canadian workforce has a demonstrated shortage of specialized workers as Occupations Under Pressure. Visit for more information on Foreign Work Visas and Occupations Under Pressure.

Currently the Snowsports School sponsors foreign ski and snowboard instructors. Please note that there is a limited number of visas for instructors. Contact each department separately to see if they will sponsor you.

RED Mountain Resort and the United Steelworkers Local 9705 have a collective agreement that states preference is given to hiring local persons who reside in the area before hiring from outside the area.

Senior staff has priority for returning to their positions and to new positions. Their recall date is the first weekday of September, after this time we actively hire for any available positions. Please note that we will only contact successful candidates.

RED’s season will start early to mid December, weather permitting and closes the first Monday of April. Where applicable, pre-season job training would take place in late November or early December. These times can vary by a week or two depending on snow conditions.

There is a free shuttle that runs between RED and Rossland and public transit that travels to points beyond.
