And lastly, Vail’s Training Program is looking for a group of people to pilot a new training/learning program. We need approximately 50 people to pilot a new training and development platform that will create easier access for training for those that live out of the valley and create an uptick in value for the guests we instruct. We are in need of people representing all disciplines (Alpine, Snowboard, Adaptive and Telemark) and all statuses (Part Time/Full Time). If you have interest in being a part of a Pilot Training Program, please email Mraymond@vailresorts.com or Kcaples@vailresorts.com so we can generate a list of interested folks and send out more information.
