Winter Sports Sales – Part Time

Working at Chalet

At Chalet, we believe our employees are the most valuable asset in our business. 

The Company invests a large amount of resources into training and development which helps our people become happier and more successful on the job. The local owners encourage dialogue and communication and place a high value on the ideas and suggestions which come from an experienced staff.

Ski Equipment Sales – Part Time

At Chalet, we understand the need for a work / life balance and not everyone is available to work full time. No problem. We offer flexible shifts and accommodations for family life, school and self-employment. Some of our most successful employees have been part timers who bring some great experience to the Company. For some people this job subsidizes their income and helps to level out the peaks and valleys. For others this becomes their “ fun job” and a great way to escape from the daily grind. We believe ALL employees are equally important and EVERY person on our team can contribute to our success. If you have some downhill skiing experience and enjoy working with people, this might be your dream job and a great way to share your passion for winter sports. You don’t need to be an expert skier or have a ton of experience. The most important thing we ask from part timers is to make sure they are available for our comprehensive training program. This involves lots of product clinics, fit and flex sessions, and plenty of shop talk. In addition to the text-book type training, we will also make sure you get to SKI for FREE so you can try out the gear you’d be expected to sell.
