Employment

Imagine calling this your office

Find out for yourself why it’s pretty hard to call this work.

Unlimited skiing outside of work hours, an awesomely close-knit team, amazing perks.  A season at Norquay is to be part of our friendly crew, learn new skills, have great fun while you earn, and experience work and play on-mountain.

As we’re just a stone’s throw away from the town of Banff, you’ll be close to all the action and calling this home in no-time.  With temporary workers arriving from all parts of the world season-after-season, Banff becomes a dynamic hub for those seeking new opportunities, the chance to meet new people, and experience all parts of life in Banff National Park.

When you join the Norquay team, you join the fam.  We’re all friendly, down-to-earth types here, on hand to show our new employees the ropes ‘til they get the hang of it.  We like to enjoy our work, and make the most of being on the mountain.  It’s not surprising that so many of our employees return year after year.

Employment with Norquay means: great daily training, a staff pass, reciprocal or discounted skiing at many different resorts in western Canada, free transportation from the town of Banff to Norquay, awesome staff discounts, oh – and great staff parties.

If the thought of getting paid to spend your days here sound pretty good to you, drop us a line!
