Default Jobs in Tahoe?

Does anyone know of any jobs that would be available in Tahoe CA? Preferably one on a slope (non instructor).

My brother is moving out there real soon and I want to help him find a job, hes a skier () does anyone know of any resorts that would be hiring seasonally or year round as like a cafeteria guy or rentals or some shit?

Yeah, all of them do in winter. Lifties, rental shops, etc. Right now the best picken's are probably wait staff, road construction, maybe home construction, etc. On the Nevada side of the lake there are all the Casino's. I am sure they are hiring for various jobs frequently.

most resort jobs dont pay shit. you will be lucky to pay rent in your shithole apartment with 3 other roommates. the free pass is the only plus. tell him to get a real job and then a PT job on the mountain or something.

Don't forget that Heavenly and some of the others (I think Northstar is one) also run mountain biking in the summer, which means (while not as much as during winter) they do still need staff at the resorts, including lifties and lodge employees. Can't remember if they do bike rentals or not, but maybe... So there might be some openings in the resort field if that's where he wants to go. I'd be willing to wager the most money for an entry level job is gonna be in construction this time of year. I know a lot of people that live up where I usually go (Dodge Ridge, a couple hours south of tahoe) A lot of the kids who just work at the resorts in the winter work at campgrounds and the marina at the lake up there, so you could try those seasonal jobs. Seems like the best idea though is to do as TJ says, get a relatively regular job that is year round and then work part time at the slopes in the winter. The people I know that do that seem like the most sane of my friends that live up by Dodge.

There's a lot of rich families who pay too much to have you babysit their kid. I babysit this girl, her father paid me $75 a day, $100 if overnight, and he also paid for my gas and activities we did like waterparks or whatever. There's also people who need housesitters, so just watch a house, throw a party, and clean it up really well and rake in the cash. It also helps to know people too, my good friend was the supervisor at Boreal for instructing so he hired me and I taught for like 3 days, lol... just to get the free pass. There's always jobs available but grab them before the people from South America come in
