I recently graduated from Mechanical Engineering technologist program, Id like to work at a ski resort this winter and was wondering if any types of jobs that would put these skills or prefer these types of skills exist on a ski resort for the maintenance department.
Yeah, washing dishes.
Pretty sure any engineering that is needed at a ski resort is well and truely taken care of by the time they open. So suck it up and do the work thats available.
Im moving to japan at start of next season and I just took a job as a general hand at a lodge, clearing snow, changing beds and washing up is probably what I will be doing but who cares, Ill get to ride all day.
Given that you're a "technologist" yeah you could get a job doing something like "lift operation" or "mtn ops" doing the day to day repairs and maintenance on the lifts. You can also work as a cat driver doing overnight grooming.
If you aren't afraid to wrench on stuff and are competent, and will follow directions and have good people skills they can use you. The few people I have talked to loved it. Ask around town too though, I have heard of some opportunities there some places.
