Working for CBMR

Working for CBMR

Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) fits perfectly into the town of Crested Butte - we're family owned and operated and focus on staying true to our small town roots.

What We're Looking For in an Employee

We're looking for guest-focused employees who share our passions, who want to work as a team, both in the resort and the community. Living and working in the Rockies, particularly in the Gunnison Valley, is a lifestyle. We're passionate about our mountain lifestyle, both recreation and work. If you're looking for a job where your co-workers are happy to come to work and are even happier if they have 4 feet of snow to shovel, this may be the place for you.

As a team, we work together to inspire a passion for adventure in our guests. We rely on each and every employee to make genuine, fulfilling connections with our guests by sharing our mountain lifestyle.

The Best Fit

CBMR has many functions - we operate the ski mountain with lifts, ski patrol, ski school, snowmaking, grooming and other on-mountain departments. We run restaurants - both on-mountain and in our hotels and lodging properties, fine dining, casual dining, cafeteria style and specialty banquets. Additionally, we operate three full-service hotels and a property management business. Then we have all of the behind-the-scenes functions of administration, accounting, vehicle maintenance, lift maintenance, property maintenance and housekeeping, to name a few. With all these different departments, jobs available differ widely. When applying for jobs, consider some of the following so that we end up with the best fit for both you and CBMR:

  • Do you enjoy being outside or inside? 
  • Do you enjoy interacting with people, or prefer to work alone? 
  • Do you want to work days? Nights? Swing shift? Full-time or part-time? 
  • Do you have specific skills or talents you hope to use?


As a destination resort, CBMR tends to be busiest when our guests have time off from work and school - Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, President’s Week, and Spring Break, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day. Since we work as a team, employees are expected to be available to work during all holiday periods. Just think about what a great time it is for your friends and family to come out and visit you in Colorado!
