In an effort to attract new talent to the Vail Resorts team, Keystone and Breckenridge ski resorts are hosting a hiring event in Summit County.

The event takes place from noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Keystone Conference Center, 0633 Tennis Club Road in Dillon, and would provide job seekers with more information about full- and part-time opportunities within Vail Resorts.

Specifically, Vail Resorts is looking to fill openings in the on-mountain, in hospitality, retail, rental and transportation sectors of the company. Eligible candidates can expect much more than just a paycheck and a ski pass, a Vail Resorts news release stated, including competitive benefits packages.

Vail Resorts also offers nontraditional benefits, the release stated, such as the ability to transfer to other resorts or business segments within the company without having to start over.
