Hiring for 2019-20 Winter Seasonal Positions!

The Arizona Nordic Village (ANV) is seeking to hire multiple part-time, seasonal positions for the winter season, including:

  • Cross country ski instructors (experience req’d)
  • Groomer (snowcat grooming or heavy machine operation experience req’d)
  • General winter staff – see description below.

ANV is a year-round outdoor destination that hosts events, yurt and cabin camping, and trails. These positions support cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fatbiking, and lodging/accommodations  at ANV. The winter season is officially November 12th to March 29th, though we depend on natural snowfall and work availability will be contingent on snow. The ideal candidate is a generalist with a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn and work hard.
