Snow School Applications currently CLOSED - posted July 24th 2016

We commence the recruitment process for Snow School in August and continue through to October with most employees starting in November and December. There is certain information that you will be required to provide during the application process:

  • Copy of your resume with cover letter
  • At least 2 work related references, preferably with email addresses (especially for international applicants)
  • Your work visa and passport (international applicants)
  • Original copies of any certification, (they will be photocopied and returned during the interview)
  • All applicants applying for an Instructor position are required to provide a "vulnerable sector" police record check. (International applicants should obtain an equivalent police check before leaving their home country) It must be dated within the last 18 months.

Due to limited supply the Lake Louise Ski Resort will unfortunately NOT be accepting applicants requiring sponsorship for the upcoming winter season. In order to be considered as a new hire you must have your own open work visa without a letter of offer.

While it is always great to see an applicant in person, we recognize that it is costly to travel to and stay in Lake Louise whilst going through the application process. We are very happy to arrange a telephone interview with applicants who have the credentials we are seeking.

We do recognize most Foreign Certifications as long as they are recognized by the ISIA (International Ski Instructors Association). Since different Countries have different standards and level structures, we evaluate and compare each Countries system and then determine its CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructors Association) equivalency. 

Some common certifications:

  • APSI (Australian Professional Snowsports Instructor) Level 1 = CSIA Level 2
  • NZSIA (New Zealand Ski Instructors Association) Level 1 = CSIA Level 2

Note: If your Certification is recognized by the ISIA as an International Certification and you have an ISIA stamp on your Certification Card, then you will be granted CSIA Level 3.

Please keep checking our website for when applications for our Snow School positions are OPEN. All opportunities will be advertised under this Winter Employment section.



Winter Applications currently CLOSED - posted July 24th 2016

For Winter employment, we commence the recruitment process around August/September and have most employees start work between November & December depending the position. Once the recruitment process commences, we will advertise winter vacancies on our website and candidates can apply directly online by submitting their tailored cover letter and resume.

All international employees are required to obtain a work visa to be employed at the resort. We do not consider international applicants for employment unless they have either been issued with their port of entry letter or are in the final stages of receiving approval.

We do not conduct Skype or phone interviews for our general positions, therefore you will need to attend one of the many recruitment fairs that the ski resort partakes in during September and October. The recruitment fairs take place in both Alberta, Eastern Canada and more locally in Banff and surrounding areas.

The LLSR will be partaking in recruitment fairs across eastern Canada during the month of September and will be conducting interviews in the following cities for the 2016/2017 winter season. Date will be announced on our website in August. We will accept applications for our Recruitment Fairs from early August.

Edmonton, AB - September 11th
Saskatoon, SK - September 13th

Waterloo, ON

Toronto, ON - TBC

Barrie, ON - TBC

St. Catharines, ON - TBC

We will also be participating in the Job Resource Centre Ski Hiring Fair in Banff in early October, 2016.

The Lake Louise Ski Resort does offer staff accommodation to all full time employees. The accommodation is subsidized and shared. You would be living with potentially 5-7 other employees. All employees hired in entry level positions are assigned to shared rooms. To view pictures of our main accommodation, please visit the skilouise website and follow the links to the employment section. Rent is automatically deducted every pay period and is between $10.00-$13.00 per night. A $200.00 damage deposit is also required upon check in. Majority of entry level positions are minimum wage and start at $12.20/hour for the winter season.
