Welcome to the Loveland Family

$20/hour Minimum Pay Rate for Winter 2023/24



Look no further – the Loveland experience is like no other. We have stayed true to the sport, our guests and our employees. Our experience is simple and straight forward. Our goal is for everyone to feel at home and to become a member of the Loveland family. Come join our family and be a part of something special!


For over 80 years, Loveland has offered families a fun, friendly and hassle-free winter escape.  We want everyone who comes to Loveland to feel welcome and appreciated, part of the Loveland family, and excited to come back.  Our employees are an important part of our family.  At Loveland, you are not just an employee or a customer, you are part of the family from the moment you pull into the parking lot.

As one of the few remaining family owned ski areas, Loveland provides an authentic, uncluttered and unpretentious experience to both guests and employees.  Our owners have been our owners for over 60 years; they are involved and know many employees by name.

Our employees say that one of their favorite things about Loveland is the family feel and the life-long friends they have made here.  We know it sounds cliché . . . but we really are a family here at Loveland!  A family who is loyal, enthusiastic and passionate about Loveland, each other, our work and our play.

If you are a fun-loving, active, snowsports enthusiast who is dependable, flexible, works well with other team members, has a sense of humor, and who wants to be a part of the Loveland Family – then what are you waiting for . . .

If you don’t see the job you are looking for, please give us a call to ask.


We offer dorm-style employee housing for certain positions. To qualify for employee housing, you must meet all the following requirements:

  • Be a new employee to Loveland (having never worked for Loveland previously)
  • Have accepted a full-time winter seasonal position with Loveland
  • Be moving to Colorado from out of State or somewhere in Colorado beyond commuting distance to Loveland Ski Area

Please ask your Hiring Manager about the availability of employee housing during your interview.

If you don’t qualify for employee housing, you will need to secure your own housing.  And, we have identified some housing leads (below) which may help.

Most of our employees live in one of the small mountain towns along the I-70 corridor between Loveland and Denver, including Idaho Springs, Dumont/Downieville/Lawson, Empire, Georgetown and Silver Plume.  Others live in the western suburbs of Denver including Golden, Lakewood, and Littleton – where housing options may be more plentiful.  Our free employee shuttle between Golden and the ski area makes it easy to get to and from work from most of these locations.

To help in your search for housing, you can check with the below properties in the area who may accommodate long-term stays for employees referred from Loveland Ski Area. For rates and terms, please contact the individual properties.

Loveland is located on the major interstate (I-70) heading west into the mountains from Denver, CO.  Loveland is not located in a town so many employees will take advantage of the free employee shuttle, carpool, or you will need to provide your own transportation.

Being so close to Denver provides for an employee experience with the best of both worlds – mountain and city.  A short drive from the ski area, you can experience all that Denver has to offer including shopping, concerts, museums, theatre, major sporting events, clubs, and so much more.  And while at work, you can enjoy the serenity and beauty of the mountains, the fun and excitement of a ski area in operation, and being a member of a close knit work family.

Loveland is also only 12 miles from Summit County, CO where you can enjoy more skiing/riding, sledding, tubing, and other winter special events such as Ice Castles and International Snow Sculpting.


There is no time like the present, so check out our current openings by clicking on “Apply Here” to see what positions interest you, and then apply – it is that simple!

Come join our family this winter.

We look forward to hearing from you!
