If you’re a skier or boarder, you know lift tickets can be pretty expensive.

But if you become a member of Liftopia’s team, you can support your hobby this season with a substantial hourly wage.

If you’ve ever bought lift tickets online, you might have used Liftopia. The ecommerce site is the largest seller of lift tickets and a great pricing tool for ski resorts.

The company is growing quickly, and now it’s looking for a remote seasonal partner operations representative for the 2017-2018 winter season, which runs from September to April, depending on Mother Nature.

What You’ll Do as Work-From-Home Rep for Liftopia

Although Liftopia is in the business of snow, with this full-time gig, you can work shoreside in San Francisco or — even better — from home.

You’ll support the Partner Operations Team and manage phone and ticket queues. You’ll also handle some data: audit systems, handle ticket barcodes, reload ticket inventory, upload inventory and process resort closures — to name a few of your tasks.

During the season, you’ll work three to five shifts a week, which run five to six hours on weekdays and four to five hours on weekends. Either way, you won’t exceed 30 hours a week. You will, however, have to work holidays and weekends.

Note: You’ll be expected to start between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. PST, so consider the time difference if you’re over here on the East Coast like us.

Liftopia Benefits — Including Lift Ticket Deals!

First and foremost: You’ll make $17 an hour. In addition, you’ll get deals on lift tickets and receive “sweet Liftopia swag.”

If you’re based in San Francisco, great. You’ll become part of a casual, dog-friendly office environment that features Wednesday afternoon socials.

If not, you can opt to work from home in flannel pajamas in your favorite ski town.

Are You Qualified For This Work-From-Home Gig?

Liftopia seeks people who have two or more years of experience in customer service, hospitality or account management support.

You should be a strong writer and verbal communicator, and you need experience in building solid client relationships. (Tip: A sense of humor goes a long way). The company also wants you to have troubleshooting and analytical skills, which will help you roll with any glitches or changes.

So if you’re passionate about skiing, have solid customer service skills and want to work from home, check out the full job description and apply to this opportunity today — before the snow blows in.
