Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area keeps transforming itself into a full-time, year-round destination for fun.

The popular ski area is looking to hire up to 65 people to work part-time and fulltime summer jobs, according to a press release. You must be 16 years old to apply.

“We do get a lot of returning employees from the winter season,” Bogus Basin Human Resources Generalist Lisa Ogilvy told the Statesman on Friday. “We have a range as far as age goes, but there are a lot of high school, as well as college students, looking to earn some extra cash in the summer.”

Bogus Basin began weekend-only summer operations in 2017, and then went to seven days a week in 2018. An estimated 100,000 people visited last summer.

This year, weekend operations will begin May 25 and seven-day operations will start June 21.

They’re hiring people to do ticketing and to help out those riding the Mountain Coaster, as well as those participating in rock climbing, summer tubing and bungee jumping.

“We’re also hiring for some food and beverage jobs,” Ogilvy said.

Some of the perks of working at Bogus: free transportation to the site, discounts on food and beverages, and free summer season passes.
