Employment Opportunities

In the 2019 season we will be working in support of the Sperry Chalet Restoration Project providing meal service for construction crews as well as providing respite, food and information to the visiting public. We will be facing many of the challenges that come with working in a backcountry wilderness and addressing the new challenges surrounding the future of service at Sperry Chalet.

While providing restoration support we will be looking for employees that have exceptional work ethic, experience with kitchens and food service, and can show compassionate care for this National Park property.

Work hitches are available either short or long term. Highly responsible people with good kitchen experience are eligible for long term hitches up to 12 weeks. Entry level workers are eligible for rotating hitches of one or two weeks. This can be an ideal opportunity for people with only a brief time available for work during the summer season.

If you can see yourself working hard and contributing to Sperry Chalet this summer we'd be happy to hear from you.

Before submitting your application, there are basic requirements for employment that must be met:

  1. You must be at least 18 years old by date of employment.
  2. You must be willing to live and work for the entire hitch under primitive conditions in a wilderness area reached only by trails, and not have a full day off or be permitted to be absent from the chalet overnight.
  3. You must be fit for this employment; no physical, mental or medical disabilities that would or could cause you and your employer undue hardship in this remote wilderness situation. Things like high blood pressure or heart trouble, (chalet elevations are over 6500 feet); thyroid trouble, epilepsy, anemia, back trouble, pregnancies, etc. It's a long, rough trip from the chalets to the nearest medical facility.

Also, no alcoholic beverages or nonprescribed drugs allowed. We damn well mean it! If you can't survive without 'chemical' support do not apply!
