We operate Sperry Chalet with a crew of eight to nine people; cook's, baker's, waitpeople, housekeepers, dishwashers, etc., who live and work at Sperry Chalet for the entire ten week season; the end of June to mid September.
The work is hard and the living conditions are unique. There will be no electricity, no cars, no TV, no mall, no Internet, no time 'down the mountain'. Just rocks and snow and animals and insects and birds and sun and rain and wind and mountain air, great food, spectacular 'backyard' with plenty of hiking opportunities, and a paycheck and lots of memories at the end of it.
If all of this appeals to you,send for our application, we'd be happy to hear from you.
Before submitting your application, there are four basic requirements for employment that must be met:
- You must be at least 18 years old by date of employment.
- The 2023 summer work season is from the last week of June to September 12th, inclusive. You must be able to work the complete season. (Ten plus weeks.)
- You must be willing to live and work for ten straight weeks 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.
- 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, etc. It's a long, rough trip from the chalets to the nearest medical facility.
Also, no alcoholic beverages or nonprescribed drugs allowed. We mean it! If you can't survive for eleven weeks without 'chemical' support do not apply!
We are now accepting applications for the 2023 season.
