SUTTON, November 29, 2021 – In addition to the announcement of the new starting salary at $15/hr at the mountain, Mont SUTTON is doing something new to attract potential candidates. How? By illustrating, to future employees, what their work will look like once they are hired!


The idea is to illustrate a typical day at work, to help future employees understand, through blog posts, the tasks performed on a daily basis, the reasons why employees love their work, their funny anecdotes, etc. At the beginning of the campaign, three jobs were chosen: the ski conditions reporter, a night shift snowmaking supervisor and a lift operator.


Through the eyes of Miss Météo

The first article to come out was of Jocelyne T., the ski conditions reporter. Here is an excerpt:


“[…] Our Miss Météo set up the snow assessment reporting system we still use today. She is the pro at the snow lexicon: hard, icy, crusty… she will explain the differences and assess better than anyone what to expect at higher elevations and throughout the day. […] Even retired, Jocelyne continues to work in the winter at Mont SUTTON, but for what reasons? “I like to be at the mountain early in the morning, it is now part of my routine. I arrive, I’m alone, I watch the sunrise and it’s magical. The mountain is peaceful: it’s just me and the snowflakes. Full moon mornings are by far my favorite.”

Here is an excerpt from the article about Paul S., a snow enthusiast and night owl. In addition to explaining his work, Paul speaks about what he loves about his job:


” What he likes most about his job is “the quietness of the night since there’s no one around. Also, the view from the top of chairlifts II and IV is just magnificent. On clear nights with a full moon, you can even see Montreal in the distance. […] The night snowmakers work in two teams: the summit crew and the base crew. The base crew operates the lifts to get the summit crew up the mountain. Until midnight at the latest, it’s what we call the “big move” during which all snowmakers work at positioning snowguns and preparing the equipment according to the snowmaking plans for the night. […] As for the base crew, they check the snowguns at the bottom of the slopes and make sure the pumps and compressors are working properly.

Through the eyes of a lift operator

Janis J. has been with the Mont SUTTON team for almost 17 years. Part of her day normally goes like this:


“As skiers and snowboarders, what we make sure of when we get on or off the chairlift is that we don’t fall and thus give a show to those around us. Janis has the same priority as you: “I spend my day greeting clients and helping them. I watch them as they sit on the chair and hope to spot any potential problem before it happens. That way, I can intervene accordingly.” So, being alert is important in her work environment. At any time, when necessary, she just has to press the stop button… It gives people time to get into the right position on the chair or pick up the ski pole they dropped before starting the lift again!”

In addition to the blog posts on the website, Mont SUTTON has also increased its presence on social networks with beautiful pictures of the environment and employees at work. The weeks preceding the beginning of the hiring campaign, there were publications, announcing the different positions still available, every day. Even the marketing intern improvised herself as a journalist for a day by publishing an article showing, among other things, how much she loves the atmosphere at the mountain. What is beautiful in this whole campaign is that the pleasure of working with peers can definitely be felt, it is understandable why there are so many passionate employees at Mont SUTTON and it is surprising to find out how many different job opportunities can be found at the mountain.
