Quick-staffed ski resorts facing uphill struggle as year nears

Ski hills in the Ottawa-Gatineau area say they’re even now shorter on team as their busiest year methods. 

“We are generally hunting for new folks,” Camp Fortune’s François Bernier explained to Radio-Canada in a French-language job interview. 

Ski resorts throughout the state are reporting comparable staffing shortages.

Bernier mentioned Camp Fortune, in close proximity to Chelsea, Que., has experienced to regulate about the study course of the pandemic.

“There was no just one in the kitchen, the cafeteria was not open up [and] the ski college was functioning in a unique way,” he reported.

Camp Fortune held a position good more than the weekend in an attempt to fill vacancies in the resort’s rental and retail outlets, kitchen and customer service place. The hill is also in search of snow makers, chairlift attendants, mechanics and cleansing staff members.

Mont Cascades in Cantley, Que., produced a similar attractiveness in late Oct. 


At Calabogie Peaks Resort, west of Ottawa, chief running officer Jim Hemlin said recruitment is heading as very well as can be envisioned.

“We are in as superior of condition as we can be,” he explained. “It could normally be better.”

While Calabogie has in the past relied mainly on worldwide hires, notably Australians, Hemlin explained about 70 for each cent of its new employees are locals.

“[It was] a great deal of HR operate, but I consider we are heading to be Alright,” he reported.
