Ski Lodge Custodian

Pay: All food and accommodation equating to an hourly rate of $23.15 or $326 per week bundled into a live in package.

Do you love the outdoors and are keen to spend the season on one of the most amazing ski fields in the North Island?

For 2024 Tukino Ski Field is a small club field based on Mount Ruapheu with three lodges only a few meters away from the bottom rope tow.  Aorangi Lodge is seeking a friendly, enthusiastic, hard-working and house-proud person to oversee the running of the lodge through the winter months.  The lodge is busy through the weekends and has a number of mid-week school groups that stay throughout the season.  The club accommodates 32 bunks in 6 rooms.

The period of contract is from late July (once there is a good base on the mountain) through until October (if the snow stays) subject to snow conditions. On average you would work 1-2 hours per day depending on if the lodge is occupied. This equates to food, internet, room, power and ski pass in return as a package working out to  what would be $326 for 14 hours work or $23.15 per hour if broken down into an hourly wage.

Custodial work involves overall management and accountability for the smooth operation of the Club during the season with input from the Club management committee. Specific tasks include,

Rostering duties for members to complete during their stay and ensuring duties are completed to an acceptable standard and by the allocated time.
Monitoring stock levels, ordering supplies during the season and arranging delivery to the club.
Reporting maintenance issues and carrying out some maintenance as skills permit.

Turning the generator on and off for power supply when needed each day (you will be trained in this).
Ensuring health and safety requirements are being met and upholding the Club operating rules.
Maintaining a friendly atmosphere at the Club through effective organisation and firm direction.
The position is live-in and includes all meals as a package in return of hours worked, private room, a season pass, time off that allows for some flexibility, and full use of the Club facilities. 

There may be an opportunity for some further paid employment through the season by the skifield at $23.15 per hour by working in the ticket office and helping on the ski field with school groups.

You do need to have skied or snowboarded before in order to understand the nature of this environment.
