Join our family
Great Northern is a pioneer in the snowcat industry. We've shown guests the best powder skiing of their lives since 1979. We have the highest visitor return rate in the rockies for two reasons: great snow and great people. We need hardworking energetic people to complete the backcountry experience for our guests. Adventure and the best skiing of your life awaits you at Great Northern.
Our guests are a fascinating group from around the world with diverse backgrounds – every week is a chance to meet exciting new people.
Our staff, though small, is always made up of a mix of unique characters who have a lot of fun together.
While we can never guarantee staff seats in the snowcat, if your day off happens to coincide with an empty spot, you can enjoy the best powder skiing on earth!
The “Great Northern Savings Program”
Lots of work and little opportunity to spend your paycheque means that saving for that trip overseas, or whatever else, is easier than ever!
Our lodge is set in the secluded wilderness of the Selkirk mountains — a great place for a little peace and quiet away from the madness of the city.
Despite the secluded setting, you're only 1½ hours from Revelstoke, 45 minutes from Nakusp, and 1/2 hour away from Halcyon Hot Springs, all great options for days off.
We run with a small crew around here, which means that everyone gets an opportunity to discover the inner workings of a cat skiing operation — excellent experience for anyone with aspirations in the skiing, tourism and hospitality industries.
