Product Sales & Call Center Agent
(aka Mountain Info Agent)

Department Overview:

The Mountain Information & Activities Agent is a highly visible, professional position which offers support to staff and guests. Mountain Information agents strive to be the most knowledgeable and skilled staff members at the resort.

This team works with almost every department across the mountain and is a resource for all other employees. This team is growing and throughout the season we are eager to find more opportunities to assist staff and guests.

The Mountain Information team is made up of about twenty staff members and falls within the umbrella of our larger Product Sales & Services team. We are a unique team that offers a dynamic, varied work environment with opportunity for development within the company and summer seasonal positions. Summer positions are June – mid September. This is a great position for starting out in the travel and leisure industry or for honing guest service skills in a new environment.

What does the Mountain Information team do?

We staff a call center which helps answer guest questions before, during, and after their vacations and assist in making reservations and providing general mountain information. We also staff a sales location at the Peak 8 base area which specializes in private lessons and lift tickets/season pass sales. Staff is expected to help every guest and employee who they come into contact with whether over the phone, via email, or in person. Agents are knowledgeable about all aspects of the ski resort and the town of Breckenridge.

We utilize customer manager, Guest Connect, data capture, call tracker, SharePoint, PeopleSoft, Microsoft Office, and other minor applications.

Who Do We Hire?

We are looking for team members who are passionate about Breckenridge, skiing/ snowboarding, the mountains, and offering our guests an experience of a lifetime. Ideal candidates have two plus years of guest service experience in a high end hospitality, activity, or retail environment. Team members must possess a strong moral compass, the ability to learn and react quickly to changing situations, a focused and efficient attention to detail, and the ability to take initiative in their job performance. They are articulate, well spoken, and present themselves professionally. We do hire candidates with different types of work experience and education if they demonstrate through their application and interview the ability to be successful in our work environment.
