There is a $200 damage deposit required prior to moving in. This is returned when you leave your room clean and undamaged.
Accommodation will be assigned to you upon your arrival to Blue Mountain. The locations are off site of the Resort but within 15 minutes walking distance to work. You will be expected to walk to and from your work site.

All our locations provide shared cooking facilities (oven, stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, a large common/dining area, shared bathrooms, and bedrooms both single and shared with one person are available. You will be asked for your first choice in securing a private or shared room but limited space is available so it may not be possible. Part-time employees are not eligible.
