What our staff are saying about us...

COVID-19 Awareness


Kicking Horse Mountain Resort requires all employees to comply with daily "fit for work" COVID-19 screening, masks, social distancing and sanitizing protocols.


Our parent company RCR is fully committed to the safety of our staff, guests, and our local communities. Consequently, all staff need to be aware of the potential for further COVID-19 operational changes.

Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles are a system of beliefs that contributes to RCR’s culture. They help guide our actions and support our mission as we endeavor to be the world’s leading mountain resort operator.

Our continued success is dependent on the balance of our five Guiding Principles:

Guest Experience

They show a commitment to exceeding the expectations of every guest to our resort, ensuring they receive a warm welcome, and that they are provided with a fun, safe environment and experience. They celebrate going the extra mile, and having fun doing it. I show a commitment to what we create for others as a resort operator and am passionate about what I do.

Employee Experience

They believe that their enthusiasm and positive attitude makes this a great place to visit or to work.

They understand the terms of employment and will work to follow them.

Financial Responsibility

Taking responsibility means you and your team making the best impact you can for the financial wellbeing of the RCR group and each of the resorts.

Growth & Ingenuity

When do your seasons start and finish?

Our winter season operates from early December to mid-April; summer season runs from late May to late September.






What will I need in order to be hired?

You need to be legally entitled to work in Canada for the full duration of your contract, have a Social Insurance Number, and have arranged for your own work permit. Depending on the position, you may require a clear police check and extra certifications, such as Food Safe, Serving it Right, First Aid, Drivers License and Instructing Certificates (CSIA, CASI, PMBIA). We will also conduct pre-employment reference checks.

Do you hire international applicants?

Yes, as long as you have a valid work permit. You will be required to provide a copy or photo of your valid Canadian work permit and SIN Letter in order to commence working with us. You can speak to the Canadian Consulate in your country about obtaining a work permit for our amazing country!

Do you have staff accommodation?

No, at this stage we don’t have access to any staff housing. However, we are committed to making sure you have every resource available to you to find the perfect lodging for your time in Golden!

The town of Golden is located only 20 minutes from the Resort and has a range of accommodation opportunities. Many of the rentals are privately owned and managed, so you won’t find much on your typical real estate websites (although sometimes it’s worth looking on Kijiji or Remax Rental Properties).

To have the same opportunities as a local, join the Golden Classifieds and the Golden Homes for Rent or Sale Facebook pages. Private rooms or whole apartment rentals are posted on there for easy viewing. If you have a car then The Blaeberry Valley Apartments are always a good choice for accommodation.

If you’re looking for some short term accommodation for when you first arrive then look no further than Mary’s Motel and The Dreamcatcher Hostel. Make sure you’re aware of your rights as a tenant and read the BC Residential Tenancy Act.

Do I need a car?

In the winter season, we have a Staff Shuttle Bus that operates daily, morning and afternoon, stopping at multiple locations both in town and up at the Resort. We also promote a strong and safe carpooling game within our employee pool, motivating everyone by presenting one winner each month with a free oil change at Fountain Tire!

NEW this summer, we are pleased to announce that we will have a staff shuttle bus daily throughout the summer. All of our staff are able to use the free direct shuttles to and from work.

Living in a town surrounded by so many amazing National Parks, having access to a car is a big help in both the summer and winter months. Perhaps you and a friend want to get exploring the mountains by sharing the costs of owning a car! – why not check out the Golden BC Buy & Sell Facebook Page, Kijiji, Craigslist, or your Marketplace in Facebook.
