Blue Mountain Resorts Raises Starting Wages Above Provincial Minimum


THE BLUE MOUNTAINS, Ont. — On the heels of the province’s commitment to increase minimum wages, Blue Mountain Resort announced hourly wage hikes starting at $16.50. Currently, the resort has 500 available positions for the upcoming ski season.

“We have always exceeded minimum hourly-wage guidelines,” says Dan Skelton, president and COO of Blue Mountain Resort. “This change amounts to a $1-million investment in our employees. We do our very best to balance the needs of all stakeholders when it comes to ensuring competitive compensation and we feel that an increase right now will not only assist our current employees but also help us in recruiting the people we need to join our team this winter.”

“We’ve also created a flexible schedule with caregivers in mind,” says Lesley Biffin, vice-president of Human Resources at Blue Mountain Resort. “We understand that work schedules need to align with other daily schedules including school hours, and have prioritized this is preparation for the ski season. Our hope is that working at Blue Mountain is a choice that community members feel proud of and one that works best for their livelihood.”
