Current Job Opportunities

We are hiring! We have openings in our forecasting team.

Avalanche Forecasters (with remote work option)

Forecasters deliver daily avalanche forecasts and other information as required for diverse and often large regions. These products provide backcountry recreationists with the information they need to identify avalanche hazards and make informed decisions about managing avalanche risk. Forecasters play an important role in raising public avalanche awareness and promoting recreational avalanche education.

We are hiring for one avalanche forecaster, with the option to work in Revelstoke or remotely for experienced applicants that meet or exceed essential qualifications. Preference for remote work may be given to applicants living near one of our regional Avalanche Canada offices in Fernie, Smithers, Prince George or Campbell River, but other locations in western Canada will also be considered. Pre-season, in person, staff training in Revelstoke will remain a requirement. The successful candidate will be available to work 80-100 days between mid November and early May.
