Kokanee Mountain Zipline has completed hiring for the 2017 season but we will keep applicants resumes on file if a position becomes available. Hiring for our 2018 season will start in February 2018.
Successful candidates are people who enjoy working in a fast-paced, fun, professional, and team-oriented work environment. Our zipline season is from May-October, however, some positions start in June and end after September long weekend. Shifts are conducted at our zipline site, which is located 25 minutes from Nelson, so own transportation is a MUST for all employees. Because our zipline season is short and fast paced, minimal time off will be given in July and August. The majority of work is conducted outdoors in climates from -5 degrees to +40 degrees. We zip rain or shine.
