H-2B Visa Applicants (non-students)

Due to government regulations, we are unable to accept H2B Visa applicants at this time.

J-1 Visa Applicants (students)

At this time, the only visa that is accepted at Mammoth Mountain is the Summer & Work Travel Visa (J-1). It permits the applicant to work for a period of 4 months, and allows for 1 month of travel at the end (total of 5 months). Applicants from New Zealand and Australia may be eligible for a J1 Visa that allows work eligibility for a period of up to 12 months.

Mammoth Resorts is interested in applicants who are available to work full-time during our winter ski season, no sooner than from mid-December through late April. Visas must commence with a mid-December start date to be considered for employment at our resort.

In order to be eligible for a J-1 visa you must either be currently enrolled in full time study at a recognized tertiary level institute (having completed two consecutive semesters before going to the USA) or a recent graduate from at least 12 months (two consecutive semesters) of full time study.

This type of visa must be secured via a third party sponsoring body. Mammoth Resorts currently works most closely with two organizations that assist applicants obtaining the J-1 visa: CCUSA and CIEE. These agencies will charge a fee for their service. Applicants should contact them if they wish to obtain a J-1 visa.
