Job Description

Looking for a place where a true foodie’s soul can express itself while living and working on a mountain top?

The Chefs at Baldface Lodge experience this every shift. They’re the core of our apple and there isn’t a guest or staff member that doesn’t love and appreciate the Chefs. Up before the sun to prepare breakfast for the powder-hungry and there to create a gourmand’s dream dinner for the powder-satiated – it’s a long, but rewarding day.

This position manages kitchen operations opposite to the head Chef’s shifts.

Baldface Chefs are talented food artists that know how to grind it out in the trenches too, every night of a 7-day shift we serve 50+ guests beautifully plated meals and 24+ staff a family-style dinner. (like your mama’s if she’s a real good cook)

The Chefs manage their team with skill and the food with style, still finding time to get out the back door for a hike to the ridge or a grind on the rail located right outside that kitchen door…

The Chef provides all Baldface guests with an outstanding culinary experience. Must be innovative, have extensive knowledge of food preparation and be able to produce high-quality food at all times. Full-time commitment and flexibility are required. A dedicated team player with proven leadership skills is essential.

A complete job description will be emailed when your application is received.
