The Grand Tetons is a great place to work and definitely worth checking out. Jackson Lake Lodge and Signal Mountain Lodge are a good place to start. I have done 7 seasons in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and love it! Planning on heading back summer '09.
......Sorry, just read below, and I'm one of the ones refusing to grow up! I Love my lifestyle, why stop?!

Sunrise in Cooper? Who knows, I may have seen you and didn't even know it because I have been there several times since 2006. I agree about Cooper Landing; It is awsome and beautiful. When would be a good time to apply @ Sunrise for summer? I tend bar and wait tables... Sunrise in the summer has got to be good. :0) cheers, Scott B

Re: The Tetons. Jackson Lake Lodge (Mural Room) and Signal Mountain Lodge are good spots and both offer housing. Jackson Hole is nearby and has a lot of work available both summer and winter. I worked in The Mural Room and made good $$$ serving but Signal has an excellent reputation among seasonal employees. P.S. Where have you worked here in Alaska? I will probably stay here permanently and would like to do a seasonal position this summer. I am currently in Anchorage, but I am not fond of cities and so it is seasonal time again :0)

Hi again!

The EDR is ok to pretty good, in most places. In the Old Faithful area I liked the Snow Lodge best. At Lake Yellowstone, everything was pretty decent. Mammoth Hot Springs is very good. Canyon is horrible. Roosevelt is pretty bad. Never ate at Grant Village but was told it was the best in the Park.

I will most likely end up at Mammoth this season. But, if you get your choice, consider Lake Yellowstone. It is really, really nice there. But, there is about a half mile walk from the housing area to the EDR.

Also, I would apply within the next couple of weeks if you are really interested. Depends on what type of position you are interested as to how many people will applying for the same one. If you can stay the whole season you will be way, way ahead of almost everyone else and that will really help you alot.

Gina,

I worked in Yellowstone last season and am planning on returning again this year. There is a wide variety of jobs available in the Park. I would suggest going to yellowstonejobs.com to get a list and description of each type job available.

I worked and lived all over the Park and for lodging purposes, my favorite was Lake Yellowstone area. But, many like Canyon Village as well. Old Faithful area has the most jobs and is therefore, the busiest with the most tourists.

I think the people who make the most money are servers (as usual). If that is your gig, go to the Old Faithful or Lake Yellowstone areas as they have the nicest dining facilities and you can make good money in tips.

The employee housing issues is well, uh, just like being in college again. Dorm life takes getting used to and is usually quite noisy. Seems like there are many in their twenties and thirties who refuse to grow up so, be prepared!

Hope this helps a little. Best wishes in whatever you choose.

Scott
