Jobs - Video Production Manager

Who We Are

Ski The East is a fast growing outdoor apparel brand based in Burlington, VT. We have been building the finest ski lifestyle clothing since 2005 all while shredding Volkswagen-sized moguls, neck deep powder, and rock hard ice with a smile on our faces. Our company has a casual office atmosphere and plenty of excellent microbreweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and America’s “6th Great Lake” (Lake Champlain) right out our front door. This year we’re looking to grow the Ski The East team and expand on exciting new opportunities.

We recently moved into the best office space in the state: Hula Lakeside - which houses a cafe, gym, bar, indoor gardens as well as a beach surf club and bike path mere steps away. Did we mention the beautiful Green Mountains nearby that have the deepest snow and best ski resorts in the region?
