Jobs - Video Production Manager

Who We Are

Ski The East is a fast growing company based in Williston, VT with a casual office atmosphere and plenty of excellent microbreweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and a giant lake right down the street. Did we mention the beautiful Green Mountains nearby that have the deepest snow and best ski resorts in the region?

Our brand has 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. This year we’re looking to grow the Ski The East team and expand on exciting new opportunities… in March we launched a new sustainable outdoor lifestyle brand, Eastward.
