Beyul Retreat, a backcountry adventure lodge meets wellness retreat, is now hiring for an Assistant General Manager position.

This is not your average hotel job, but so much more. Come live in a community, deep in the wilderness, 1 hour from Aspen, Colorado with access to hiking, biking, and backcountry skiing right out your cabin door.

You'll be responsible for supporting the management of the day-to-day operation of Beyul, including but not limited to the front desk, housekeeping, and property staff while supporting the General Manager in providing overall leadership in Beyul's continuing effort to deliver outstanding guest experience, experiential events and financial profitability.

Serve as "Manager on Duty" to oversee the property, in rotation with other managers. Jump in wherever is needed: Pickup a front desk shift, go flip a cabin when the housekeeping team is behind, build a bonfire for guests, etc. (This is a core part of the Beyul team culture for every team member.)

Event Support

When needed, work with booked private event clients to define the details of their events: run-of-show, setup needs, catering/meals, bar service, A/V needs, etc. Communicate these details to the rest of the Beyul team.
