Staff Members Issued a Uniform

Deer Valley will furnish certain uniform items to staff who are required to wear a specific uniform. Some positions require staff to wear specific pieces, check with your supervisor regarding what is appropriate for your position and how it is to be worn. There may be some specific, approved uniform pieces for purchase by the staff member.

Specified uniform items will be issued, cleaned, and returned through, the Equipment Issue department. Some specific uniform items may be exchanged for clean ones at Equipment Issue. Non-returnable items will need to be maintained by the staff member as personal presentation is key to a professional image. Staff are expected to keep their uniforms in good repair. Deer Valley may charge the staff member for any company provided item damaged beyond normal wear and tear, or any item that has been lost. Any staff member who loses a uniform item (or thinks it may have been stolen) should report the situation immediately to the appropriate.

Equipment Issue office and complete a lost or stolen uniform report. Appropriate deductions may be made from the staff member’s final paycheck for uniform items not returned. A staff member who terminates employment prior to the end of the season will be charged for non-returnable uniform items (hats, headbands and turtlenecks) that were issued to him or her.

  • Staff may use staff facilities to change in or out of uniform or may wear their uniforms to and from work
  • Staff who choose to wear their uniforms to and from work are strictly prohibited from wearing them in public places off resort property
  • All layered clothing under your uniform pieces should not be visible while in uniform

Yoga pants, sweatpants, or other casual knit type pants are not acceptable
