What’s working in the Shop Like?
The retail experience at Sunwapta Falls is a significant factor in why TripAdvisor users have voted Sunwapta Falls Rocky Mountain Lodge so highly on social media sites like TripAdvisor, and why we’ve won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2 years running! It’s not the goods we sell or the prices they sell at. It’s about YOU, how you interact with our guests and clients to bring them a truly memorable experience.

Daytime:
Sunwapta Falls Rocky Mountain Lodge is not only a hotel, it is a very popular daytime stop for people travelling the incredible Icefields Parkway. We have an outstanding reputation for our gift shop and restaurant. This reputation is built not only on product, but on the values we hold, how we treat each one another and how we treat each person that walks through our doors.

We have great relationships with established tour companies that bring thousands of people through our doors each season. In addition, there are all the individual travellers dropping in to see what we have to offer. Daytime is our hustle and bustle time, and the time when the Parkway is busiest and our guests are out enjoying nature at its best.

& Night:
In the evening, our in-house guests have the spotlight. The Parkway is quiet as travellers are all off to check into their hotels. With 50 rooms at Sunwapta, the atmosphere on property in the evening is intimate, private, special.

Sunwapta’s commitment to providing outstanding vacation experiences in this pristine environment is a commitment we share in the Shop. As VIPs, our guests will have more time to spend with you as they browse and chat. It’s a unique opportunity to make meaningful connections. These clients come from all over the world! They are here on vacation and want to have memorable experiences. This includes their interaction with YOU!

What Else Can You Expect?
This is an opportunity for you to improve your ability to initiate and close sales, add valuable experience to your resume such as inventory control, pricing strategies, shipping and receiving, key holder, merchandising and display. There is even an opportunity to move to a supervisory role with more responsibility such as scheduling and supervising sales staff.

You can expect to contribute to an amazing season with an inspiring sales mission statement, top quality products with a wide selection of jewelry, art, garments, souvenirs and print, in an incredibly fun atmosphere. Not to mention, your manager is one of the best sales people to hit any retail floor, anywhere.
