If you travel or are not in Tahoe for extended periods during busy season – you will not be hired. Typical schedules during these periods can be anywhere from 3-10 tours a week per trip leader.

We do not recommend this position as your primary source of income due to these fluctuations. Most of our tours run in the morning to mid afternoon. Making this position a great way supplement income for those in the service industry, Uber drivers or any job that is flexible schedule wise.
