WSDOT has two positions in Kittitas County – Hyak – Snoqualmie Pass for Avalanche Forecast and Control Specialists.
The South Central Region has two positions available with our Avalanche Forecast and Control Team stationed at Hyak on Snoqualmie Pass. The Avalanche Forecast and Control Team makes it possible for people and businesses to travel safely on our state highways through effective and efficient management of snow and avalanche related risks. These positions primarily cover Snoqualmie Pass and Chinook Pass.
The first position available is a permanent full-time position. The second position is a permanent seasonal position, and generally works 7-9 months. Both positions are a great opportunity for those with a strong background in skiing, avalanche forecasting and mitigation, and weather instrumentation.
If you have experience as a professional ski patroller with an avalanche center or highway program, one of these positions may be the job for you. We seek individuals with a desire to apply a variety of skills including triggering avalanches with explosives and ski cutting techniques, data management and instrumentation experience, and alpine ski touring.
