About Becker’s Chalets

Company Profile:

Becker’s Chalets is a family oriented seasonal resort just 5km south of the hustle and bustle of the Jasper town site. Located along the Athabasca River, with mountainous views and lots of green space – it is a very quiet and relaxing location for both guests and employees alike. As a team, we all work together to ensure that our guests have a very clean and memorable stay.

We have achieved many awards over the years, some of which include the “Employers of Choice” award through the Hotel and Lodging Association since 2014 – we treat our employees like family. The hotel associate of Canada “Green Key eco-rating award” earning 4 out of 5 gold keys is another award we have achieved, ensuring to do our part in reducing, reusing and recycling. We have been a “housekeeping award” recipient since 1989 along with achieving our level 3 in the Hotel and Lodging Associations “Health and Safety” program. We have also been nominated twice for the “communities in bloom” award – to name a few awards that we have achieved over the years and continue to achieve and strive towards.

Becker’s Chalets has many perks to offer its employees.  Firstly, we do have shared staff accommodations on property (3 out of the 5 have been completely renovated over the past 2 winters).

Throughout the season, many of our employees at Becker’s Chalets learn how to work under pressure at times, learn how to problem solve, learn some customer service and learn how to deal with customer complaints, suggestions, feedback and compliments. Also, you will become a more team oriented person – hopefully with good team spirit while working towards a common goal – to name a few. Lastly and quite importantly, most of our employees leave here at the end of the season with lasting friendships and a very memorable experience.
