Ski resort curbs ‘mountain chic’ by setting strict dress code
Skiers and snowboarders often are known for outlandish body piercings, tattoos and hairstyles—but not if they work for Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort in California.
The resort’s “look good, feel good” dress code starts by outfitting each employee with a uniform that’s the envy of the trendiest skiers on the mountain: Employees wear Spyder and 686-brand ski wear. Outerwear is paired with the employees’ own black pants, which may not be excessively faded, tight, frayed, unhemmed or patched. Baggy pants may not expose undergarments, and midriffs are always covered.
During warm weather, employees may wear shorts and skirts. The only hats employees may wear have company logos. Other rules:
- “Discreet” nose or tongue studs and “demure” earrings are OK, but other visible piercing is not permitted.
- Tattoos must be covered.
- Hair must be a natural color—no purple, green or pink, for example.
