Work at Forged Axe Throwing

Forged is proud to offer year round employment opportunities.
What does being an axe throwing host entail?

We’re a young and really dynamic business and we’re always trying new things, if you like contributing at work and are in for a bit of adventure you will have the best time at Forged. Some days you will be hosting groups in our space and teaching groups of people how to throw axes, think of bachelor parties, corporate events, birthday parties, and also visitors to Whistler who are looking for something new.
On other days you will be hosting parties with our mobile axe throwing trailer in Squamish, Vancouver, Pemberton, or anywhere else that wants some axe throwing in their lives. Then on other days you might be assisting with building new targets, painting a new trailer, assisting with merchandising, or helping with marketing. If you have special skills you think would help us out please let us know in your application.
