Jay Peak Resort in Vermont—a family winter ski escape that also offers indoor activities—lost several workers the company’s president, Steve Wright, called “great employees right up until this moment.”

That moment took place at a costume party when five employees from Peru, who held J-1 visas, chose to wear homemade swastika armbands and perform Nazi salutes, leading to a photo of them on Instagram.

Wright stated: “We have a zero-tolerance policy as it relates to this sort of thing.”

He said the resort promptly investigated the incident, and on Feb. 6, the employees were terminated and are “heading back to their hometown.”

One anonymous employee at the resort told NBC5, “I feel like Jay Peak as a whole is very ‘peace, love and positivity’ type of vibes—and that’s the exact opposite of what we’re getting with that [photo].”

The Peruvians worked at the resort’s water park and as lifeguards for about a month.
