Woo hoo I am finally going back to seasonal work.   I will be back up in Alaska Fairbanks Lodge this summer.

After having the last 2 summers away from seasonal work I am more excited then ever to get back into it.  I don't think I will ever people to the daily grind in the real world.  Wish me luck I hope to hear some offers a new seasonal adventure.

Less than 90 days to go at Alta and it has finally started snowing like I heard it could.  Had two offers for summer, kept changing my mind.  Decided to go with Alaska Wildland Adventures.

Karen--I've heard nothing about the Omega. Any of the Princess properties are good choices. Everyone that I have met that have went to Custer has good things to say...but I have read some nasty written comments. And Yellowstone varies widely...mainly depends on how you mesh with whatever your closest co-workers are like. Have a fun summer wherever you land!

Applied for the Work Exchange Program at Maho Bay for October. Guess I'm counting on getting a summer gig that will end in September.

I am a newbie!  have applied to Omega Institute in Hudson Valley, Copper River Wilderness Lodge in Alaska, Custer S. P. in S. D., and Yellowstone.  Have just retired this year and hope to get a seasonal spot.  Has anyone worked at any of the above listed places?

After reading some posts I think it might be difficult to get that first spot.

Have applied at Stillpoint Lodge in Alaska. They emailed me and said they would be in touch soon. I'm thinking about sending my info to the Island Inn in Maine on the 2nd.

In a coupe of days I start my winter job...and it's getting soon to start applying for summer already!

6 weeks left at the North Rim.  Then I'll have 4-6 weeks off, before heading to the Rustler Lodge in Alta.  Just finished making some plans for the time off.  Vegas for a week ('cause it's cheap and close), Oklahoma City, Austin, Chicago, then visiting family and friends back in Wisconsin...Green Bay and Oshkosh.

I have 68 days left at the North Rim.  I have a few apps out for winter, looking at cold places this winter.  Had some emails with HR at Mammoth and was supoposed to be contacted by some area managers, but that's been a few weeks.  I have an interview tomorrow morning with the Rustler Lodge in Alta, Utah.

I've met a few people that have done Big Bend.  Pretty much like everywhere a couple liked it much more than others.  Those that seemed to like it more were into the many hiking opportunities that they didn't know until they got there.  Those that didn't like it so much were mainly concerned with the seasonal working with year-round co-workers thing.
