Hey Kevin, I got some pics of the resort up on my profile if ya want to take a look :) Your ideas for adventures sound terrif! I'd love to hang in New Zealand someday. Australia is tops on my list of places I want to go back to...
yeah unfortuinately you have to have some hospitality because not only are you dealing with animals but you're dealing with their crazy owners!!! i wish your g/f luck - it is a very rewarding job! although the pay is not up to par!
Thanks! What's your beef with Michigan, anyway? When I started this "journey" about a month ago I WAS looking at ranch jobs. I've actually applied and spoke to a ranch in CO and waiting to hear back from them. Now that I've had time to do research though I am finding myself oooooing and aaaaaing at every different position and place. I originally wanted to go to Alaska but think it is a better idea to get an idea of the seasonal positions around the "lower 48". Any thoughts? Also looking at Lake Powell for summer and still looking for possible winter jobs next year. Can't start anything until early March 2010 due to travel plans. After that I'm as free as the open road! Cheers.
Thanks so much for your note. And I'm glad you got to see the ball of twine. He was building that when I was a kid. Pretty quirky. Who would have imagined it would become the identity of the town? I'm headed by there today to visit my brother.
The town has two condo complexes that were built by the town and are run non-profit. The one further from the town has studios in the range of $600 and they were available year around on a six-month lease save for deep ski season for a month or two when they were full. One is called something like the Mountain Village Condos and the other is called something like Big Kate's or something. Every employee of the hotel where I worked moved out of the one, saying they didn't like it and I agreed. I would do the Big Kate's one but the easiest way to check is to google up the local paper, Telluride Daily Planet, and its housing classifieds. I believe you'll be pleasantly surprised, at least if you're hip to housing costs in Vail and Aspen.
Hey Kevin! Thanks for the warm welcome, I'm actually in the process of searching for a job up North that fits my degree of Hospitality, Recreation, and Resort Management, hence, why I'm on this site... Do you have any suggestions for Fall/Winter jobs/locations?
Thanks for checking on ranch jobs, Kevin. And thanks for the words of encouragement; I really appreciate it. I'll keep plugging away on the apps and I'm sure I'll find something good. Good luck to you on your ranch adventure. I'm looking forward to hearing stories and seeing photos. Likely see you on chat soon enough :)
Thanks for the in sight Kevin. I think it will be a good season there. Ill be the bar manager as well. Sounds like a small staff there which is fine and haven't met a chef yet that's terribly eazy to get along with either. From your posts looks like you are heading to coldfoot camps. I considered that as well did a summer in Skagway awhile back. Hey in addition to the salary did cash tips amount to much? Anyhow thanks again and really have a great summer Delete Comment
