Ultimate Mountain Gig Competition Won By Ultimate Wheelchair Adventurer

Tagged with:

This fall, Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah, asked people to apply for the “Ultimate Mountain” gig. The job paid $40,000 salary and required only four months of work that included blogging about their experience four times a week. The winner could ski for free, live at the Waldorf Astoria for free, get all new ski gear, spa treatments and more. And The Canyons has the first ever heated-seat ski lift in North America. Applicants needed to use “mountain” as a verb. If you liked the cold, snow and skiing — it was the ultimate job.
