It is no secret that locals in a ski town often have two, sometimes three jobs at one time, but the misconception lies in the fact that the reason for multiple jobs always has to do with money! Often what comes along with the choice to live this unique lifestyle is the desire for a non- traditional work schedule. Locals just don’t always go for the M-F 9-5!
In no way am I implying that having more than one job, working outside of a customary work schedule, means that residents living in and around a ski resort area do not work hard and crave challenging, rewarding employment. It is just the nature of living in a resort town, a ski town and in the middle of an outdoor paradise that has many locals working outside of the 9 – 5. (And it doesn’t hurt if you can fit a couple of extra hours during the day to play outside!)
Late 90’s I was working three different jobs in Jackson Hole. I was encouraged early on by veteran Jackson Hole locals to get myself out there skiing every day, even if I could only fit in one run! Hands down, probably the best winter seasons I have ever had. Worked more than ever and played even more. The ultimate goal for many locals, the ability to balance home life, a rewarding career and plenty of time in the mountains, most likely the reason you decide to live here!
