The Resources page on MountainJobs.com was created to give job seekers looking for employment within mountain communities a taste of the mountain culture. For those inquiring minds that always want to know, “What do they do there (besides ski)?”, a visit to some of these websites will give you an idea, and show you how the arts/events/festivals in these small towns actually do play a major role.
Dancers Workshop, the new Center for the Arts, Grand Teton Music Festival, the Fall Arts Festival, film festivals and the Teton County Library are just a handful of places and events that come to mind when I think about community and culture in Jackson Hole. As more ski towns become four season resorts with an increasing number of year-round residents … the cultural offerings continue to expand.
For Colorado job seekers looking for more community information, read Creative Pursuits – Tracking Eagle County’s cultural landscape in yesterday’s Vail Trail that talks about the importance of a ”communities cultural landscape” and how it contributes to the overall health of a town.
“There’s growing diversity in all of these resorts. We can’t just be appealing to the people who come in for three days, we need to appeal to the full-time residents, the second-home owners and the people who work in the service industry. There’s a wide range of folks out there, who would probably support your arts, if you were talking in their language.”
