We would like to share our homestead with someone who is passionate about recreation and helping others get exercise in the woods. We have regular traffic on weekends we are looking to grow. We need someone willing to help folks with a flat or a bad gear change or offer advice on technique or help wax some skis. We are flexible on the hourly commit and while we can not offer a salary at this juncture we will provide food and room, access to internet, woodshop, metalshop, craft room and yoga studio. Many residents also obtain revenue from online or offsite employment. The trail building is probably where we could use the most significant help in the summer months although grooming in the winter is also a major focus. There is also glade skiing and fat bike potential.
