Win the Ultimate Mountain Gig

The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah is giving away the "Ultimate Mountain Gig" this winter. In addition to the $40,000 salary you'll receive for four months of "work", you'll get the full VIP treatment that includes a suite at the Waldorf Astoria, heli-skiing, avalanche training, spa treatments and full gear!

Your "job" will entail blogging about your activities at least 4 times per week with photos and video, attending Canyons events and participation in monthly Canyons activities. You'll also have to shadow shifts with various departments such as Ski Patrol, Food and Beverage, Lift Operations, etc.

Anyone 21 years and older is invited to submit a two-minute video clip which shares how they mountain (on or off the slopes) and why they are best suited for the “Ultimate Mountain Gig.” Each applicant must also submit a 500-word writing sample in the form of a blog. Applications must be submitted by November 25, 2010.

For more information and to apply for the “Ultimate Mountain Gig,” please click here.

I think the most interesting video should win not the boring narrative about loving the outdoors..

yeah, agreed. I think it should be more about a personal relationship and how their life is effected by it.

I have been really inspired by some of the videos, so much so that it really made me stop and ask "How do I mountain" ... and for me I decided "it's an Attitude" more than a destination, as so many times we unfortunately do not have the luxury of being in the mountains.
I would love to hear your feedback about my video - I have never made a movie in my life before - but here goes! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn1us6LYHwM

Megan - you did a great job - the video itself, and of selling yourself. Hey, and that food looked good as well!

Good luck - let us know if you're selected.
