New Mexico ski resort is looking for volunteers

ALTO, N.M. (TBD)— Ski Apache is seeking individuals interested in volunteering as Yellow Vest Mountain Hosts this winter season. Mountain hosts donate their time by assisting the ski resort in areas such as speed control, guest services, and hot cocoa distribution. In exchange, Ski Apache provides benefits such as lift tickets, discounts, and other mountain perks.

“We are looking for people who love to ski or snowboard and enjoy giving back to the community,” said Justin Rowland, director of operations at Ski Apache. “Yellow Vest Mountain Hosts are an important part of the Ski Apache team as they help to keep our guests safe and informed.”

People with flexible schedules, who can ski or ride, and demonstrate a great attitude are encouraged to apply. Applicants should also note that they will be on their feet or skis for most of the day.
