Reason #1

After basically setting up a criteria for my self on where I want to work this November, I found that the top requirement on my list was a resort that had summer operations.

Not only do I mountain biking, but I also want the opportunity to continue my employment through the spring, summer and fall. I figured the best way to ensure this would be to pick from the list of of ski hills that turn to bike parks for summer.
ImageAfter looking at the bike park stats, I was relatively pleased seeing that they had 33% Intermediate trails which is where my skill level is currently at, and that there was also 33% expert so there would still be a drive to challenge myself towards tougher and more technical terrain.
