What is Mountains Work?
Mountains Work is made up of a coalition of individuals dedicated to improving the economic future of mountain communities around the US. Through our innovative weeklong work and stay scholarship programs, individuals have the opportunity to work, play, and live in a mountain community. Transportation and all of the accommodations (twin share) are taken care of and we arrange free workspaces for our participants while they are visiting. We also host fun lunchtime activities like mountain biking, paddle boarding, and skiing. Participants evenings are filled with fun events like beer tastings, midnight hikes, and the opportunity to chat with community leaders. We strive to make most of our events free, or at a drastically reduced rate. Our scholarship participants are able to experience life in a mountain town as a resident would. There is no catch, no timeshare presentation, and no sales pitch – we will let our beautiful towns do all the hard work.
