Travellers can experience backcountry lifestyle and have access to outdoor hikes, bike rides, skiing, fishing etc. I have 1 mtnbike and 2 sets of snowshoes I can lend helpers.
Chance to learn about natural building and construction & landscaping.
Local towns are very beautiful with many festivals and events all through the summer/fall.
I usually need help maintaining the cabins...such as... easy construction, staining wood, cleaning. Also need help with chores such as landscaping, snow removal and chopping firewood.
No experience needed, but an Interest in construction, landscaping and outdoor activities is an asset.
I have 2 different cabins for volunteers..the vacation rental is used if I have several volunteers & I have a brand new tiny cabin for 1 person or a couple. Both cabins have limited internet access (1-2 hrs/day), no running water or electricity, have well equipped kitchens, outhouses & sauna/shower building, watertap located outside each cabin.
