  • Description


    Tim and Jenna live and work locally as ski patroller, trail builder, gardener and graphic designer. We could use some help at our 6 acre mountain hideaway collecting firewood, gardening, constructing out buildings and trail building. Enjoy the serenity of the outdoor salt water hot tub and a nice hike or bike ride before or after helping out around the property. All this just five minutes drive to town.
    We have two small doggers Pedals and Frosty. They like to play and cuddle
