Hear About What It's Like to Work at The National Winter Activity Center

""Being a part of the Winter4Kids culinary team I am rewarded daily when a participant tries a new food or learns about healthier options that can last into their future health. Seeing the smiling faces of children experiencing pure winter fun in the snow, all while trying a new sport, that’s the real Joy!""

"“Why do I like working at Winter4kids? It’s a child-focused learning environment, bringing new generations into winter sports that normally are not given the opportunity. It’s so much more than a ski mountain. It’s a non profit program with a mission that resonates to my core values.”"
Josh - Base Operations
""Here at the W4K, we make our young athletes feel like kings and queens. It's all about them! Everyone leaves with an experience they will never forget. Every year. Every cycle, we feel like we are growing up with our youth through some of the brightest years of their lives. Participants leave this special place knowing their way around the mountain. They build courage and gain knowledge. They then take these exciting experiences and incorporate them in their journeys of life""
