Where do our seasonal employees work during the Summer?

As a seasonal business, Ski Butlers employes lots of awesome people in the wintertime that find other means of supporting themselves financially through the summer months.  Now that our shops have closed down for the summer, many folks in mountain towns are looking for work.  Common summer jobs in ski towns typically include working the summer tourist season, such as working as a raft guide or workong on a local golf course in some capacity.
