What started as a fill-in "adult job" 10-years ago has blossomed into a career leading Ontario's youth and adaptive athletes towards their full potential. Full of passion, joy, and youthful exuberance, these guests constantly make work fun and life full. As Josh puts it, they are the ‘most engaging visitors’ on the mountain.
When asked to describe what's unique about working in the snow sports industry, Josh quickly cites the immediate proximity to nature, the lack of stress, and the easy access to the slopes. Plus, the views are something you never really get used to. "Either from the top or the bottom. Time can feel like it stands still when you're in the mountains."
However, don't think that Josh will give up his favorite Blue Mountain Resort secret spots to just anyone. Those particular gems are for him to enjoy and share with those who frequent his youth and adaptive programming.
When asked what makes his job special, Josh speaks fondly about the renowned 4-season offering at Blue Mountain Resort, and how the weather is never a negative and only a guide. Additionally, there’s a specific sense of pride noted in the fact that Blue Mountain is a landscape for all to enjoy, be it young, adaptive, aging, or full-time shredder who’s making the rounds.
