Tuckerman Ravine Caretaker Job Opening
« on: September 07, 2006, 02:59:02 PM »
The AMC is looking to hire a Head Caretaker for the Hermit Lake Shelters below Tuckerman Ravine.  Applicants should have good technical skills on rock, ice, skis or snowboard, a current WFR or WEMT, ability to use avalanche safety equip., and the good humor to deal with thousands of backcountry skiers, climbers and inner-tubers during the winter season. 

The job requires living in the backcountry for 10 days at a time, in harsh weather.  However, the cabin is equipped with a phone, a two-way radio, and a slow modem connection.  It also comes with all the food you can eat.  The head caretaker works closely with the USFS Snowrangers (several who were once caretakers) to educate Ravine users on safe travel in avalanche terrain and current conditions.
