If hosting isn’t for you but you want to work a season in the mountains - maintenance is always a good role to choose. You’ll need some skills at any sort of technical trade – not necessarily to a professional level, but you need to be able to turn your hand to most things and in particular plumbing, electrics and carpentry.
