The Appalachian Mountain Club’s backcountry huts serve as a source of information, accommodation, and aid for many of the thousands of hikers who visit New Hampshire’s White Mountains every year. The huts are a popular, public-facing resource for the AMC, one of the country’s longest operating conservation non-profit organizations, and play a vital role in the club’s mission of promoting recreation, environmental stewardship and outdoor education to the public. The hut crews support this mission by providing an unforgettable experience for all hut visitors, from crafting homemade meals, to presenting nightly naturalist programs. Working on a hut crew is an incredibly rewarding experience, and we are now accepting applications to work during the 2019 Fall season!
All hut positions require excellent guest service skills, backcountry familiarity, and a commitment to the goals of AMC. Employees are expected to continue the traditions of High Mountain Hospitality: providing good company, great food, and clean, comfortable accommodations to all. Just as important, you will be a member of a close-knit crew that lives and works together for the duration of the season which requires the whole crew to contribute to a positive, respectful, and inclusive community supported by open communication and effective group feedback discussions. Daily assignments (cooking, packing in supplies, cleaning, morning and evening support, interpretive programs) are all shared and will be organized by the resident Hutmaster (onsite location manager). The standard work schedule is 11 days on at the hut with 3 days off.
To Apply: Candidates should submit a cover letter and resume. Anticipated start date is early to mid-August. No phone calls, please.
