The Rotorua trail building crew headed up by James Dodds (from MTB Skills Clinics) and Jeff Carter (from Southstar Shuttles) are in Chile building mountain bike tracks in the hills about Lago la Paloma. We are looking for trail builders to join us for 3 month building stints. The crew members get flights, food, accomodation and a good wage paid in $NZ.
Attached is the info sheet, if you're interested, let us know if you're keen to be involved, any previous trail building experience, and when you'd like to come over by emailing jeff(at)southstaradventures.com.
Departure dates for crews of 6 people are as follows:
May 15th 2009 - full July 25th 2009 - full Sept 29th 2009 - full Jan 11th 2010 - full March 17th 2010 - full May 21st 2010 -full July 25th 2010 - full September 28th 2010 - full Jan 10th 2011 - full March 16th 2011 May 20th 2011 July 24th 2011 Sept 27th 2011
Oh this has got to be a late april fools joke! A bit late for that eh Jeff. That looks brilliant, a dream job for sure... Whoever joins them I shall be very jealous of... I wonder if there is some way I could make it work for me???
Mmmm wish I could drop the real job for a few months and head over... would be a really good job i am sure! So many of us here that just build trails in our own time... actually getting paid for it would be great!!
As an aside, I know that Gravity (Bolivia and now Peru) are always looking for more workers too. You could fly over, dig for a few months and then hook up some mountain bike guiding work with them...

Awesome. Just had a look at the info and i´m jealous as hell of anyone who gets to do this. We spent a couple of months cycle touring around this area at the end of last year and it was fucking amazing. To anyone who is vaguely considering this idea, stop thinking, just do it.
