The Wright Awards

Last week Mountain Careers was honored to be selected as a contender of ‘The Wright’ awards. Thirteen passion-led, purpose-driven, outdoor focused businesses were selected to contend for the 2019 Wright Award. Everyone contender shared their story, their products and created a network for three days of learning and connecting.

Hailing from communities across the Rocky Mountain West—from Golden to Bozeman and Durango to Jackson—these 13 companies give much to celebrate. On Award Night, they share their stories with us in the form of 90-second films. (Watch them all here!)

The Wright brings together leaders, innovators and supporters of the outdoor industry to support their three core principles: Sustainability, Stewardship and Possibility.

At the awards Mountain Careers was described …

‘Aryn Schlichting is leveling up mountain town workforces and changing the perception that these communities offer only seasonal opportunities for aspiring ski bums. And, while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, she’s highlighting the variety of jobs and career opportunities that make living in these coveted locations not only a desire, but a reality. In 2015, she launched Mountain Careers – a job board created specifically for employers located in and around mountain towns. Using traditional and digital methods to spread the word to its network of more than 7,000 subscribers, Mountain Careers is helping professionals find their dream jobs and balance their career and lifestyle.’
