    Any of you wrenches out there ever considered moving to the Tetons?
    A very cool little shop in Victor is looking for at least one experienced mechanic for a really chill shop job.

    The shop also is a high end ski/snowboard shop as well, so skills with that would be welcome. Customer flow is mellow, and the shop is central to Teton Village, Grand Targhee, Teton Pass, and the Big Holes.

    Help with finding housing possible. Shop currently carries Santa Cruz, Gary Fisher, Iron Horse, Phat, Armada, 4Front, Unity, Nidecker, Lib Tech, Burton, etc.
    Come live here!


    And ride here:

    Looks sweet, but I don't think the lady would move for a shop job....unless you are paying $50k or more..... :(

    Are you paying moving costs? Last time I checked uprooting costs a good chunk of change and being a mechanic didn't pay that well

    I think the moving is tax deductible since it would be for work. Then again no one really moves to be a bike mechanic.

    Its deductible, but you're still out the cash...just don't get taxed on it

    I am probably the closest chance you have of someone taking the job from out here, the problem is I race the national circuit and I make more on my retirement and disability than you would be willing to pay, but I will keep spreading the word for you

    I'd consider doing it, I'm about done college and I don't wanna get a "real" job just yet. What's rent like there?
