Students From Chile, Brazil Help Staff A Busy Park City Winter

screen_shot_2020-02-12_at_1.10.28_pm.png

 Chilean Jorge Vargas, a master's degree student in education and Brazilian Larissa Marlangeon, a business management student give us a glimpse of what life is like for international students on J1 student visas who come to experience the mountain life. Park City welcomes over 1,000 international students from south of the equator each winter to help produce a ski season for Park City's many visitors. Our two ski resorts, our many restaurants and shops might not be able to open their doors without these university students, mostly from South America, who spend their summer vacation…..in winter!
