Park City Chamber welcomes 1,438 exchange visitors to the community with updated Seasonal Workforce Resource Guide

PARK CITY, Utah – The Park City Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau (PCCVB) has compiled a Seasonal Workforce Resource Guide for seasonal workers to make the transition to Park City easier. In the wintertime, Park City businesses rely on the incoming help from students and exchange workers with J-1 visas.

Many exchange workers come from Argentina, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, and Costa Rica. The bureau has been collecting information on housing, transportation, mental health services, Spanish-speaking support, and more.

Last year, the PCCVB launched this initiative with its first edition of the Seasonal Workforce Resource Guide.

“These dedicated workers bring a unique energy and resilience, ensuring our businesses thrive and our community flourishes,” said Jennifer Wesselhoff, President & CEO of the Park City Chamber & Visitors Bureau. “At the Park City Chamber & Visitors Bureau, we recognize the invaluable role of seasonal workers in fostering a dynamic, interconnected, and thriving mountain community. It is our responsibility to reciprocate their dedication by providing essential resources, support systems, and opportunities for growth, ensuring they feel valued and empowered as integral contributors to our shared success.”

The new guide includes videos produced by the Mountain Mediation Center that provide information on renting to help prevent conflicts and what to do if a conflict does arise. The PCCVB has a partnership with Mountainlands Housing Community Trust and Rossignol to try to provide more affordable housing for seasonal workers.

“Many seasonal workers have never been to Park City and can feel overwhelmed with each step in their moving process. From riding the bus to renting an apartment, these challenges can be alleviated with the assistance of educational resources,” said Gretchen Lee, Executive Director at Mountain Mediation Center. “The Park City Chamber & Visitors Bureau and Mountain Mediation Center ensure that the workers have access to these resources to make their stay in Park City comfortable and memorable.”
