Internship Opportunities


Want Publishing Experience?

Rock and Ice and Trail Runner offer intern opportunities. Now is your chance to roll up your sleeves and get dirty in print and online!



Info: 
Both magazines offer internships in the editorial department and the advertising department throughout the year. Internships are unpaid, but typically receive college credit and earn valuable experience and an add-on to their resumes. Dates and hours are flexible, but interns should plan on working at least 20 hours a week. Internships are in Carbondale, Colorado. Additional paying work in the area is usually not difficult to find, but housing can be an issue. Look for housing ahead of time! Please bring a laptop, if possible.

Editorial Internship

Duties: 
Internship duties vary depending on experience, expertise and willingness to learn, but typically include:

  • Writing magazine pieces
  • Writing website pieces, especially news (we'd like to see at least one news item posted every day)
  • Researching stories and fact checking
  • Copy editing
  • Brainstorming for article and marketing

We ask each intern to arrive with at least three article ideas.

Requirements: 
Interns must be motivated and self-sufficient, and expect to work on their own. Interns need to seek out ideas, subjects and projects and follow through. Good candidates will demonstrate a willingness to learn, have writing/editing experience and climbing or trail running experience, and detailed knowledge of the magazine.

Perks:

  • Get the inside scoop on how magazines really work
  • Hang with an office of fun, outdoorsy folks who want to make you part of the team
  • Experience the world-class climbing and running on Colorado's Western Slope
  • Break into the magazine field
  • Go bouldering every Tuesday night

Contact:

If interested, please send resume, cover letter and writing clips (college pubs are OK) to Alison Osius
 aosius@bigstonepub.com.

Requirements:

Interns must be driven, well-organized, a strong writer, and able to communicate professionally within the office and with clients. Preference will be given to college students or recent graduates who have studied marketing or advertising. Familiarity with trail running or climbing is a plus.

Not So Fast: Lessons From a Father-Son Trip to Patagonia
Every couple of years, my son Tim, Jr. and I take a climbing trip together. Usually we pick one of my “dream climbs”—those classic routes that you always hear about, but seem too difficult to consider seriously. But my son encourages me to climb harder than I think I can, and together we have done The Scenic Cruise, The Naked Edge, Primrose Dihedrals and most recently Lotus Flower Tower. It is especially cool for me both to tick a lifetime goal and climb with my son.
Climbers We Lost In 2012
Jack Roberts died January 15 on Bridalveil Falls, the 400-foot Grade 5 ice climb outside Telluride, Colorado, a route he had done countless times. Says his wife, Pamela Ranger Roberts, "When they finally reached me in Cuba, over 24 hours later, and told me, I truly did not believe it. My first thought was, 'He can't be dead, he's in Telluride. NO WAY he could die in Telluride!'”
