Cover sports indoors and out in a
Rocky Mountain paradise
If you're as passionate about sports outside as you are courtside, we have the dream job for you.
From Friday night lights to rafting down the Colorado River on New Year's day, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent seeks a journalist interested in everything from ice climbing to high school athletics. With a half-dozen high schools in our coverage area, we've got a slew of prep sports to write about. You can read some of the highlights from the past year here.
We've also got some of the nation's greatest great outdoors. Given our cozy spot at the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys, we've got snow sports, climbing, paragliding, angling and everything else you can do under the sun. It's also an opportunity for enterprise reporting that resonates well beyond our slice of paradise. With both winter and summertime tourism, the effects of people on our environment and how we can enjoy where we live sustainably is a critical issue.
