  • Manage a seasonal operational budget that anticipates hut and trail needs; evaluates alternatives; and includes researched resources, time, costs, and materials.
  • Use discretion, prudent decision-making, and flexibility when planning or reacting to both seasonal, near-term, and immediate organizational staffing levels, work schedules, and priorities.
