1,046 JOB APPLICANTS CAN'T BE WRONG; ASPEN'S INTERNATIONAL APPEAL
 ATTRACTS A MOUNTAIN OF WORLDWIDE EMPLOYMENT CANDIDATES
 ASPEN, Colo., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Aspen Skiing Co., one of Aspen's biggest employers, has been snowed under by 1,046 job applications representing all 50 states and six countries to fill 200 positions as the town gears up for its 1992-93 ski season which officially begins on Thanksgiving Day.
 The avalanche of applicants converged on a recent job fair held at The Inn at Aspen although job applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Available positions included ski lift operators, lift ticket sales, day care, food and beverage, ski instructors, patrols, etc.
 The reasons for the deluge of job seekers clearly indicate Aspen's tremendous international appeal. It's a foremost resort; many take a leave of absence from their "regular" vocations so they can ski Aspen on a steady income. Others obtain permanent jobs there because it's a great place to live while some people take prolonged "working" vacations to prospect the viability of relocation.
 In a period where a huge number of jobs are eliminated daily in other parts of America, Aspen has hung out a friendly "Help Wanted" sign. For the majority of applicants, these are reasons enough to head for the Rockies and vie for a gig at the prestigious Little Nell hotel or the Snowmass Lodge & Club.
 Applicants from Canada, Mexico, France and other European countries have applied for jobs with the Aspen Skiing Co. in any available capacity in exchange for the luxury of clocking out and streaking down the slopes, dining in fine cateries and mastering the town's unique ambiance.
 Resort communities typically attract a large number of job- seekers and Aspen is at the top of the list. A steady paycheck in a world-class environment where the slopes are aces, Aspen provides the best that life has to offer.
