Dec 8, 2023

Hey there snow lovers! Are you tired of the same old 9 to 5 grind? Well, have no fear because we’ve got just the thing for you! In this blog post, we’re going to share with you some great places to find PRN shifts (that’s “as needed” shifts for those not in the know) that are perfect for snow enthusiasts like yourself. So if you’re ready to trade in your desk for a pair of skis or a snowboard, keep reading and get ready to hit the slopes while earning some extra cash!


Colorado is known for its massive ski resorts that have slops for any skill level of Skier or snowboarder. If you’re an adrenaline junky, or just someone who wants to relive your childhood, hitting the slopes of Colorado is a great way to have some winter fun in between your PRN shifts. 

If balance isn’t your strong suit, Colorado also offers unique tours of the backcountry. Strap on your helmet and get ready to adventure into the wilderness on snowmobiles! These guided tours let you rent any equipment you need.

Colorado has a lot of long-term care and rehab facilities that need help! Apply for PRN shifts in Colorado!


Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes. Believe it or not, the lakes in Minnesota are just as popular in the winter as they are in the summer. During the winter businesses haul large shanties onto the ice. People can rent the cabins spend weekends icefishing, and camp right on the lake. Don’t worry, the shanties are usually insulated well and stay pretty warm even in the middle of winter. 

If you aren’t into fishing, don’t worry, the lakes also make for a great place to practice your ice skating. In the winter, a lot of people who live near the lakes will shovel or snowblow sections of the lake to make them easy to use for ice skating and hockey matches. So strap up and get to skating!

If ice fishing sounds like fun, apply for PRN jobs in Minnesota!

North Dakota

Like Colorado, North Dakota offers a lot of opportunities for fun in between PRN shifts, like skiing and snowboarding. But one other really fun activity worth highlighting is snow tubing. Since snow tubing offers less control than a snowboard, snow tubing is much more fun for beginners. Most parks offer multiple lanes so you can go at your own pace, and not go too fast for your comfort. 

If snow tubing and skiing aren’t your thing, strap on some snow shoes and head into the wilderness for a hike. There are a lot of trails available for snowshoe hiking, and there are even companies that let you rent snowshoe equipment so you’ll have everything you need to go on your first snowshoe adventure. Just remember that conditions can change quickly in the winter, so make sure you check on conditions before you leave.

South Dakota

As you can imagine, South Dakota offers everything North Dakota has to offer. But, there are still some fun winter activities worth exploring while you work PRN shifts in South Dakota. 

But, just to give one extra winter activity worth trying, check out curling! Curling is a team game that is played at the Olympics, if you don’t recognize it by name, you’ll recognize it as the sport where two teams slide a stone on ice towards a target. Players sweep the ice to reduce friction and help curl the stone as close to the center of the target as possible.
