If You Can’t Get to the Mountain
Officials in Northern Virginia may be bringing the mountain to you. Fairfax County reached an interim agreement with Alpine-X, which is considering constructing an indoor ski slope atop an “inactive” landfill in Lorton.
If built, the company says the site would be the longest indoor ski slope in North America — giving you enough time to ponder whether the statement “the ski conditions are garbage” is meant literally or figuratively.
Lolita Taub and Victor Hwang, founders of The Community Fund and Right to Start, respectively, joined the latest episode of Technical.ly’s investor education podcast Off the Sidelines to talk how investing in people-centric organizations can yield serious financial returns.
From AI-powered hiring platforms to a (long-overdue) focus on diversity and inclusion, the tech hiring landscaping is changing. Ali Farrell, head of people for the gym-management/gainz-tracking platform Wodify, joined The TWIJ Show to talk about the latest shifts and trends in hiring and recruitment. Check out the four takeaways to see how you can (power)lift your organization to the next level.

If you can’t wait to shred the gnar in NoVa, you can get your turns in at Big Snow in, you guessed it, New Jersey. The Garden State is home to the continent’s first indoor ski slope, near the site of the old Giants stadium. No word whether they found Jimmy Hoffa’s body while building it.
Good luck out there on the job hunt, and remember, if you french fry when you should pizza, you’re gonna have a bad time.
