After working on national social media platforms, Saint Mary’s sophomore Alec Rudh knows to keep his statements short and to-the-point. So, in describing what it was like working at the 2019 Winter X Games in Aspen Jan. 22-28, he is concise: “best experience of my life, hands down.” Rudh was one of 17 Saint Mary’s business students who were part of the 2019 Winter X Games Student Work Program. Based on skills and personal strengths, students were placed into different departments throughout the event and received a variety of valuable skills that will transfer to future careers — and had access to the fast-paced action. The annual action sports event features snowbiking, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and skiing events, as well as live concerts with big-name musicians.
