DMC Companies Inc. (T/A Ski Travel Unlimited and the Fairfax Surf Shop). Ski Travel Unlimited has operated high school and college ski/snowboard trips to Canada for over 36 years. Presently, Ski Travel takes students from over 100+ high schools in the Washington DC metro area and over 400 colleges all over the north-eastern United States. Nearly 4,000 students annually attend our trips to the world-class resort at Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada. The Fairfax Surf Shop is a landmark surf-snow-skate retail shop that has been located in the City of Fairfax for 40 years.
For the past nine summers, the Fairfax Surf Shop and Ski Travel have coordinated the annual non-profit event, SkateFest Fairfax and Skate for a Cause to raise money for the Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. With this being our 10th anniversary of SkateFest Fairfax and our 40th Anniversary of the Fairfax Surf Shop this year will be by far the biggest year yet. The Intern will help coordinate, plan and run SkateFest Fairfax 2016.
Our company is an exceptional place to gain small business experience and to build your resume.

The work environment will be fun and casual, but also challenging and full of learning opportunities. Potential candidates must have the ability to work independently or in a team environment to help achieve the overall goals of the company.
The internship will be in our corporate office located in the City of Fairfax, Virginia, about 1 mile from George Mason University. Our office is easily accessible by the CUE Gold 2 Bus. Also from Vienna Metro via CUE bus.
