"I arrived from Brazil on December 2," Rizzi said.

The problem is that after just two weekends of operation, Donner Ski Ranch had to shut down its operation due to a lack of snow.

"Normally, I'd have 100 employees working right now, but today, you're looking at the only person working," Donner Ski Ranch's Lincoln Kauffman said.

Kauffman said 56 of those employees are foreign exchange workers just sitting and waiting for more snow to fall in order to get back on the job.
