Smile No money in instructing

I just got a job working weekends as a snowboard instructor at Gunstock. I'm just doing it for fun, but damn was I surprised at the shitty pay. It only pays 7.50/hr and only if you have a lesson. Do all mountains pay this badly?

I'm just glad that I'm not trying to do it as a full time job. It may be a blast, but it's hard to make ends meet, let alone buy all the toys that you want, when you are earning minimum wage and you aren't even guaranteed 40 hours a week.

Are there experienced instructors who actually manage to make a decent paycheck?
