(I get a disability check so I don't have to work but I can if I want).

Is snowboarding everyday financially feasible? Thanks, Craig
Im ust be missing something: You want to move to a new state specifically to be a snowboarder(and an instructor, wow!), but from your questions about lift tickets/season passes it seems like you have never even gone snowboarding before...

Serious question: why the sudden urge to become a snowboard instructor and how do you even know you'd like snowboarding once you do try it?

Maybe you should try it once before you move across the country to pursue a career doing it? Food for thought.
