I try very hard to never ever hold a job that has Saturday and Sunday off. Whether its snowboarding or river rafting, I want my days off mid week and I hate holidays with an extra intense passion. If I have a weekend off for any reason, the only option I will even consider is back country splitboarding. Won`t get within 10 miles of a resort on a peak day.



I better include my disclaimer since certain individuals who lurk the forums like to get butthurt when they take a comment out of context:
This is`nt a slam in any way against Meadows. It is the nature of ALL resorts to be crowded during peak days and I personally do not enjoy crowds and choose to avoid them. Again, not denigrating Meadows in any way.
LOL.... love your disclaimers.

Copious amount of alcohol?? ummm.. guilty as charged! I said I fell, but I also said I get right the fuck back up.. I don't care if I have so roll to safety I'll move.. simple as that.

And.... I never try to hold a job..... period..
