What mountain are you talkin about, if your talkin about Whistler or some shit, I'm not talking about the exceptions, I'm talking about the majority of resorts. Also I specifically said most people at resorts suck, there is always a few random badasses but they rarely work at a resort for season or two before they move on.
The best jobs around the resort on avg are gonna be a server or bartender....low almost part time hours and at some of these commercial resorts your walkin with hundreds in tips every night....I'm gonna take that over a lame ass day time resort job. I worked at Hard Rock Café in Tahoe and I was working 20-25 hours and making over 600$ a week
Good riders are the norm for the people I know that work for the resort here. There are bad ass riders/skiers too. I work 5 days a week 3-11 and ride 6-7 days a week 830-2.... Sometimes I leave at 1 to take a shower and eat. People who live and work here that WANT to be on the mountain, are on the mountain a lot. Snow carnies or not.
I do agree that I would rather work outside the resorts reaches in the evening. I would not give up living in the resort town though. Fuck driving 2 hours when you wanna ride....
