OP: After 2 years, nope. Certainly not at the level it takes to get sponsored. Keep riding and having fun.

Convince a high growth brand you can chip away at Burton's rental chokehold in the botique resort market. Get paid 5 to 10 times as much. Get as many days on the mountain. Fly to Breck with company jet. Done.

And for god sakes tell your parents to buy you a helmet!
haha yup, basically sort of my ultimate career goal. Get degree, get job in out door/action sports company, work my way through to the company I like, have fun, profit.
