Ride breaks seem to be dependent on what area you work in/your hours/how much your boss likes you. I am taking my chances and praying that after the holiday season the 56 hour weeks will go away.

OP, hope you're having some luck finding work off-mountain. Either way, good luck!
Where are you working, if you don't mind me asking? I talked to my boss and he seemed genuinely considerate about letting me work 24 hours a week except for training, Christmas week, President's Day week, and Easter week. That being said, I know he's biased, so I'm still working on finding a place and an off-mountain job. It's pretty slim pickings on the cheap apartment/house front. I'm not used to the above $600/month rent, and that's on the cheap side!

Which job positions on the mountain will let you take more riding breaks?

I`m also going to work on the mountain this season, at a small resort, and I`ll work at the rental shop. I hope I can get breaks in the middle of the day, when the rental shops get less busy.

::Editted:: to add the word "riding" at the question above, which is very important to highlight!
