andrewdod yeah... i agree... you arent going to find anything that pays well there unless you somehow get into bed with like vail or boyne resorts... those are 2 of the major companies in the resort game... They're the only companies that i could even remotely think of that would need your skillset. Me? i work there for minimum wage to pay me electric bill for my apartment while im at school, and buy beer. oh... and the free pass is the shit.

too true. ive been working in rentals for 3 years sitting on just over $10/hr.. in our team of 9 rental techs we have:

- environmental science degree
- engineering degree
- philosophy degree
- sound technician degree
- millwright
- carpenter

a lot of these guys went through 3+ years of schooling and still sitting on minimum wage like me. nobody moves to the slopes to make money, they go to plain old shred.

Mizu Kuma I would take a guess at resorts contractin their engineering requirements out to a local company of sorts?????

They'd most likely have a few fitters on hand for breakdowns and general maintenance though!!!!!

It'd most likely be in a cold, shitty environment too!!!!!

I'd rather be pourin beers in the night, and ridin durin the day!!!!!

KansasNoob If you aren't afraid to wrench on stuff and are competent, and will follow directions and have good people skills they can use you. The few people I have talked to loved it. Ask around town too though, I have heard of some opportunities there some places.

BurtonAvenger Sanitation engineer, food service engineer, lift service loading engineer, lift scanning service engineer, photo engineer, custodial engineer, and I'm sure there's a few others you can slap on there.

Argo Given that you're a "technologist" yeah you could get a job doing something like "lift operation" or "mtn ops" doing the day to day repairs and maintenance on the lifts. You can also work as a cat driver doing overnight grooming.
