Haha, trolled by spammers.
Im in the medical field, I work 3 days a week. I have plenty of time to go snowboarding when the season is on. Unfortunately it is winding down, from here on out they are only open on the weekends and I work weekends.

I'm in Hong Kong now and this is the pic I snapped at the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery just to use as a troll warning here and on another forum I frequent. Could be used for spammers too.

I think the key is to have a job where you're your own boss. But even that isn't a perfect fit...
My job isn't the most exciting (I'm a stock broker, so it's probably more exciting than some) but it pays well. I got the job through blind luck (not connections) and was hired over the phone because the company (a big, prestigious one that you've heard of) was desperately looking for someone for a particular area that didn't have any local/native talent. They needed to fill the spot immediately and I was willing to move... so I moved across the country (Atlanta to LA) for it and I'm glad that I took that risk.
But the great thing about my job is that I set my own hours. But that's also the terrible thing about my job. Most of my clients are really nice retirees. I think of most of them as my grandparents. And they certainly treat me like I'm their grandkid - they bake me stuff, they ask me when I'm going to get married, etc... And although I could leave the office whenever I want to and let my assistant cover for me, I know that I'd be letting a ton of my clients down if I did. These people are depending on me and no matter how nice that powder might be, I can't put my own hobby ahead of their entire financial stability.
I end up working more than I would if I was salaried lol. But my hope is that I can grow a bit more and then hire a junior partner who'll cover for me on powder days. That should happen at the end of the year for the 2017 season... assuming he/she doesn't need to hold their hand lol.
