a bunch of my friends from high school went on to do that for "a couple years"(most are still doing it). You can live and work in a resort town, most have cheap employee housing or even employee dorms, you get free riding, live on the slopes, ride for work, etc. You don't get paid a whole lot, so you won't be big pimpin' or anything, but they seem to like it. all they really do is smoke hella weed and ride. If your job isn't snow-dependent you can stay there year round, but most kids I know get second jobs working construction, waiting tables or in some summer area of the resort.
