If I follow through with my plan, I will definitely stay in the Canadian Rockies for various reasons- so Alberta/B.C.

Also, (if any of you guys have first hand experience) what are the benefits of working at a resort as a liftie, ski patrol, or a cashier to have your pass and housing paid for (is staff housing good or bad?) vs. saving up a pretty penny to rent a house, buy my own ticket, and have the freedom to ride whenever i want?

Any help would be appreciated, I'm trying to get this get this sorted out so i have my options open. This is a one year deal and will serve as a breather from school before I head into Pharm. School.

Definitely do it, especially if you can get into school and then not start for another year. You won't regret doing it, you'll only regret not doing it. I always wanted to and now im stuck in a full time job, do it while you can.

What happens in the mountains stays in the mountains...except herpes, that shit will stay with you forever!

Haha dont worry about me I have a keen eye for dirty hoes.

I think being an instructor or patrol guy would be the best, you get paid to board and teach others to board!
