bThis is my 3rd season so my goals are:

*get comfortable riding switch (should be interesting on a NS premier)
*go into the park a bit more, hit more rails and kickers, etc
*get better ridnig in trees - I have a trip out to Jackson Hole planned in Jan. Now an invite to stay with a buddy in Denver this season. So, I should have ample opportunity.

Good luck with that.

I've already taken a bunch of days off in December (which is our busy season) and pissed off a bunch of people. Screw 'em, I hoard all my vacation time for winter.

did the exact same thing. I get 4 weeks a year, and I took 3 of them from the middle of december through the first week in january.

i cover their asses in the summer, but they bitch and moan during the winter. Oh well, I'll be shredding while they're complaining come december!!

Im a contract employee--daily hire. Sometimes weekly.

So for me it's not that I have to ask for time off. I just tell them Im not available when they call.

the problem is if Im "unavailable" too much they'll stop calling all together and then I will be broke. I try to work about 120 days a year.

It's a delicate balance fo sho
