QFT unfortunately, Shred lived in the PNW where the lifts are cheaper. Being a Utardian it is a little more expensive. You are looking at 65 dollars a lift ride at Brighton, which is the cheapest pass in the Cottonwoods. Good luck!

How many would one use a lift in day though on average? If someone wants to snowboard do they HAVE to go to a resort? Aren't there mountains that people can snowboard on in Utah without having do the "resort" thing?

Want to die in an avalanche? If not, I would stay at a resort.

QFT - Quoted for Truth

PNW - Pacific Northwest

Maybe it's just us up here in Canada, but it's common courtesy to tip the liftie every time they wipe the snow off the chairs. I usually tip $5 for every wipe so it gets really expensive every trip up.

Default Yah right

I didn't believe what you were guys were saying so I called a resort in Utah just a few minutes ago and the lady told me it's 50 dollars for an "all day pass" and they DO NOT charge every time you ride; only for the day which includes unlimited rides all day.

Hilarious thread and you guys are all going to hell (which is probably a lot more fun that the xian heaven anyway).

Craig, based on your ignorance of the basics (that's not a slam, just observation), you haven't ever snowboarded. What made you decide already on instructing?

yea, well you're from LA, have obviously never been on a mountain, are collecting a government check and want to get a job at a resort.

if you're collecting disability then collect disability. if you want to move to the mountains and learn to snowboard then go ahead and do it. imo you shouldn't be taking a job from someone who doesn't collect welfare. in general the people working at mountain resorts do so because they love the snow and riding on it.

pay some dues.
