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.

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.

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?


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

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.
