(I get a disability check so I don't have to work but I can if I want).

Is snowboarding everyday financially feasible? Thanks, Craig
Son, that's a hell of an introduction there.

Truth be told there are a few vets in the woods that love to ride. I work with this guy that lives in the sticks....shack, sled, rv, wife and little kid....he's set, works part time...idk what he did in the military. They lap on this logging road that they sled in on and apparently have a blast.

HAHAHAHA the first 18 posts of this thread were epic! Good job gentleman



Craig...if you dont know how the lift ticket and season pass system works at a hill and are so gullible you believe what these fucks are saying you need to put off that instructor dream for about the next 7 years. First I would suggest learning to snowboard, then you need to absolutely love the fucking sport and get good enough to the point where you honestly believe that people would pay money to learn from you. I just started as an instructor...and honestly it has been non stop stress working it out with a second job just so I can just pay rent, because if you have any other responsibilities other than snowboarding working as a beginning instructor position is going to be rough rough rough.

So sit back, enjoy the ride and have fun and learn the sport for a while. Its much more fun that way.

While this thread is full of some of the most hilarious responses I've seen, there are excellent (serious) points.

Try snowboarding first before you make a life changing decision. Hopefully you'll love it as we all do. Visit UT if you haven't already. Feel it out and see if it's the place for you.

I commend you for three things:

Thank you for serving our country.

It's admirable that you're looking to change your life's path in a direction of (potentially) a passion.

Thank you for posting your naive and honest questions, as it really brought a lot of humor! I'm serious.

Oh and a fourth. Good job on getting through the shit that landed you where you are today. It doesn't sound like you let it get the best of you.

Good luck on whatever you choose to do.
