However, if i don't end up planning a trip to New Zealand next year I may consider applying for a resort job for a season depend where I'm at with my current job.

I'd definately work as a beginner instructor or something if I lived near one. I would get my license if it meant free trips. Just to get 10% off tickets would not be worth it, though since I already have another job.

I'M IMPRESSED! I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WORKING ON NEXT SEASON! I'M JUST WONDERING WHAT EVERYONE IS DOING NOW TO GET READY FOR THE SEASON? I'VE BEEN DOING THE TRAMPOLINE, WATER SKIING, AND EVEN SANDBOARDING, (WHICH I MIGHT ADD SUCKS IN NE, UT AT LEAST I'M NOT GETTING HURT) I'm really looking into something that I saw on U-Tube. The SG5 snow maker, I want to say it's from snowathome? not sure though. I'm seeing it every where. It's like making a back yard terrain park. COOL! Something to make snow to cover everything before nature comes along, and that way I was thinking I could have it all down before I look like a clutsy snow biff in the public eye. LOL My question to everyone is... have you seen or heard anything about this? Does anyone have one that they can explain more about it? It looks simple enough to set up, and heck, it makes snow for me and only me in my backyard, and I can practice, I'm looking forward to anyones opinions. Don't want to waste money. Let me know what you think. Email me, or post, I'm really interested in the extra practice at home.

My goal for this season is to find some lines that I can access with my snowmobile and just hammer them when it dumps. It'll be the first year in a long time that I don't buy a season pass at either JH or Targhee. Just getting tired of paying for something that I have nearby for free.


Resort jobs...Depending on the policies of the resort, lifties can get a lot of turns in. Teaching is another option, and a great way to increase your skills. Most schools do clinics for the instructors when its slow. There are also some ski-town businesses off the resort that offer passes with employment, but I personally like working on-mountain better.

Work on not killing myself in the park this year, unlike last year...that was a total disaster! Hopefully, make it out to the mountains more than once! And hopefully meet up with another snowboarder from sb.com
