Learn a skill or 2 (this is achieved through hard work), grow up, and try not to be such a disrespectful punkass.

I have not heard of people paying off sales staff on the east. But i would be lying if i said i didn't get all buddy buddy with them and make sure they knew who I was and what I was good at. This and all my return clients is why I was the most requested.

Ends up being a decent chunk of change, roughly 3000 a month but I will have no life as my only day off will be spent cleaning my house and shopping for the food of the week.


anyone have any tips on life? I hate this feeling of being a loser let me explain.

either I am working so hard I have no time or energy for anything else
or I am broke and lets face it- Being broke is pretty shitty way to live.
I'm referring to OP. I will die doing my blue collar work, proud, tired and happy. If you're trying to get paid, there's no shortcuts, try white collar; although usually people who complain about work in blue collar world don't necessarily get very far there either.

I'd still start with not being an entitled punkass, put that shit to bed and you can start figuring out what the grownups are up to.

love your post about AASI !! i'm going for my 2 and agree about the attitude and bs that is required. they want everyone to ride the same way period. No consideration for anything else you fit their mold or go home empty. its very humbling attending clinics or testing.

snowolf, your comments make me curious what type of instructing is done at my local resorts...i have not been in a lesson in 5 years and after learning the basics i got better and just made my own style. That part about AASI trying to make boarding skiing is crazy. Boarding is cool because it's a lot looser and more about creativity than perfection and utter smoothness.

OP: Don't work for $12 bucks an hour doing anything...period. you will never have the time or money to be able to do all of the fun shit you want while having your own place and food working for 12 bucks an hour.

wow, that was completely unnecessary. Why don't you come up with some better retorts than petty meaningless insults.

I don't think you'll ever make any money working at/for a resort unless you offer them something they can't replace. The resort game is all about real estate. Snow sliding is a fashion to people who bring the resort a lot of money, it's only a passion (and even a way of life to the dedicated few) for the rest of us shrewd folk and because we're shrewd, the resort industry won't ever care that much. Not the big resorts, anyway.

HA! Thats ridiculous! If i was in a lesson and someone was showing me how to get through a mogul field and fell 5 times I wouldn't take a word of advice from them after wards. I dont care if their "body movements" are pretty if they cant actually make it down the hill.
