I need info about the ski industry (ski manufacturing)
I have to research a job for school.
I need info about how much I would make owning and operating a small private ski company for a living.
I need rough estimates of overhead, materials, and profit.
If anyone is in the industry and can give me some numbers or other info
that would be fantastic (feel free to pm me with info if you dont want
to tell the world by posting below.)
Also, I'm not just combining skiing with school because I have nothing
better to do... I actually do want to do this for a living.
I was thinking something along the lines of Line at the beginning.
PM iggyskier he is in the middle of doing this and can definitely give you info

PMed... but i still need info.
i guarantee you that you would not be making any money for some time. all money you make would go back into your company. you wouldnt make a dime until you made a name and sold skis by the shit loads.
shit don't concern you son

^^ Ah, but would I make enough to pay for rent, gas, food, and a season pass? Aka... the essentials. I dont really care about rolling in cash. There are more important things. ...like skiing.
precisely. I understand your love for skiing and your desire to be involved in the industry for the rest of your life, because that's what i'm looking to do as well. but making your own company and selling skis and persuading a relatively small market (compared to other venues) is hard work. Don't expect to make anything in the first several years, but keep at it. live off of potatoes, macaroni, top ramen, and canned beans, and invest what you have into your business. if you don't put your all into it, you probably won't succeed. it takes a lot of dedication and research, and you have to at least have some varying shop skills (metal and wood working gives you a solid background to work off of) to get a pair of skis pressed and ready to go. Did i mention cost of materials? jesus. Can't give you an idea of money figures, but for most areas of ski product (skis being the hardest) don't expect it to be a smooth road.
In the 5th grade i asked a girl out and then ran away as fast as i could. It was awesome.
