worked last season for the first time in a snow store,some of the same experiences as DingoSean meeting distributors, reps etc,... lots of mucking around when the boss wasn't around and there was no activity in terms of customers- watching and downloading Entourage in the store office, smoking weed out the back on thurs/frid nights, pizza , playing games like trying to hit certain ad promos with coathangers used for outerwear
just loved doing all the techy stuff though and talking about skiing in general and local resorts. Dealing with gapers sometimes was very annoying but you put up with it. Pretty much no promotion of freeskiing in the store though, but plenty of snowboarding.
i work on the east coast in jersey. all the time we get guys who think that there hard core cause they ski beaver creek and deer valley.
