Survey says: someone else is paying for it.
Marry a good partner that will help alot.
Partner needs to love to ski too.
Both become self-employed so you set your own schedule
Live close to a Mt. like I do in Bend OR area or anyplace like that.
Fish Alaska. Screw school.
All the money you make won't prevent your death anyway. Ski now.
I aerifacate lawns. Hard work. Lots of customers. No work in winter.
You will find a way if you really want to. I got 130 day last season. I don't have money. Just enough to pay the bills. Don't get a big mortgage! Buy a small cheap home. I buy used stuff all the time. Learn to tune all your own stuff. Etc. Don't go out and waste any money. Save and pinch.
Or get rich quick! Then retire.
Become a major grower. Get into roofing, or any trade like that. Seasonal work.
These are just a few ideas. Good luck!
