Careers in ski industry...
Kind of a longshot but thought id look into it. I am looking at careers since I am transferring to a university this fall and haven't found anything I feel strongly about. Skiing is really one of my true loves and being in the industry would be a dream job. I was wondering what types of careers there are...maybe something like resort director, ski guides, tourism agent and the like. Or possibly work for a ski company, that would be cool.
Are these jobs hard to get and make a career seeing that skiing is basically just a winter activity in most of the world? Any other cool career ideas out there? I am open to many ideas.
If you're working at a resort, the work is seasonal, but most resorts have summer activities and junk too, so you can work year round if you're at a resort like vail or whistler or lake louise...
getting a job in the industry industry involves selling your soul and working your ass off only to find yourself sucking someone's dick for the rest of your life... but, it offers many many benefits...and mad ridiculously hard to get a job in.
Skiing is the single most rad form of motion attainable by a human being.
ENHANCED MEDIA is super jazzy.
yeah theres jobs and you'll love the skiing life- but very few people make it past their early 30's in the area- they meet someone they , want to settle down, own a house someday- and most industry jobs don;t pay enough for that- but hey good luck you work hard you might be able to find one and live the dream the rest of us have everynight.
Do out the work and make enough to afford to go skiing whenever you want.
A business degree for business positions for a company, resorts and ski companies all need people running the business. Although this may not be as directly related as you would like.
Jer: I would slam my cock in a car door to ride right now......fucking summer.
i bet a mechanical/materials engineering degree would allow you to develope new stuff

i have 2 jobs in the industry and its no cake walk. Im working 7 days a week and im working like a dog. Im a ski instructor and work at a ski shop as a shop tech/sales. I still barely make enough money to go on all my ski trips and afford my gear with a little spending money left over. If i didnt live with my parents there is no way i could only have jobs in the industry, theres just not enough money when your at the lower end. You have to be a shop owner to make any kind of money and even then their not making alot.
what the fuck is a signature?
Hmm, I may be better off just getting a good paying job and finding a lot of spare time to ski...
yea, get a summer job that pays mad cash then just ride off the money you make in the winter. Dont get me wrong working in the industry is sweet and has its benifits but without knowing a lot about it you wont get far. Id say get a part time job ay a shop in the winter and learn, then work your way up
