take this oppurtunity. i did
last winter my dad retired early decided to move to mexico. something i was not into at all. i was comming up on my last semester of hs and spending it in mexico with no friends was not my idea of awesome. suprisingly my mom was the one who told me to graduate early, and even suggesting working at a ski resort, for the winter, i grew up skiing in utah because of family so that was my main destination, particulary alta, i went on this site ( www.coolworks.com) and they had a list of ski resorts that were hiring, (ca,mt, nv,co,ut) i applied at alta, and suprisingly got the job, so i graduated high school jan 10 last year and headed out west for the rest of the ski season working as a lifty,
im in school now, at university of vermont, and all i can say is that taking that time of was the best choice i ever made, it was hard to go back to the real world after the season ended because i was leaving such an unreal world.
if you plan to graduate early, i strongly reccomend it, and if you have interest in working at a ski resort, alta was perfect, they provide you with lodging and meals ( they take it out of your pay check) and you get a free pass, you have two days off and on one of those days, you get a voucher and go over to snow bird.
the two bum things for me ( but werent bad) was that i was the only girl living with 37 guys, and when everyone goes to the bar ( im assuming youre not 21), youre stuck back at the buckhorn ( the dorms)
feel free to pm me if you have questions.
seriuosly do this
i am also considering graduating early. they way i feel is that high school is just a huge waste of time that is just "required" to keep kids off the streets and give them "social experiance". i seriously don't feel as though i ever learn anything which makes me really angry because i still do want to learn.
I live in Girdwood, AK.
i've never heard of flight school here with chugach powder guides, but there might be. i would do your research before you make any huge decisions
