I know for a lot of NSers, being a ski guide at a heli or cat skiing operation would classify as a dream job. I am one of those NSers. While searching the internet for info about ski guides and what it would take to become one, i stumbled apon this interesting essay/article.
Professional ski guide Donny Roth gives us a small glimpse of what the life of a professional ski guide is like from first hand experience.
Its a pretty good read and shows both the ups and the downs of guiding.
