Okay so my life long dream is to work and play in Alaska even if its for only a season or two. The place just amazes me. Whether its the stories, movies, tv shows i see or hear it just sound Awesome. I'm Starting to get a long term plan together for it and need some help.
Here is timeline of my plan:
summer/fall 2012: Bust my ass for the BLM save shit ton of money for gear and classes
winter 12/13: Work for Buttermilk in Aspen as lifty for a 3rd season in a row
Checklist for season:
Take a Avy 1 course
Become way better skier (overall good skier but Im heading to Alaska. Need to up my game)
Demo every piece of gear on the market and get a bomber quiver or bomber set-up
Save some money up for spring trip to Alaska
Spring 2013: Take a month long trip to Alaska (if I can afford it) Ski around and fill locals with booze and pump them for Information on the best skiing areas in Alaska.
Summer 2013: Work my ass off and save money
Fall 2013: Hopefully pick out a place in Alaska that can be base and get a winter job
Winter 13/14: Hopefully ski some amazing mountains in Alaska for a season.
Problems with this plan:
Don't know the area.
Requires a really good vehicle or lots of money for transport
If I could get information on the better ski areas or ski towns to check out in Alaska I will forever give you +K.
Also any other comments like, I should take more classes of this type or do this to prep myself better will also receive +K
Thanks for the help NSrs !
