Hahaha such an old fashioned approach. I have a very comfortable job (/claim) in the IT sector and I've never even looked at College.
This is a really good point, especially the last two sentences.
I've never gone to University (College) and I work in IT for the Government earing a deeeeelightful salary. Sure, I don't get to ski every day but my mates and I make a concerted effort to get to the slopes as often as possible. I use about 80% of my annual leave on trips to the mountain every year and probably get 50-60 days on the hill.
I guess my point is this, you can ski more working on the mountain but by having a 'proper' (ie office) job you gain the means to ski AND have a life outside of the snow season.
At the end of the day mate its your life, do what makes you happy - but still have some thoughts for the future.
My input is you can do both. I sacrificed a lot to get to this stage of my life. I lived in Aurora, CO for 7 years in a not so desirable area to get to a point where I can travel and ski. I used to commute 2 1/2 hours each way to ski on the weekends just for the love of it. After getting my career to the point I wanted to achieve I have a comfortable life; and I can now do more of the things I enjoy. I moved closer to the mtns in a nice area of Denver, set my own hours at work so I can sneak up for 1/2 days during the week, and during the ski season rent a place in Vail. It's worth the hard work at first cause you know what you’re working towards. (Sorry for the rant but you can do whatever you set out to achieve in life.)
