Lil_G-nuslot's of people seem to miss that I study and there's barely time besides studying and working to go ski... so yah, I feel lucky if I can afford the fucking expensive season passes in Switzerland, but thanks for informing me that getting a job is so easy lol
Sooo, you're saying that you don't have an extra 4-8 hrs in the week to work at a shop to get prodeal? That could be one day or two half-shifts. You're in school all summer long? You don't think you could bring some study material to a ski shop? (you could) You ever consider that you can work at a hill, get prodeal, shred on your ski breaks, or even get a job like coaching or park crew that lets you rip all day? I get that its hard to balance work, school, skiing, and maybe having a second job but I can assure you that anyone who is a successful student/athlete/skier gets their shit done in the classroom, at work, at career oriented interships, and on the hill. Anybody living the grind in a ski town is pretty sure to have 2-5 jobs while also working on some sort of schooling (ski instructing, guiding, medical certs, sommelier certs, cooking courses, photography/video courses, or saving for grad school while skiing, working nights, and studying for entry exams). Why are you asking people for help/advice when your just gonna shut down the most popular/common answer to your problem. Thousands of people all over the world are in a similar place as you when it comes to trying to balance school, skiing, personal finances, and more, but the difference is most people hunker down, get their shit done, and figure out a way to make it work for themselves. Whining on the internet and bashing everyone who gives you constructive criticism sure isn't gonna help. You're a good skier and honestly I was rooting for you at the beginning of this thread, but
to be perfectly honest your not doing yourself any favors. Everybody tells you that shop/mountain life is the best way to get discounts and meet the people who can put you on flow, and you just whine that you have no time. Well, sorry then bud. No hookups for you.
