Default CO guys/gals: unusual request

Hey guys, I've got kind of an odd request.

Being that I'm out of a job and will probably like that for awhile. I was thinking I'd like to be snowboarding instrutor this season. I was hoping some/one of you had some connections up on the mountain. This is not a spur of the moment decision and I've done my research. For instance, I know that Vail already had their open house from this site.Vail boarding instructors

I even found out about accomodations here. Housing

I've been riding for about 4 seasons now and I'm very comfortable on most terrain. Although, I must admit I'm a little timid in a half-pipe.

I ready to commit to this, I was just hoping someone here could give me a helping hand. Or give me some odds on the realism that this could actually happen.

I'd hate to drive all the way out there, only to drive all the way back to Chicago.

Thanks
Mike

Basically, I'm hoping that someone on I-club has a connection on the mountain to help me get a job as a snowboarding instructor.

Do you know anyone?

I'd say keep your eyes open for 'hiring clinics' at the various smaller areas. I was a ski instructor at Sandia Peak in Albuquerque for three years - there was always a big hiring clinic in Nov./Dec. depending on whether there was snow.

Also, my experience showed that the snowboard instructors tended to be a bit flaky, and there were more openings to be had as the season progressed. Imagine -- thrashers getting fed up with trying to teach a overweight Texans to surf.

You <b>will</b> be teaching beginners near exclusively.

Just my 2&cent;

I worked at Keystone for 2 years and Breckenridge for one, and here's what's up. They usually do their hiring clinics 6 months in advance. Besides, the instructors were ALWAYS fighting for hours and didn't make much $. I could probably hook you up with Employee Housing at Vail, Keystone, or Breck cause I have connections at all of them. If you need a job, take lift operator or ticket scanner. You will be riding EVERY DAY. A lot. Trust me, I know.

BTW: Instructing sux, you do spend most of your day chasing down overweight Texans, and you never get to just go ride. Lots of jobs on the mountain.

Kick ass, this is exactly what I was looking for. Do the $200/month units go pretty quickly? I am soo ready to move for the season.

Do you have any idea how I might go about getting a job on the mountain as a lift operator or ticket scanner. I checked the sites I mentioned, but they didn't have any openings.

Or should I just show up...do they really need people that badly. I want to drive out after Christmas, before New Years. Do it seems feasible to have something in place by then?

I'm really excited about this prosepct...can you tell??

Let me know...
Thanks
Mike

newscooby,

I live in Vail but have zero connections at the resorts. Here is a link to the Vail Daily classifieds (click me) if that helps any. Feel free to drop me an email if you think there is any thing I could do to help you out.

Ben

Cool, thanks Avonrex.

I'm really anxious to see what wrxlvr can do for me. At the very least I can set up housing. Hopefully, he/she can help me find a job.

Thanks
Mike
