not even close even near the top of the pay scale like I am.......
Despite IMO being under paid vs other WC resorts. I do know this just this past year I made much much more than a uncertified instructor at my mountain. Enough that even in one year it would have cover the cost of every PSIA exam/clinic toward certification I had ever done including travel cost. Plus the unseen amount of tip difference between working Private lessons vs group lesson.
We have a ton or private business, and potentially the richest clientele in New England, maybe anywhere.
Yup, St. Moritz, Aspen, Deer Valley, to name a few, are all green with envy! You really need to get out of your back yard and discover the world.
