Snowbird and Alta: One Of These Is Not Like The Other - Page 3

post #61 of 67

What would you do if you had a Mountain Collective?

I'll tell you what I'd do, man. Two resorts at the same time man.

I am sure most instructors on here get paid professionally. The humane resource dept. of most ski areas are operated by very professional folks. They print very professional looking pay checks.   

 

Most instructors make a living with their "expert-ness" on the slope. A good living? That is another question.  

 

Good-ness is in the eye of the beholder.

The new restaurant on the summit of Snowbird looks more significant when you see it from the mineral basin side.  It's gonna be good.  These photos taken Sep 30, 2015.
