So as my already accepted application sits there saying "undecided" for a major, I was wondering if anyone had any advice for what to study and try for out there. A line of work that would offer a good (i don't have to be rich by any means) salary and would obviously be located near some awesome skiing. I just thought of the idea like two days ago and ahve a few years to investigate it but any starting tips or ideas for what to major in order to land a decent job and start up a life out there would be?
P.S.-I'm also writing a scholarship application essay and my goals in life is the topic so this is a good source of ideas.
here're two thoughts- i attended a fine university in vt. which had no sports of any kind, i found myself skiing so much i dropped out in about a month.
then, i attended a really nice school out in the hamptons, with gorgeous, glossy atlantic winter-surf, and i dropped out after about a calender year of spending my time surfing or taking the lirr into manhattan, to the transfer to newark airport, to the $19.99 people express flight to burlington, VT., where i kept my skis at my girlfriend's dorm.
upon dropping out, i immediately loaded up my car with everything that i couldn't pawn and drove to dillon, co. with my DH boards
you want my advice? school and skiing don't mix.
try to take a season or two off to pursue yer studies, or be a man and admit you're a skier, not a student.
any imbecile can get their ba/bs, etc., precious few of us can get over 100 days a season in at a great resort.
there is a third, and far cooler option, however.
contact the american college of switzerland, in lausanne, and apply for a ski resorts mgt. program. awesome skiiing nearby, you'll get creds while skiing, and you'll ski far finer terrain than anything you'll ever find in north america.
go east, young man.
