Yeah, I'm super depressed... this is my fifth year living here and I just don't want to ski as much... in fact I've only skied 9 of the 12 days the ski area has been open, and I only skied 6 days of backcountry before we opened. And of those 15 days thusfar, 8 of them I was forced to ski through this dreadful powder. Sooo depressed, someone save me.
If working in the industry is not your thing that's fine, but just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it can't work for others. I love my job, I've never been happier in my life and not just because I get to ski when I want for free, but also because I'm in a job that challenges me and keeps me happy professionally. To each his own.
