As for the money issue, I agree with Nolo...although it's not really the subject of this thread. (Maybe it is.)
I, like JASP, have given much away at no charge. And I love doing that. However, the cost has been high. Ultimately you have to end up somewhere where you can make a living. I've been in it a long time, and have not made much of a living in the ski teach biz. That's okay, but it also explains a bit about where some people basically HAVE to put their time.
This is why I'm so pleased that epicski.com is/has moved toward a better financial footing. In my view, it has changed, but not lost its character. That's pretty cool.
