What do you do, to support your family and your skiing (habit)? Or is it just a annual few vacation days to the mountians?
I am semi-retired, pick up a few odd jobs to suppliment retirement income, usually ski a few long weekends at the (larger?) midwestern ski areas, 6 or 7 days in the western mountains, and patrol a couple of days a week at the local small hill. Around 40 to 50 days per season total, counting the the patrol days.
