There are 2 things that I truly LOVE doing. One is riding my bike, all my bikes, BMX, Road and Dirtbike. The other is skiing. I've been skiing since I was 3 or so. Even breaking my leg the 1st time I ever went didn't deter me and I was 3 at the time. I requested a green and pink cast and actually got it. Kinda wierd, right? I used to wish to be as good as my cousin Jim who is a 4 or 5 years older than I. And last year when he was in town to visit we went skiing together and, I was better! In fact he said I was one of the best he'd ever skiied with which meant alot considering he's skiied all over the world.
Then back in highschool me and my bro started getting weekly passes out to Perfect North. Then I was getting a season pass the last few. Until 2 years ago when I became a ski instructor. I didn't need a pass anymore! Because ski instructors are badasses! So now I'm level 1 certified by PSIA and looking to go out west this winter with Jeff (another instructor). I wanted to go to Vail.
But it doesn't seem as though they are hiring instructors this year. So Jeff recently asked me about going to Mammoth instead.
Either way, I really can't go wrong. Both places are absolutely gorgeous and both get about 400" of snow a year. My problem now is I don't want to leave Kristi. Because, well, she makes me so happy. I was very upfront about the fact that I wanted to go out west for the winter when we 1st met. And she has been very supportive about it but, I can tell she'd rather me stay here. I wish this was easier but it is what it is. For now I can take refuge in the fact that ski season doesn't start until November which gives me 3 months to make a final decision.
