You can view this cartoon a dozen different ways. Most should make you think.

No doubt I love Frazz. I think his view of the world his hilarious and right on. This view of the ski industry is right on, so many different ways.

I teach Ski Area Risk Management at Colorado Mountain College in Leadville, Colorado in the Ski Area Operations Program. Most of those students (kids) are there to ski and have convinced their parents they are they for an education. (This is probably no different than most colleges.)

Most lift operators (lifties) and other entry-level workers at ski areas work two or three jobs to be able to stay in the mountains. I’m amazed at the hours they work at all those jobs and still have time to ski or board once in a while.

Working at a ski area is not skiing all day. Now days it means hoping to ski.

The rest of the outdoor industry is in a similar predicament. You love what you do, but the only way you can do it is if someone with a lot, more money pays you do to it, when they have the time.

Me? I picked time and got lucky with my work.

So you are faced with a dilemma. Enjoy your preferred occupation between surviving or change your direction in life and enjoy your preferred avocation between…..surviving.
