nah, i just went to the job fair and talked to them for a little bit. i was going to work in rentals, but picked instructing over it. their are a few people that come from other parts of the mountain (rentals, liftys, patrol) but most just sign up as their first job with the company. if you do want to become one, understand that you are not going to make as much money as you would a lifty or some other position. generally it is a lower wage job, but if you live out west you can make some pretty sweet tips, including gear and trips with the client. It is hard work and can be very frustrating, but if you want to do it, just jump in. you will go through a training course and they will pick the best ones out of that. not to mention the instructors are the only ones that really get to ride all the time as well as all the perks they get from companies.

so you have the 88. I don't know, most companies will only cover up to a year. they may cover it if the see that its a glue malfunction. but if you put damage in it and water got in, then it will more than likely be void. you can try calling them and telling them that its starting to delam, and they may just ask you to send it in. did you buy it from a shop?

so yesterday I got a grade 4 concussion.. apparently I was blacked out for like 5 mintues and had a seizure on the mountain.. hitting the biggest kicker in the park (I have hit it plenty of times before just fine), spinning a backside 5 (which I am still sketchy on), i guess i corked it way to much by accident and came down pretty much on the side of my head/face. I had a helmet on too but that didnt seem to do ****. cant snowboard for another 3 weeks according to doctor.. pretty much the rest of the season due to our lack of snow. I am bummed.

that helmet probably did more than you think. if you got hit that hard with it on, what would have happened without it?

Yeah, I imagine it stopped my head from cracking which is definitely good.

i've had more than one concussion with a helmet on. it they were from just doing stupid ****. the thing about them are you don't want to keep the to much longer after you have had a hard it. if its cracked its time to pitch it.

well yea, he says that too in the description but imo that one looks like it would last a long time and durable. There's one on yt for like $60 using some fake tile stuff for the top haha.

wood really wont last that long. thats why most resorts use steal. weather really is not something a plywood box is good with. even treated wood, you are going to have problems with warping and screws backing out. i have a wood shop in my parents garage, but after working with steal, i think it would less money overall just to use steal and a mig welder
