I’ll let you in on a secret. I hate getting up before the sun rises. My alarm goes off. It’s pitch black, cold and I really, really don’t want to get out of my warm blankets. But I do, semi-regularly, to go on sunrise adventures.
Believe it or not, being a ski or snowboard instructor isn’t all powder days and partying. Welcome to the secret world of instructing where we work hard, are frequently poor and have to deal with way too many bodily fluids.
