a few of you have asked on the blog what i do at the ski resort, and i haven't really said, because it's nothing fancy. i work in the ticket offices and occasionally work outside greeting customers. it might not be fancy, but one thing i've realized is that this may be the first time the cold + darkness of winter really hasn't bothered me. not only am i keeping busy with work (and the 2 hour commute round trip), but my job is totally winter-season dependant, and even when i'm working indoors i am usually seated in front of a window looking out onto snow & selling an outdoor product. i wear a sweatshirt + sorels nearly everyday. and in some strange way i know this combination at work has made time during my least favorite season pass a bit more quickly.
