Damn Andrew, sweet gig :rock: Pretty sure I saw Ray on the discovery channel :lol:

I work in online retail, it pays the bills and allows for ample time off. In the winter I like to telecommute from the East Side :wink: I hope to align my day job more closely with my passions and interests one day...

Just a glimpse of what goes on at a ski resort in the summer.
This is a usual tower rebuild for us, sorry no shots of actually lowering any equipment.

The winch.

The real work goes on up there.

The "little" grove.

Our forklift.

A combo of residual snowpack (photo is from October), glacial melt and runoff from heavy fall rains.
