My advice would be to ask your dad for the ranger's number. :rolleyes:

Smiling at tourists. (Working the various info desks and whatnot.)
Building and repairing stuff.
Keep in mind that Rainier is only a short drive from major metropolitan areas. It gets PACKED, so there's a pretty high "working with the gapers" factor as well as "fixing the stuff the gapers break / mess up" factor.
What Joshbu said.
Sounds like an opportunity to earn some skiing funds for the 04/05 season, and spend time at one of the best places in the area.
Go for it man, call the ranger and set up an interview.
If you are at Paradise, that's where most of the tourons go, but at Sunrise or another spot you'll get a slightly more mountain-savvy crowd.

First off, if you dad is a "quak" (i mean psychitrist) and his patient is a ranger at the park, you may want to reconsider the job. Why did he loose his mind; you might ask.
If not, go for it. Having a job like that will open up alot of doors for you in the future.
There is definately no denying your abition, you should be thinking about skiing and you are thinking about summer employment.
