    $20/hr to patrol with no experience. There are supervisors with 10 years experience who don’t make that.

    Regular substitute teaching plus tutoring? Long term subbing for teachers on maternity leave etc.? Imagine with STEM training you might find some demand. Also could be a decent fit with shop work hours or other gigs.
    Damn, we're in a tight spot!

    I'd look into the GIS analyst thing. That should clear $20/hr, I'd have to think. I you are rusty: since you are a student, you can get an esri license free for a year (and there is tons of free data available from esri as well), so you can refresh your skills. This is assuming esri is what you're familiar with, of course (but even if it isn't, it should be, esri being the most prevalent GIS software out there).

    It might well wind up being in Reno, but there's a good chance of scoring at least some remote-work ability.

    You could try and line up a short-term consulting gig. Or you could bend ethics a little and not tell your would-be employer you're planning on leaving (not that unethical, really - you'd just be giving the standard, two weeks' notice).

    No wonder they need teachers in the Reno area.

    Hi ak_powder_monkey! May I suggest that instead of overrated, overhyped and overpriced Sierra Nevada that you "think outside the box" and instead relocate to the northeast, home of the gnarliest snowriding in the USA? I would proffer that all things considered,the northeast is the clear choice. The riding is more challenging here due to the variable conditions, the snow is better due to the cold temperatures, more consistant snowfall as well as superior snowmaking (and LOTS of water for the snowmaking systems) as well as a truly more enriching urban and mountain lifestyle. Also the wages are higher, the culture is superior, the history is rich and the "Norman Rockwell" factor is prevalent everywhere you turn.The terrain is truly fabulous, the partying is unmatched anywhere(can you say "hot New Jersey Italian babes?"). If you can shred here, you can shred ANYWHERE. When you score your first Killington powder day in "Anarchy", "The Throne", "Chop Chop" or "Patsy", you will be grinning from ear to ear, I promise you!. You will also find that the clientele(as well as your co-workers) will tend to be more educated and well-rounded, not your typical one-dimensional Tahoe yahoos. Okemo, Stratton, or Killington Vermont would be better than Idaho in every way!
    I would also like to take this opportunity to formally invite you (as well as all TGR Maggots, NewSchoolers, Pugskiazoids, jongs and lurkers alike) to come join our fun-loving but responsible bunch of snowriding aficionados at http://forums.alpinezone.com/. I think most all of you will find that our seasoned moderators "keep the bar high" by maintaining a sense of order and decorum, while encouraging quality discussion about our favorite pastime. I can assure you that "newbies"'(jongs) are welcomed with open arms by our entire community(unlike here at TGR), and there is no "hazing period" or rudeness tolerated. We also have superior bandwidth and response times on our 502g superfibre network as well as a state-of-the-art virtual blade server farm with 5000 terabytes of virtual disk space for your photos, blogs etc. It may take a small amount of getting used to, as we do have reasonable standards as far as language and image posting that are strictly enforced. The registration is easy and painless, and the rules will be explained in detail during the process. I will warn you however up front that registering an ALIAS is strictly "VERBOTEN", and something we have zero-tolerance with. If you are tired of the juvenile goings-on at TGR and Newschoolers and yearn for a snowriding forum that matches your maturity level, all I can say is: "Come join the fun"!

    I was going to respond with 'how good are you with swinging a hammer?' The union trade halls are completely empty from the Pacific Ocean to Denver. Carpenter apprentices start out somewhat decently, and ramp up quickly if you're good. But you have to work hard and long hours and use your body.

    Well, this part is somewhat true I guess (except of course: places that get a shit-ton of snow on a regular basis). I was born and raised in the NE, and I do agree: it was a good place to learn to survive shit conditions (when I go back to visit, I am never, ever, tempted to bring skis).

    But I am sure you're correct: way better skiing than Tahoe.

    P.S. Alpinezone is a weird name for a site about a region with almost no alpine terrain.

    P.P.S. Your FAQ is broken

    I concur...something just isn't adding up here. Once you get to the bottom of this, post your findings, whether here or in a new thread. Inquiring minds wanna know, afterall, no?

    No experience at a major tahoe resorts gets you a whopping $14 an hour. Going to take you close to a decade to break into the $20's.

    Good times.

    Reno/Tahoe are desperate for skilled construction work. There is a real shortage of labor, and tons of construction. You can definitely make the money you want doing that.

    The schools in Tahoe and Reno also need people, but your timing constraints are pretty tight. You could find substitute teaching gigs. Zirkel hooked up some good links.

    Working at a shop/service jobs/resort jobs are not where the money is at around here. There are lots of seasonal jobs, but few that pay over $20/hour.

    Housing is way cheaper in Reno than up in the Truckee-Tahoe area. Lots of work down there too.

    But you need to move here before anyone is going to hire you. Commit!
