on an american website, looking for a "mate" indicates you are looking for a mating partner...  not friend.  hence the video above

haha, love the video, yeah i have been keeping a close track on the weather an predictions, its literally just started to change and the average temp is set to drop a few degrees in the next few weeks aye.

i actually might have found a few people there my mates but i never though to ask em because they didnt seem like the ones who would go, i assumed all my surfy mates would come seeming we went to Queenstown together but they wanna go to bali. already been there dont rate it that high aye.

yeah dude if your gonna be up for a few day trips, give me a call and maby you can swing the group a hundred or so and you can just crash at our lodge were booking the matterhorn and we will most probably be smashed most nights at the pubs so we will only be in the room for to sleep

i try and do a bit of everything and make the best of the week but i always end up at the park at the end of the day, i got myself a burton hero so hopefully ill be popping off everything on the mountain

true i have never driven to perisher before but i drove to falls creek last year with my family just after i got back from queenstown so i should be sweet for the drive now i hopefully have some blokes to head down with,   trying to talk the new misses into it as well lol.

haha im soo keen im practicing getting max pop from my ollies on the carpet

Keep an eye on this thread as well
 
 
Will be organising a few Sierra Crew days and at the current rate and forecasts there will be a couple in August ...
 
I work at Perisher - so I am around pretty all the time. Can give you the tour of the best spots .... not a 20 something, but I still ride like one. 
 
Powder is my choice

Pretty sure 8 is New Zealand. I think someone might be calling you a sheep shagger...

There are different qualification frameworks in different countries ... Canada has CASA. Most countries will recognise each others qaulification framework. If you compelte you APSI qualifications in Oz you will be able to get work in other countries.
 
Or you can just go to Canada and get your CASA instructor qualifications whilst over there ... it all costs money. I don't know about the CASA costs, but APSI entry level in OZ ill set you back about $500.
 
Ensure you are a competent boarder before getting into this.

i have no clue, i would assume the pay would not be awesome seeming you literally get to board for a living, i think its more a lifestyle choice then a job

as an instructor would you have to be paying for your own accommodation?? if you where i wouldnt think it would be to expensive

What a great lifestyle choice
money doesnt mean a lot if your doing what you love and what makes you happy
