    I'm getting screwed here and just curious how bad?
    Been here 17 years running the Nastar Program and
    putting on events....ie. X-Games, US Extreems for alpine
    Tele and snowboard, COSMIC race, MCI downhill, Nor ams,
    Ussa events.....etc, and I found out they have hired head coaches
    for alpine, Big Mt. and snowboard who are making $5/hour more
    than I am. Terrain park supervisor in his first year is making
    $3/hour less than I am.
    I was told my wages are based on the industry average
    but I'm not buyin it.

    Now that is funny

    If you want to ask for a raise you need to present some facts. If you think your not getting the norm for the industry then do your research If you can present in a clear calm way what your worth then they may listen.

    Well.... I get (I think) $7.50 an hour, but I don't always punch in. In fact, I rarely do for normal everyday public Nastar. If we have a big group race where I will be doing a lot of course work, I do punch in.

    I'm in it more for the benefits. Free pass, discounted draft beer in the bar and a race department locker room where I can store all my ski gear.

    Last year I made $240.00 for the season.

    Not many on the board that have a position like you. If they do then they porbably arnt in your are and then your not comparing apples to apples.

    Just to speculate they probably got ya where they want ya. What I mean is that job openings like yours may not be to plentiful or else you would have been long gone. So if you stay then they can pay you what they want to pay you. Its simple supply and demand. And to flip it around if you were to leave they could probably fill your spot with out a pay increase. Many hungry people out there theses days.

    Part of your "get rich quick" scheme, no doubt?

    :-D :D

    Not many like you either Mr Close, who basically do it for free. Whadda ya figure, about $1.00/hour when all is said and done?

    Thanks from all of us.
