There's not many pictures of this winter because I did not feel like taking them!

Ben here....as you most people know I went to Montana again for the winter. This place has become my home base to make money when  I'm not on the move.  Partly because its just so damn easy to get a job here, low cost of living and a huge mountain.  Its so easy to get a job that  I did not have one job interview and I had 3 jobs.  For me this was a super busy winter because I really wanted to make money for my next trip so I ended up getting three jobs and working 7 days a week.  This schedule did not allow alot of time for snowboarding all though I did get to go as much as I wanted.  The conditions this year were not the best but I still had a good time.  I ended up renting a couch in a two bedroom apartment with 4 other people.  It was an interesting winter since most of my roommates were under the age 22.  Since my bed (couch) was the living room I slept when they did and got up when they did.  Small price to pay for cheap rent on the mountain.  Life in a ski resort is pretty simple......Work, snowboard, drink and repeat.  Since I worked all the time it was mostly work for me.  I did take one job that required me to cut my hair above the collar of my shirt.  Not wanting to cut off my hair completly I had my 21 year old roommate cut it and I then had a blond bob.  I then became known as Medieval Ben, Prince Valiant (from Shrek) and Hanson (MMMM BOP!)  My hair has now grown back but the emotional scars may never heal............ 
       I did have one sad point this winter..one of my friends that  I worked with hit a tree snowboarding and died.  He was loved by all and we will miss him.  He died doing what he loved.
    So thats that, I did not really like my jobs this winter (all 3 were waiting tables) and I missed Chelise badly so when the season got close to ending....I took off and went to Vegas.
I must admit my I was super lazy when it came to taking pictures this season, I did include a picture of my friend Edgar that passed away, the picture was taken last year.  The rest of the pictures are just random moments that I actually got my camera out!  Enjoy!
