    I've never had a problem drinking from them. Did it on a fairly regular basis when living in Switzerland.

    I've got one more week in the US of A, including a trip to Golden Saddle. What else should I be buying people? I've got way too much money burning a hole in my "splurge it on awesome things" pot.

    Nice off-centre handlebar setup!

    Are you sure you got one with the same blade material? They do a "Carbone" and "Inox". Carbone ones take a much better edge but are more fragile.

    I think being an instructor puts you in danger of destroying what you love. Get a job in a shop / cafe /hotel where they have decent shift patterns and go and ride for yourself!

    Currently doing one in Verbier! It's the best decision I've ever made! I'd say try and get a job with a local company rather than a UK operated one. That way you'll get paid a proper wage rather than just your accommodation and a tiny bit extra paid in sterling. I'm working for a ski hire shop out here doing a mix of deliveries, servicing and fitting. I get to ski 4 days a week in either the morning or afternoon (8:00 - 12:30 or 12:30- 17:30 shift) and a full day off.
