Great! Our local, now closed but trying to get it open again hill, had a retired FS employee as our ski hill manager for years. At 70 something, he still skiied. Very healthy, athletic guy. My chiropractor said he was very impressed with his condition. Unfortunately, he passed away a few years ago. The way I want to go, active up to when my number comes up.
I really improved my skiing by working at the hill for four years. Still not that coordinated, but, I can go down about anything and have a good time, biting it.

Six of my fellow rescue divers on our dive rescue team are ski patrollers in Nor Cal. One of them is the ski patrol director. They are Fire Captains, Sheriff's Captain, and one sold his 3 marinas and is retired financially independent. All of them are 50+, a couple nudging 60. None of them need the money but they do it every year and I assume they will continue as long as they are physically able. Good for me because each year when I visit them, I have a place to stay and my own private ski instructors. I can definitely see the attraction.
Congratulations on your gig.
