I’m sure the academy has faced that situation before. I’m sure you’ll spend the rest of the semester making kick-ass arts and crafts in the ski lodge. Or perhaps, hot chocolate and flaming rum toddies for your non-klutz classmates?
Snowboarding academy? Yeah, that sounds either made up or a scam. Go to the mountains that allow snowboarding and find an instructor, which I know they have. Would save your parents a ton of money. Though this also sounds like a massive brag and at that point, you are just a prick. Either way, don't much feel sorry for you.
$20,000 is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on snowboarding lessons, even for a whole winter. I'm a ski instructor and we charge nowhere near that much...
I think it might actually be a school that does regular academics on top to snowboarding lessons. There is a school in park city Utah that their summer break is actually over the winter so the students can ski/snowboard without interrupting their academics. Since that payment is on college tuition levels I'm assuming it's an actual school that also does snowboarding.
Sounds like parents with more money than brains, throwing money at a spoiled child. Happy for ALL of you.
You need some serious therapy, because you've obviously got some issues to people with high income. OP is somehow spoiled for the money essentially going to waste making them feel worse than the broken collarbone. Their parents are dumb for wanting to make their kid happy and give them a once in a lifetime experience. But somehow they all deserve it just for having money, while you admit that you get pleasure from their suffering and misfortune. Being happy that people you know near-nothing about and have done nothing wrong are distressed is REALLY fucked up, no ifs, ands, or buts.
