I'm a college sophomore the University of Wisconsin. I would enjoy taking an entire year off from school to ski bum, but I don't think it is the best long-term option. So, I had an idea: what if I could spend my winter break ski bumming? I could live the dream for a month without compromising my chances of graduating in four years. I do realize that affordable lodging and some type of employment could be hard to come by since I am only available for a month. These two things are necessary because money is definitely an issue. Oh yeah, and it would be nice if the job included a season pass or some kind of lift ticket deal because I can't afford the amount of days that I aim to ski.
As far as the mountain goes, I'll be happy as long as it gets a reasonable amount of snow(I'm looking to go west) and has a fair amount of advanced/expert terrain. I am assuming that snow and terrain will be much easier to find than a one-month job and sub let.
So, my goals are to work, ski a lot, and come close to breaking even financially on the deal.
Has anyone done this? Think it is possible??
