College Grad Moving out to Vail/Breck... suggestions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey Everyone,

 

I'm a junior at the University of Michigan and will be graduation early and moving out to either Vail/Breck next ski season (2012/2013). Any suggestions in regards to Breck vs. Vail (leaning toward Breck because it's much more low-key)? Also, has anyone done this before, and if so what kind of jobs did you do/where did you live? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

Why those two resorts?     Cheap passes aren't a very good reason IMHO.

I'll have an EPIC pass, so it ends up being pretty reasonable.. around $600 to ski the entire season I believe. Wanted a Colorado resort with great skiing and a good town. Also wanted to be near I-70 so that I can take trips to Silverton/other mountains more easily.

So are you looking for work after graduation or just a season of skiing? Do you want housing suggestions? Are you after affirmation of your plans?

Kneale, thanks for posting. Not after affirmation, I will definitely be out there next season. I'll just be spending the ski season in CO. Obviously very early in the process, but just wanted to get some info about housing, jobs, etc. ahead of time. Any suggestions in regards to housing? Also, I'd love be an instructor for the season but not sure if I'll have enough time to get certified and instruct. I'll be there next year from January - April.
