I'm finishing college and that's probably my last chance of a real extended vacations before I retire and I'm considering spending 3-4 weeks confined in a mountain and skiing as much as possible.
By what I can see, one of the biggest problems in skiing is that when people have time they don't have money and when they have money they don't have time. I've some money saved so that I wouldn't need to be working in the station but I can't afford paying 200+ per day in a hotel room with walking distance to the lifts, as I see in most resorts websites.
So, can anyone suggest a ski resort where I wouldn't need a car to access the lifts and that I could find a place to stay (could be shared and small, just need to sleep, shower and cook) for something around $50 bucks a day? Or maybe suggest how can I find it myself? Also let me know if you're looking for someone to share a lease.
As I'll be in SF in February I'm trying to find it in one of the Epic Pass' resorts "vail, beaver creek, breckenridge, keystone, heavenly, northstar, kirdkwood, arapahoe basin".
Thank you in advance.
