Hi ski friends,
I have a quick question and if anyone has a moment, would love your insight! I've always regretted not taking a gap year in between college and graduate school to live in a ski town and bum for a season. Luckily, I have a job that affords me considerable flexibility in my working environment, and I'm thinking about spending 2-3 months on a mountain next year. I need some advice as to where would be the best fit for this kind of escapade.
A little insight: I'm an advanced skier (east coast standards), early 30's and single. While I am interested in having world-class skiing at my fingertips, a great social environment is also paramount, since I'll be traveling and living alone (and on the hunt for skiing buddies). My hope is to find somewhere to rent for a few months at a moderate cost while being near a mountain (or two or three?) where I wouldn't get bored with the terrain.
Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks!
