Thinking of taking a slug of time off this winter to go ski (as in up to 3 months). Wouldn't be working in this time (bar a bit of evening wifi connection). I know all the evils of Vail Resorts but Epic pass is looking like a strong contender with an MCP possibly to fill in the gaps (know I have to trigger pull soon on this). So a broad itinerary might be 5-6 weeks Colorado, 1-2 weeks Utah & Jackson (if I can make the gathering) 4 weeks Tahoe. Early Jan - March. Obviously might wait until early season snow flies to determine direction of travel and worse case if where I'm at happens to be getting skunked might move on early.
Main question is what's the likelihood of snaring house shares/sublets for a month at a time nearish ski areas (thinking Frisco/Dillon, Eagle/Edwards type places rather than in the resort towns themselves). Could probably be creative with Hotwire and Priceline and/or cheaper motels with weekly rates to make it work otherwise but I think I'd rather have a kitchen and roommates if possible (not that I can't entertain myself). Realise this is a short notice play, no-one who has the prospect of signing up a season long tenant will be interested in this but am I completely nuts? Will I get lost in craiglist hell of checking out an endless stream of bottom of the ladder housing rejects? Or as I'm hoping, in a ski season, there are always people getting hurt, moving on etc so some short term opportunities.
House trained, reasonably sociable but with no drugs, no alcohol problems no pets, slight ski dependency issues etc etc in case you've got any leads
