Ski bumming in Europe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I think this topic has come up; but I couldn't find it.

Has anyone done this or know about doing so? Possible? How much money is necessary? What sort of logistical things must be taken care of? Good places to do it?

I don't know how much it would cost but I can tell you that the exchange rate dollar/euro it's a real killer...

Depending on which places you like to hit count on roughly 350-400 Euros a week for lodging, food and lift tickets (no extras). I don't know good places to bum but here are some to ski:
Portes du Solei
Val d'Isere
Les Arc (Paradiski)
Serre Chevalier/La Grave
Zermatt/Cervinia/Saas Fee
Lots of bums are at St.Anton (Austria) and Verbier (Suisse), excellent places to ski besides!

Have fun out there! [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

In Sierra Nevada (Andalousie-Spain) Official website- unofficial website you can find a job as ski instructor or in pubs without many problems, the ski and night ambience is great.

The season started this year in November 22nd and will finish May 1st, is amazing how the snow lasts there, may be due to its high altitude 2200m to 3400m. And with a 30 km drive you arrive to Granada one of most beatiful cities in Spain. Sierra Nevada hosted the 1996 World Ski Champioships, we still remember Picabo Street who won the ladies downhill.
