Hello all, I hope this is in the right section. Im not a skier but would love to try. I actually snowboard, not the obnoxious pant sagging, snow scraping, park rat kind though. Im 20 years old and am at a crossroad where I have no idea what I want to do in my life. My passion is for the mountains, snowboarding, and freedom that it all provides. Lucky for me I live in South Jersey where there isnt a decent place to ride/ski for hours. I want to do something about that this upcoming season though. Im trying to figure it all out. I was thinking about Vail or South Lake. Although Im not sure what kind of job I should have (it doesnt matter about the job, I just want the most time to ride) where I should stay, I was thinking about staying for 1-3 months.Im not much of a partier so night life isnt a huge deal. I plan on having about 2500 by the time winter rolls around. I want this to cover the plane ticket, season pass, rent, public transportation, food etc. Any way if anyone wants to post some thoughts or ideas or is thinking of doing the same and wants to meet up please let me know.
