All I can say is I plan to move to either Vail or Breck in the future.

Both are going to suck for jobs. Though South Lake Tahoe has the casinos, so there is more employment opportunity there. Of course Heavenly kind of sucks.

Vail/Beaver creek = $$$. One of the most pricey spots out there. Only Aspen costs more. You might look at living in Minturn or something like that.

You want the truth? Ok here it is most girls will have diseases and be passed around more than a rolled up 20 dollar bill at a coke party but they will have coke stuck to them at some point. Most locals will hate you at first and not want to ride with you especially if you can't hang. Hot tourists don't give a shit about scummy mountain locals 98% of the time that 2% of the time they're looking for some Joey Chadwick who sucks at life and wears Ed Retardy clothing. The cost of living is going to be insanely high you're going to work some shitty job that doesn't pay shit and live on ramen and free nature valley bars.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!:confu sed:
How old are you out of interest? I worked at Keystone in 2001 and I found the locas friendly enough. You will meet plenty of people in resort to hang out with. Locals are harder to crack and often have a holier than thou attitude. Some locals don't bother with new people (speaking from Banff experience here) because they get sick of meeting people who leave a short time later.

I have found it hard to meet people in Banff as it is such a transient town.
Also the work situation will imporve the longer you are there. If you are passing through don't expect anything better than minimum wage.
Having said that I prefer not knowing many people in town and having many hills nearby to knowing heaps of people in my old town but having nothing to do. If that makes sense?

If I could work in the US I would be going to Breckenridge. Seemed the least resorty of all the hills I visited in CO.

ANYWAYS

I'd say Tahoe, you'll get a bit of a city in south lake tahoe so you should be able to find some business there. You've got a broad range of mountains within 30-40 minutes, and alot a bit north from you. You can also drive down to Mammoth which is like 3 hours(i think?). It's also somewhat cheap as far as season passes go. Sierra&Northstar have a season pass working for both mountains for 399$, and it is unlimited for Sierra & Unlimmited at northstar for all but saturday.

Personally I've never been to colorado, but i can tell you that tahoe's a fun place with awesome resorts.
