chupacabraman Msg me if you need any Revy info. I've been in the region for 11 years... 4 in Revelstoke.

I was directed to the BCclassifieds from another thread and, from what I've found, unless I'm missing something, these listings seem very reasonable:Rental listings on Revelstoke Times Review : local classifieds, buy and sell locally, cars, furniture, pets, real estate, merchandise and more.

Some listings are cheaper than what I pay now in Boulder, CO (granted, Boulder has an absurd rental market).

161lip I'm majoring in English and Philosophy. I have a pretty background in Spanish, though. The application process isn't too rigorous. The initial applications asks a number of questions about your medical, legal, and personal background. After that, you're contacted by a regional representative who conducts an interview. If you make it past the interview, then you just wait to submit medical documents, and a legal background check. All in all, I highly suggest applying 16 months before you want to take off. I began applying in Feb.

So, I will be graduating from the University of Colorado in December. I have been accepted to serve in Central/South America for the Peace Corps, beginning 06/13, after which I intend to join the Foreign Service.
Btw, gratz on getting accepted into the Peace Corp, I'm thinking about doing the same thing (probably serving in the same area too). What is your major, and how was the application process? I'm thinking of doing it after grad-school.

161lip Yes, what've you said is definitely true. As someone who wants to ride for only one season, I want to know what I need to get by. How much should I save?

I know that I'm not going to be rolling in cash. I'm OK with sacrificing that for a year, if it's realistically feasible (redundancy?).

After my Revelstoke affair, it's time to lay it down for the man

All I can say is that for those who choose to be skibums or temporarily take up the skibum life, you are going to be living on meager means. Some people have it made, but those people are an exception to the rule (certainly helps to be a trustifarian , lot's of those around here).

It's just something you should expect, everything has it's advantages and disadvantages. The skibum life is all about riding, and you end up sacrificing material wealth to meet that goal.

161lip Thanks for the help so far, guys.

I know there are many areas more close to home, such as the ones mentioned in your post, especially Wolf Creek and Silverton.

However, I am kind of romanticizing BC. I've lived in Colorado all my life. It'd be exciting to go out of state, out of country even.

ColoRADical, I'll keep your comments in mind; maybe staying in my beautiful state is actually the right course of action.

Anyone out there live in Reve?

Colorado are you serious? Clearly you have never been to the interior BC.


OP: Revy is the place you want to go I promise. You could get a split and access the most insane terrain there is. Hopefully you enjoy face shots, Pillow Lines, and steeps.

Justin For the terrain you are looking for Revy is the place. Tons of pow and long tree runs. I haven't seen any other place like it for trees.
