Just drive up and go to the one at Copper.
The one in Denver works better for my schedule.

So... you're saying you have room on the couch?
(or in the basement?)

linvillegorge I personally know only three people who have maintained the snow bum lifestyle for a sustained period of time (going on 12 years for all three). All of them are trustfunders who know they're set to inherit millions. They just have to wait it out. It makes it a little easier to "bum it" when you know serious financial backup is coming.

Yes there are people that are too stupid to realize that places like Breckenridge are in high demand and have a high cost of living. So they save up maybe a grand to move with and show up around this time of the year. They get here and realize that mud season isn't the best time to move when you have little saved money and don't know anyone. So they can't find a job as everyone has already staffed up with the locals for the off season or isn't hiring. They can't find housing because they don't have the necessary first, last, and deposit they need and don't have a job lined up.

Then you get the people that show up 2 to 3 months from now thinking they can just saunter in and find a place to live super easily because the season is here. But low and behold those with any brain locked in housing months ago so they would be set up for the season.

Does the housing up here and in places like JH suck? Oh hell yeah I just spent 2 months looking for a place. I was poached 4 times on various locations I had dialed in. I had to fight numerous people to find anything. I got lucky on my new spot that I'm about to move into because the girls that were there were allowed to pick who was going to replace them. I was also the only person sitting on a first and deposit so I could throw money at the place. That was $3,200 right there. Luckily the owner of the place has had it paid off since 1990 and it's all equity to him. I also signed a 2 year lease with just me on it to lock this place in at this rate. $1,600 bucks for a place one block off main street right in the heart of the arts district. I'm lucky and took a huge risk to get it. 2 blocks to the gondola, 1 block to all restaurants, and walking distance to everything.

But when I found out I got the place I had the girl that was next in line reach out to me and offer me $600 bucks plus I could sign a lease on her place. I had 4 other people get my number and send me angry texts about me getting it. I had 2 people hit me up to be my roommate that were one the potential list to get the place. I've had no less than 8 people I don't know come see me at my day job trying to convince me to let them live with me. This is what it's like with a 2% vacancy in Summit.

Right now I will tell anyone considering moving to Colorado to not do it unless you have no less than 6 grand to move with, a steady year round job already lined up, and you're willing to sacrifice. The ski bum lifestyle is one of sacrifice and it's tough. Real real tough. Last year I had to live with 5 other guys and a dog in a 5 bedroom 2 bath.
How are people finding out who you are and where you work? Man, I'd get pissed!
