Where to go for a month in US
 
Hey everybody, let me introduce myself first, because I am new to this fourm. I am Maciek from Poland.
I am looking for a spot to go for a month next winter somewhere in california or colorado. Since I am planning my trip unfortunately lonely people from other countries or US are welcome to join me.

I am thinking mostely of bear mountain, because I ride park mostly and it is much cheaper then mammoths because of the season ticket. Can anyone advice me whether it is good choice for a month? Or where could be better for this price or even cheaper?

Also I don't know US weather in winter from practice so it would be cool if someone adviced me which month is the best to plan my trip.
Places to sleep, job offers in area are welcomed, I want to cut the cost to the minimum

Thanks!

I've also heard northstar is good and cheap. Anyone been into bear and northstar and can compare?

Bear has a serious lack of snow compared to Northstar. The thing is most of the US is experiencing a lack of snow. If it's park you want to do, Breckenridge probably has the best one going right now. Still a lack of snow. If I were you, I'd reconsider and go to Canada.

by "next winter" do you mean the beginning of 2013? cause there's not much snow here this year.

macjous 01-09-2012 04:01 PM

yes, I mean 2013. sorry for not being clear

Please do not come all the way from poland to BEAR MOUNTAIN in southern california!

Do you want to be around a bunch of bro high schoolers that came up from orange county for the day and see brown spots and mud everywhere!?

Or do you want a great mountain with good people and unbelievable scenery?

i read more now, bear won't be good idea. what about northstar? do you have any tips for planning my trip? where can I find cheapest motel rooms or something

For a month you should rent a place on vrbo.com or Craigslist

Pick someplace with a season pass that's relatively cheap.... Breckenridge is a good choice, they are known for their parks too...
