West coast winter jobs?

I'm looking to get out of Vegas around mid November. I have been looking around and have no real desire to go one place vs another. I want an epic season of great conditions and a night job in a restaurant. I think I may have a job in Alta, UT but not 100% sure yet, it offers free room, and pass, which would be awesome just not sure about UT. Anyone know of any other resorts that offers the same? Or even if you happen to work in a restaurant in a small mountain town on the west coast and need some help PLEASE let me know. I have over 3 years of experience with trainer experience, and opening a restaurant.

He was saying that Snowbird is just down the street and you can get a pass for it for a few hundred more?

UT is cool but if you snowboard ALTA is a ski only resort

Snowbird looks sweet I did not make it there last season sould make it there this season.So they will give you a discount at Snowbird if you work at Alta that is cool of them.

November is the worst time to move if you don't have a job, housing, and a pass already.

When do they generally do the hiring and everyone move up?

If you haven't moved in by late September/ Early October you're SOL for cheap affordable housing. They've started hiring earlier and earlier every year but working for the mountain is a crock of shit they steal your soul and never give you ride time. Work in the town and buy your pass.

From your experience how hard is it generally to find a place to work in a smaller town? The ones I have been looking at is Truckee/North Tahoe, Revelstoke (not sure if I will be able to get a visa though), somewhere in CO but heard they have a big problem with housing prices, or really any relaxed smaller town with a good vibe.
