Default Girl boarder wants to go out west.

Hey everybody!
I'm 24 female from NH looking to move out west this coming season.
Haven't decided where I'm going.. waiting patiently for winter job postings to pop up this summer. I waitress at my local ski resort here in NH with night riding and averaged 5 days a week. Hopefully being in the biz will work in my favor. So far eyeing Breckenridge and Mammoth BUT just want to hear any recommendations on mountains I should check out.

I really could care less how this plan takes action. I'm just a girl that loves to ride and wants to experience a new place and meet a good crew. I don't mind sleeping on the couch for a winter either. SO if any of you want to take me in or just have some good advice on where to look and how to get started let me know! Much Appreciated Thanks.

I would be hap...
wait a sec...

There aren't any girls on the internet!!!


Here's one thread about working at a mountain: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sno...-mountain.html
I'm for sure that there's another one that goes more in depth about living around a mountain (it's hard), but I can't find it. Too lazy to search anymore.

Breck is a pretty fun mountain town. So is Aspen from what I hear.

I've got some friends who live in Vail... That's where I would like to start a career and stay for a long while

Me and my BF always said that if (God forbid, sort of) he loses he job we are outta here and out West immediately.

Anyway, I always thought Utah was an odd (but absolutely gorgeous) state, but that would be my choice if I moved out West. Just cause of the variety of the terrain, there are so many different mountains to choose from. And the cost of living is not that high. As opposed to Colorado, which was sick, but it will cost a lot more money to be able to live out there.

Good luck fellow chick boarder

Well what do you girls want to do? You want to come out and work at one of the resorts and live in housing to get a taste first?

I recommend saving up several thousand dollars before making any large decisions.

Personally I was booked in Denver for a Drum and Bass show back in 2006 and fell in love..... I chose to live in Denver, rather than live in the mountains because of the economy here. It's a lot stronger in Denver for sure, and not super far from the hills. My plan is to eventually get a job with the city of Vail and move up their and call it good.

Basically I recommend for you guys to take a trip to a few of the places your pondering moving to, and that will help you make a decision.

Denver was the first place I'd gone to that felt like home, rather then a cool place to visit. Hopefully the Rockies do the same thing to both of you.

Adding to what Snowolf said.

Resort life can be a bitch! They require a lot of work from you with very little pay. And depending on what job you get, you might not get much riding time.

There's a reason why I chose Denver rather then moving directly to a resort town. Now once I can find a good job with the city of Vail, I will have some big decisions to make as I currently work for the city of Denver.

Both of you: If you are serious about heading out West, congrats you will be THRILLED if you do so!
If either of you) head to Tahoe and need a job, check out the casinos. Trust me, living on resort wages is not the ideal way to do things in a ski town..
Shredding all day and working at night for big tips FTW!
