You'll have $700 for bills per what... per month? Is the job full time? $9.20 net pay an hour at 40 hrs a week is $736 every two weeks. If they are covering your rent, then $368 a week for food+utilities+gasoline is definitely liveable.
Based on what a lot of folks who live in Summit/Eagle have posted on this board.... the faster you find an independent job that pays decently *not* working for Vail Resorts, then the more content you will be. I don't know your money situation, but parlaying the job into part time work (say, 25 hours a week) should give you a decent mix of riding and putting in time at the office. 40 hrs a week leaves you 2 days out of 5 to ride. You have a boyfriend, so you will undoubtedly be spending a lot of that time with him.
