Hell, I'm 26 and I can't find a job on the east coast in Ontario so I got one in Whistler working at a resteraunt on the mountain. Why work a crappy, low paying, dead end job here while paying rent and hating it when I can work a low paying, dead end job in Whistler while snowboarding the winter away?
But that's my situation and it's much different than yours. lol. I'd say do what most people suggested so far. Do what you are good at and love doing, but try to find the best situation for yourself to do it. Don't just quit and move out west to bum around and waste away.
This winter I am working in a resteraunt at the mountain, but I have a degree in english language and literature. My main plan is to work the winter here and while working explore other opportunities for the summer and future on the west coast. Maybe I can catch on at one of the hotels, maybe with something else, but I'm not coming over here with the plan to waste away and do nothing with the rest of my life contrary to common beleif for someone picking up and moving out to a ski town. I've pretty much given up on my current life here on the east coast because the job market is a mess and the people as a whole out here are all douches. So I figured, why not try out west and have some fun snowboarding at the same time. lol
The only problem at this point if you were planning to do this soon is the majority of jobs at most mountain resorts and the like are filled. You would have to find the perfect situation if you wanted to get a job in your field of expertise in a city or town near a nice mountain or resort.
