EP is only about 30 min more of a drive, and well worth the extra drive if you ask me. If you aren't super picky about where you are living there is a pretty dumpy apartment/motel type place that rents rooms. I can't remember what they were charging a month for them but they were right there in Beaver so the commute is pretty short. I met the owner at the bar in the lodge at EP and he let me crash in one of the empty rooms for free... It was only a moderate improvement to my car and I was checking myself for bed bugs the next morning... at least I didnt have to go pee outside in the cold and I got a quick shower lol. The only down side to EP is they only operate 4 days out of the week. I think this season its going to be Thursday-Sunday.

If you got a pass to BH and the stars aligned just right that I had a day off the same time as you I would be down to carpool and even drive if you are providing room and board lol. I won't know what my work schedule looks like for sure until like December when I get back to America (in Afghanistan at the moment). I generally work 5 days on 3 off though when I am stateside. I already have passes to both EP and BH, with my military discount its only $150 more than if I had got a pass at the military rate for Lee.
When the season starts hit me up on here if you wanna try working something out.

This year I had season passes to both Brian Head and Eagle point. Next year I'm not planning on getting a pass. Not sure what I am going to do next season. I was thinking mammoth.. but its really damn expensive... I would like to get into touring but I dont want to go it alone. I was taught survival training by the military but they didn't teach me anything about avalanche prone snow... so I am a little apprehensive about going it alone or going with someone else who doesnt have experience. Truth be told, I am probably not going to board a lot next season because I am trying to get my bachelors finished. I will probably make a trip to tahoe (my mom has a condo there) and now I have some friends that live in CO springs so I may make a trip there... but other than that I dont think I will be doing a lot of boarding next winter because I just wont have the time or $$. Where you board at?

I board around mt charleston here in Las Vegas but love going up to Brian head since ski resort is better. This was my first season and loving it, also tried keystone Colorado which is amazing. I also do not want t board alone because I rather have friends to watch over each other. Good luck with school. Everyone is broke while studying but later banks.
