I'm 23. Don't have a place to live yet. I'll have around 5K when the time comes for the move (October). I definitely want to stay for at least a few years. I've got serving experience and National Park Service/ Youth work program experience (lots of it). So you think it would be a better idea to just buy the season pass and find a job close-by? Thanks for the help, this is helping alot.

I am an asshole. Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Can't help the helpless. You obviously don't want help you want people to hold your hand through the whole process.

He's an asshole with lots of time on here though, so that gives HIM seniority and the ability to called you an asshole and get away with it...

You have to remember, you came here asking for people advice, he gave it, maybe not how you like it, but he gave it...

$5,000 will not get you far and to be fair, i would not consider moving with only that amount with the aim of doing a season...!!!

I don't know the country, the area, the resort, but i would guess that the best bet for work and getting to board would be bar work or serving OUTSIDE the resort, the minute you work for a resort you become a slave to the opening hours...! So unless they are open 12 hours a day and your working day is 8 hours a day, you will not get much if anytime on the snow...

Take peoples advice and think about what they say, they are not being dicks, they have seen it all before when it comes to newbies and people wanting advice for this, and in all fairness you could easily do a search on the forum yourself to find out what other advice had already been given...

So i guess after hundreds of posts and a lazy attitude, you come across as being what exactly...???

Just trying to figure out my options. I asked for advice not you're skewed perception of my intentions. I appreciate everybody else's respectful input.

And this is why you went back and edited your response so you didn't look like a dumbass?

You're a lost cause to try and help up here. If you hadn't been a helpless douche I could have pointed you in the direction of getting the most out of your time here, instead I'll watch you be yet another statistic of douche bag kids that don't survive up here.

Lol, an asshole that has made a living up here and has the ability to ride every day.

I'm on my 3rd year up here and have seen thousands of dips shits come and go. There are very few that make it and doit with success without just surviving. BA and I both live mountain side. Two totally different kinds of people. Two totally different professional lives, both with the ability to live here and ride every day if we want.

Maybe, if you want info, you should not act like a helpless sucker that needs his mommy to hold his hand through the lifestyle change of moving to the mountains...
