if you look for a place on somewhere like craigslist, try and find one in cottonwood heights that says something like "walking access to ski bus". you can find them, but i'd start looking soon, they get snatched up pdq.
if you have a pass, you don't have to pay for the bus. same if you work for a resort. techinically it is possible to get on a bus in downtown salt lake city and get off of one at a resort, but it is a big time wasting pain in the ass. don't fall for that if you find a place that has bus access to the resorts, ask how many transfers or where the stop is located.
you could always try and hook up a ride from someone on here or just buy a shitty ass car and drive it out here too.
pinnacle highland apartments right on 20th is dope, 2 bedroom for1,000 with a bus stop right at the apartments right next to the pizza hut, i lived there for a winter with a roommate, had an awesome time, gonna try and get back there either this winter or the next, i will be spending at least a month or two this winter in slc requardless because a winter in jersey without being in the 801 at all might indeed kill me....
i used to talk so much shit about how much i hated salt lake when i lived there, but now 801 is ink'd on my body and i spend every minute trying to figure out how im going to get back.
-by the way i have no idea how old this thread is but if your still looking there is definately houses in cwood heights that is just a bunch of skiers going in on renting house, most dont even know each other but those are always the dopest most fun spots, try and find one of those. (and if the house is full the couch usually costs you a little less anyway, but you kind of end up being the house bitch.
