I was browsing some the jobs on Vail's website, and noticed some openings for beginner snowcat operator. The pay is poor $10.25/hr, but whatever. I figured it would be an awesome job to do over the winter. Work from 4-midnight, so I can ski during the days. I have been looking through some craiglists ads for housing, and found some places that are 400-500 for a room. Obviously the apartment or house would have other roommates. I am not sure about the employee housing, how much it is, or what to expect.
Anyone who has any info or experience with working in Vail/beav, or as snowcat operator, could you please chime in. It would be much appreciated.
