DINKLEBERGIf you're willing to leave Canada.
sellingerDepends on what you like and prefer. There will be a lot of people that say Whistler, but it's expensive to live there. I like Lake Louise a lot personally. It's not cheap there either, but the natural beauty of Banff is amazing.
If you plan on working wherever, 2,000-3,000 will do you just fine; even could be a little over doing it depending on how frugal you can live. Good luck man.
DINKLEBERGIf you're willing to leave Canada, then SLC/PC is a good bet. Relatively cheap housing + access to some really nice terrain and an open job market... You really can't go wrong. I'm not too knowledgable on the Canadian ski bum lifestyle other than Whistler.
Good luck OP! I'll envy your life if you go through with this.
steezyparkydamn, im jealous.
DBack1321Save as much as you can. You'll be surprised how fast you can blow through $3K even if you do have a job. Also the more you save now, the less time you'll have to spend off the mountain working.
How ski bumish are you willing to go haha? Living out of your car would be the cheapest option, but I wouldn't want to do that for months on end in winter.
