I'm there from time to time. So pretty much when I have the money. Thats bad ass your going to live up there. Hopefully your not living there in town or else you'll be spending all of your money you make on rent...it sucks.
Iam living in Edwards. No Iam not making snow at vail just grooming. Though I was offered a snowmaking Job at Keystone, At Beaver Creek I was also offered a job making snow and grooming. Also got offered a Job at A-basin working lifts which is way gay. Park City offered me a Grooming Job.
Congrats, Im sure you'll enjoy vail a little more than Tyrol. I also made the move from the MW, and I think Vail is great, good rails and the bowls are fun to fuck around in.

well I do have a degree in Ski Area Managment from Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, MI I did my internship at Blackjack Ski Resort in Bessemer, MI. http://www.gogebic.cc.mi.us/departments/sam_div/
Hell yeah it should be the shit at VAIL has to be better then the midwest.
This guy at beaver creek that I was talking to that offered me the snowmaking Job said it was all about the GOGEBIC name its such a program and school.
But when Vail called I knew thats where I wanted to go right away.
yea, there are a lot of little grommits in vail that are stepping it up. Taylor, Spriggs, Brett Bronca, and a bunch of other little guys. They are gonna be kicking some ass this year. It should be a good winter
Gogebic has a better program cause they have a Ski Hill on Campus that is used as a lab for all the class's that works out great. we should all try to meet up sometime when the mountain open's. it looked sick today when I was driving in from denver to edwards. but so did copper too.
dude, im gonna tell you now, you are one of the most forturnate lucky bastards in any ski town. all the groomer guys i know back at steamboat are the coolest guys ever and easily get 100+ years, heres the ultimate plan you gotta follow if you work the late night shift:
Start at Midnight and you'll usually go till 8, head back to the garage where they probably have a ski locker for all your shit, get dressed and you'll be out by 8.30, just in time for the lifts to open and get first tracks, ski till lunch, go home (oh yeah, buy yourself some heavy, black curtains), sleep for 8 hrs, get up, do it again. it kinda takes some getting used to and seems like it cuts out on the nightlife but if the crew at vail is anything like the one at Steamboat, its a crazy bunch of fun dudes and you always have the weekends too to party and you'll be used to the allnight grind a lot better than your other friends.

thanks man it should be great. i belive the hour's at vail are 3:30pm tell 2am and 2:30 am tell 1:00pm I hope I get the night shift cause I know a bunch of people that will be working that one should be a blast and then i can still ski alot and alot. who needs sleep fuck it.
excellent snow, just got 8 inches today , 12 since friday, parks are good, i think beaver creeks beats vail but whatever, i its nice, i really wish one of them had night skiing on there park, thad be sick
i cant describe the vibe i get when i drive by 6 people and 5 i hit
