Sorry I got cut off:
Also working on the weekend will provide you with enough money to buy food and beer!
The break down
4 years of high school save $5 a week = $1040
4 years of college save $10 a week = $ 2800
Total = $3120
4 years of high school save $10 a week = $2800
4 years of college save $15 a week = $ 3120
Total = $5920!!!! Think about it!
Then add in $100 here from a few birthdays and a $100 here from a few holidays for spending money and you are all set to go!
To do the same thing I just saved a few grand at my regular job, paid for rent for the season up front, then got laid off in November, collected unemployment and skied and partied on that all winter. Worked 1 night a week as a dishwasher for like a month for the free food and drinks but that shit sucked so I quit and went back to just skiing and partying.
I don't think you're factoring in enough added expenses here though, i.e.- equipment costs, tuning and maintenance, gas, renters insurance, season pass, extra scratch for roadtrips, etc.
My season cost me about 10k, +/- a few hundo.
Besides, if you're working weekends you're absolutely killing prime partying time.

i have a nice, big one bedroom right downtown slc for about that. any other major city it would be so much more expensive.
