I am looking at moving to NZ next summer for a little while. Does anyone know what the best type of temporary job to get for an American is and a good spot to live? I want to be really close to the mountain and get a fair amount of days in. I ski a lot of backcountry so I will be touring quite a bit as well. Also I will be down to film with any crews out there I would be down. What is the best resort in NZ in your guys' opinion? I should be able to get a pass comped or at least discounted.
Thanks for the info and anyone who can help me out here with a job or place to stay I would be happy to use my connections in Japan and Utah to hook you guys up for the favor.
