Jobs/housing in CO ski areas mid season
I'm about 60/40 on whether or not I will take off next semester and go to CO. How easy/difficult would it be to find a job on a ski resort (probably Copper, Key, or Breck) mid January to early February? Eldora is also an option, considering it's the closest resort (90 minuntes) to Estes Park, the area I'm familiar with. I did work at a the Estes Park Mountain Shop this past summer, so I do have some outdoor retail experience. I have no restaurant experience. I'll take just about anything that's on a resort.
Also, is there semi-affordable housing in these towns? I don't want to spend more than $400/month, and have no problem living with roommates (I've had seven total). Hit me up if you might be looking for a roomie. I should know what I'm doing by the 20th, if not sooner.
Mas karma for good help. Thanks, guys.

Move this to Co regionals?
Getting a job with in Vail Resorts isnt hard at all, but I would imagine getting a pretty fun job like I did out there will be hard mid season. Just keep a close eye on openings. I would recommend just apply to stuff right now so they have your resume and information in the system. Then its easier to apply for more positions.
Also in regards to housing, I might be seeking a place to stay around that time, I dont wanna be stuck in employee housing for forever.
Ill PM you here soon to discuss more details.

You will lose a lot of money chasing women but you will never lose women chasing money
Depends if you want to be a ski instructor will probably take you right away finding housing is also extremely easy if you want I get up some of my friends that still live there ask around and they might know some things as for a job if you actually look hard for about 20 hours the first week you're there you just spend on finding a job you should be pretty set.
Also I forgot to say I was living in a place for 230 a moth but it was a two bedroom apartment and there was five people living there seeking being that it's a little late I don't think you can jump on the ski bum house wagon. However the most I've ever seen someone pay living with roommates is 700 anywhere from the 4 to 600 $700 range is want you will be paying with a roommate
