Moving to Basalt/ Aspen Area looking for jobs/advice
So I'm planning on moving to Basalt to live there this summer and possibly indefinitely until I figure out what I want to do in college.
Anyways, my question you to you guys is I'm from Idaho and lived there my whole life, and when I'm moving down there I need to find a job. I've had a plenty of work experience in almost everything from ski instructing, to working in a ski shop to teaching kids robotics and doing a little bit of retail. So my question for you guys is where the best place is to probably start looking for a job for a 19 year old male with a great work history background? Also what jobs to avoid while working there.
Secondly, I'm not from the area, so where would be a good place to do stuff and meet new people while I'm there? What towns are the best to go to and what things to avoid, and the vibe from the town I guess I should say.
I've lived on my own before so thats nothing new I just wanted to see what you guys who are locals know about this place and what you feel someone who isn't a local who is moving there for should know. Thanks.
Live and work in Snowmass village or aspen. Closer to the mountains which in the winter is great. Basalt/ el jebel is okay but your probably get a job in Aspen or SMV so why waste the extra money on gas/bus travel.
Club commons is pretty darn cheap in SMV. 550 with all utilties and furnishing except internet. Get your own room (dorm set up).
Sounds like a good plan. I think I might have lodging covered due to the fact that I have an uncle that is renting out an apartment he owns for like 400ish a month.
As far as jobs go I'd probably leaving in a month or so from where I live now (idaho) so It probably be something in the spring that would go through the summer. or potentially even further.
As far as going and trying to find a job, what is the best way to go about that in that area. Which areas are usually hireing and which ones are the jobs to avoid in the Aspen area?
Depends what you want to do. They probably won't be hiring much on mountain for winter by the time you move out here. Leaves you with spring jobs and summer jobs. Hospitality and hard labor will be your your biggest options for work in the summer.
