Doing a Season in Jackson
Has anyone on here done a season in Jackson? Looking at a few places that I could go next year and this has been on my bucket list for a long time. I'm from Europe but can get a visa pretty easily so this shouldn't be a problem. Basically want to know how hard it is to find a place to live and get a job. And is Jackson as crazy expensive as everyone says it is?
It's as expensive as people say.
But if you've saved some euros the exchange rate will work in your favor right now.
Can't comment on finding places to live, but everyone I know says it can be a hassle, especially in the summer. But there is also the option of living over the pass in Idaho.
Some homies live just outside jackson in a town called Wilson its cheaper but you'll want a car or a roommate with one jobs aren't hard to find you just cant be picky every restaurant needs a dish washer just not the everyone's favorite job good luck man Jackson is an amazing place!!!!
I personally lucked out on housing here, so i'm not really sure what it's like to look for a place in town. Your best bet would probably be to find some people who are sharing a house and looking for an extra roommate. Otherwise, you can work in Teton Village at a hotel or the resort and try to get employee housing. I know that The Hostel and Hotel Terra offer cheap, almost free housing for employees.
Jackson is only expensive if you don't know how to avoid the tourist traps and expensive stores. People exaggerate it a little bit. The gas is a normal price and certain grocery stores are super cheap. The season pass is crazy pricy, however. I would recommend getting an afternoon job at the resort for the free pass. I'm living off minimum wage here with no help from family, so it is completely do-able if you live frugal.
I highly recommend trying everything you can to get here. Let me know if you have more questions!
