theabortionatorIf you're trying to work at a ski area, the jobs are probably all up now. Usually go up end of jan through early march.
Do you need a visa?
theabortionatorWord. Yeah good you figured out the visa. Id aply to several jobs unless youre applying for something with huge demand or you have a ton of skills with. I met some people that had gotten visa and came with friends but couldnt find a job.
