One of my friends and I are looking to spend a winter season out west skiing / working. We all have skied Jackson Hole our entire lives and in a perfect world it is where we would go. That being said, JH is ridiculously expensive.
Where are the best places to ski and work for a season as students in between high school and college? All that is really important to us is that the housing is cheap and not ridiculously far from the mountain, and that there is time to ski in between work shifts. As of now Alta seems like the best option, but I have only considered Alta, JH, and Big Sky.
If anyone has any experience are thoughts on this please share them.
