Thank you all very much for your help I really appreciate it. Does anyone have any further info on summit county, we have been looking at A-basin as a place to work and there seem to be several towns around that area.

Default Wanting to move to Colorado to be a Ski Bum

What are some of the best ski towns to do this at? Obviously i need some kind of job while I do this, but If i can snag something at a ski shop or a local business Im good.

Seems like most of the ski bums live in Dillon or Frisco

Maybe Georgetown also

IF you can find a place to 'bunk'. It would be an interesting thing to do for about 1 - 2 yrs. I would look at Winter Park, just to be in a less 'crowded' place(with ski bums) . I think there might be more job opportunities there, and probably less pressure on temp housing. (less choices of slopes / areas too, but a pretty good variety and BURRR cold)

Leave out the word Ski and you'll have a much easier time achieving your goal! Good luck!

I was thinking the same thing, Jim. OP, take it from us, make good use of this quiet time to prepare yourself for the rantings that are sure to come your way .
P.S.-I envy you. Good luck wherever you end up.

Go for it! I did the same thing many many years ago, and spent three years in Steamboat Springs. It was a wonderful time.

There have been some discussions on these forums about when to look for jobs at ski areas. I think probably November. Ski areas have a lull after the summer tourist season and before winter starts, so a lot of businesses close then.

It's been a long time since I did this, but some of the ski areas provide employee housing. I just don't know which ones. Also, the closer you get to the lifts opening, there will be people looking for roommates. Try doing a forum search on this and you may turn up more information.
