Vail Colorado

I worked in Vail for 4 snow seasons previously and was back here working another season in 2009-10 in the place I have grown to love. I could easily move and live here if I could afford it and bring my family here regularly. I worked 2 days and 2 nights a week and was able to ski up to 5 days a week. The skiing here is some of the best in the world and with a seasons lift pass only $569 it makes it all worth while. I went back again for the 20010-11. Season Passes have gone up $50 but are still cheap for the amount of skiing I do and compared to Australia. The 20012-13 passes have gone up another $50 to $650. Its now another year and am still back here. I have more friends here now than I have in Australia. Passes have gone up again for the 2014-15 season to $729  however I have decided to do one more season which is the World Cup Year in 2015.

So far its been a great year, very mild temperature wise and many Blue Sky Days. Have been working many extra days and even did 4 days work in Beaver Creek moving people from the Avon car parks up to the race area.
