How to Make the Move

For employee housing details, including information about office hours and locations, eligibility, deposit information and availability, please contact your respective resort’s housing office.

The bulk of our employees live outside of employee housing. And because of our prime locations, cost of living is pretty high in resort communities. While many alternative housing options exist within our area, it’s generally accepted that each bedroom of a rental property ranges from $600 to over $1,000 per month, depending on location and quality. It’s common to pay first and last month's rent and a security deposit upon signing a lease, so plan accordingly.

Many out-of-state applicants secure housing ahead of time online. Craigslist is increasingly popular for rentals. Or visit the classifieds sections of local publications.


Relocating to the mountains isn’t nearly as difficult as it sounds. In fact, it can actually be quite simple if you keep these factors in mind:

Be financially prepared
Unfortunately, resort communities aren’t cheap. The cost of living can be higher than you expect, even for everyday items. So plan to stash some extra money for food, travel and housing deposits.

Time your move right
At our ski areas our positions, as well as community positions, are mostly seasonal. That means few jobs and no extra work are available during the off-season, which runs from late April into early June, and then again from late September until November. If you’re planning to move here in advance of your start date, be sure to have enough money with you to live comfortably until payday.

Housing Costs
While many different housing options exist within our area, it’s generally accepted that each bedroom of a rental property ranges from $600 to over $1,000 per month, depending on location and quality.
