Or should I just bat my eyelashes and hope someone will take pity on me? haha.
I'm a snowboard instructor, so I'll teach you if you promise to be nice to me in class and not throw me under the bus when I contradict myself...
As far as the passes go, I definitely agree on getting the CO pass over Epic now that you've mentioned the difference. Vail is cool, yeah, but 10 days is PLENTY at Vail for the season. It's overcrowded and overdouchey IMHO. I'm from Iowa, but have spent at LEAST 4 days riding in CO since 8th grade, so I know my way around Keystone/Breck really well.
Rent sounds pretty pricey, but roughly the same as I pay here in Seattle (I live in a 4 bdrm place.) I mean, in the scheme of things, $500/month vs. $750/month is only $9k extra in loans over the course of three years... bahaha
