What you will need

MONEY

We recommend that you bring at least $1,500 – $2,000 dollars to get started before you receive your first paycheck (which can take up to three weeks). The money will help you cover initial expenses such as groceries and security deposits for housing among others.

 

HOUSING ESSENTIALS

Some housing units may not be furnished, therefore, it is good to think about bringing (or purchasing) bedding or a sleeping bag, pillows, towels, kitchenware, dinnerware, etc. We suggest you contacting your landlord in advance to find out what furniture you might need.

 

WARM CLOTHES

During skiing season, the average temperatures can range from 8°F (-13°C) in December and January, to 48°F (9°C) in February and March. For instance, in January 2013 the temperature reached a low of -13°F (-25°C), and in March 2004 the highest was 66°F (19°C). This may sound scary –especially if you come from a warm weather environment– but every building, and even the buses, have heat; and when the sun comes up it feels a lot warmer. Besides, something good about snow is that you can shake it out of your clothes and you are already dry!
