how old is the young man, can't get into deer valley housing with children and you wouldn't want kids in there anyway. housing in pc is spendy, probably at least 750 with the both of you, you would probably want a car if you have any other shift other then days, free shuttle from around 5am to 11pm, if you want i know a person who has a killer master bedroom for rent with possible second bedroom, i rented the master from her last winter, i paid 7 but she would probably want more for 2, utilities are spendy
For those who experienced DV and the dorm housing:
How much 'free' time is available for employees to ski/snowboard? Discounts?
What is internet access like? WiFi?
I lived at both Prospector and River's Edge, and at both places, the wifi was not so great. It was a little better at Prospector at first, but as the building filled up, the amount of people using it dragged it right into the ground. There is a public library that has free internet access (there are other spots in town with free wifi also). I didn't have a laptop at the time, but I think wifi is available there too. You can use one of their computers for a half an hour at a time, or longer, if no one else is waiting in line, and there are around 20 of their computers.
Aside from the employee discounts with DV itself (you get a coupon book & vouchers, as well as using your ID), there are discounts to DV employees all over town. If you have your work ID on you when you go spending, it's like having an automatic coupon. I'd say around 70-80% of all businesses in Park City give such discounts.
The amount of free time you have depends entirely on what kind of job you're going to be working (if that's what you meant by that question). You can ski (Deer Valley does not allow snowboarding on their runs) for free as much as you want at DV since you're an employee, and there are major discounts for you to ski and snowboard everywhere else. Your HR orientation will go into more explicit detail.
I definitely need a place that allows snowboarding. That's some good advice to look into before committing to a job location! Thank you so much!!
As far as WiFi, I think I'll have to get a secured network from from my cell phone provider. I take online classes so it's pretty important that I have access where ever I go.
All this information is so helpful!
Julie, have you looked into craigslist.com? I just did a general search for rooms/shared near SLC and it seems plentiful available at reasonable costs if your son doesn't want dorm housing. Craigslist can be a good resource for filling needs & finding information, as always be smart and cautious when using.
I'm 53 years young you old fart ~lol~ yeah I've been doing this for awhile since my daughter graduated from HS and got married a few years later. I now have many young friends that except me for who I am kinda kool. Have a great trip till DV and maybe I'll see ya at the Prospector I'll be there also..
