Is Vail, Colorado a good place for a snowboarding trip?

You just described South Lake Tahoe, CA!

14 outstanding ski resorts within an hour (Heavenly, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Kirkwood to name a few).

Heavenly has the best pass deal around $349.00 for an unlimited pass with black out days during only the busiest times of the year (X-Mas, President's Week).

If you want to work at a resort, Heavenly is located in South Lake Tahoe and they hold job fairs in the fall where they try to fill their winter staff positions.

Tahoe has endless miles of mountain biking trails. There are also access gates into the US Forest Service's Desolation Winderness where anything from a couple of hour day hikes to multi-day excursions are possible.

Another thing in South Lake Tahoe's favor is the fact that it is a couple hours from Sacramento and just four hours from San Francisco. There is also a major airport in Reno, NV just an hour away.

As far as night life. South Lake Tahoe sits on the Nevada border, steps away from 24 hour gambling and partying. The casinos offer locals nights during the week and weekends there is always plenty to do.

Traditionally , ski resorts don't pay very well but working here:

would surely make it worthwhile :)

Flagstaff Arizona, check it out!

What is Loveland Pass like for snowboarding?

How about Seattle? If you can handle the dreary weather, it has relatively affordable housing, a great music scene, access to lots of outdoor activities and you wouldn't be far from Mt. Baker.

Other places that might be good would be Reno/Tahoe.
Aspen/Vail Colorado.
Killington, VT
Whistler, BC

and I'm sure there are a bunch of great places in California where you can get a good mix of snow and other lifestyle stuff.

If you looked around, I'm sure you could find a bunch of others online.

Where can i find high resolution images?

screw all that, south lake tahoe is the best, if you want night- life, a beautiful lake and beaches in the summer, and off the charts skiing/ boarding in the winter, tahoes is the real deal.

Can you ski and snowboard in illinois?

my vote goes to Tahoe as well! plus nevada is right next to Tahoe, and you can go gambling. That is, if you like to gamble.
