I have grown up in the eastern sierra for my entire life. I have spent my years here dedicated to hiking, skiing and fishing in the backcountry. I work on ski patrol in the winter, and I am currently trying to figure out a new summer job.
My girlfriend and I have had a calling to move north to Alaska for a while now, and we finally have enough money saved up to make a move up in the spring.
Girdwood is the most appealing area to me because of the close vicinity to Alyeska Ski Resort and I could patrol there in the winter potentially. I highly doubt that I could live in anchorage.
Looking on craigslist, it seems that rent could be anywhere from $600-1200 for a 1 bedroom house. How easy would it be to move in the spring and find a place to rent? What other types of jobs are in the area, both in the summer and the winter?
Thank you all for any input or thoughts about the move!
