The plan is to come to the US in November. I'm just giving you enough notice to organise the arrival party ;)

I spoke to the travel agency at my university and am very keen to participate in the CC-USA program. Basically, I travel over to an American ski resort and they set me up with a job and accommodation for 3 months from November-February. I'll work in a ski shop, restaurant, chairlift, whatever. Whenever you're not working you have as much time to just ski ski ski! The resorts provide you with a season lift ticket (worth thousands of dollars) and I just can't wait!

I was going to wait another year so I would be 21 (overage) when I came, but today found out that I would be ineligible for the program then as I will have (hopefully) graduated from uni.

Anyway, I'm probably going to apply in the coming weeks/months :D

if its a ski resort near san fransisco i have been there
its called the sugar bowl and there are plenty of aussies working there
lots of them were there on temp. h2b visas but the us embassy wont be doing them this year so i have no doubt that you will be travelling on a j1 student visa.
have fun!

if its not the ski reosrts i met some aussies and south africans that ended up in 2 diff resorts in the usa, you are VERY likely to be going to one of the three, if not sugarbow in cali it could be one in vermont or else colorado.

My mate did something similar to that last summer. He got hooked up with a job at a U.S theme park. He had to work for a whole month to cover tha costs of everything then he went traveling for a month all around, east to west.

No idea yet. There is a trade fair here in Melbourne when all the top ski resorts come over and try to convince us to work with them. Whistler, Aspen, Sun Valley, Copper Mountain... no idea.

A lot of details to work out yet, but I am adament that I want to spend next winter there. It will be frustrating coming from Australia where I am overage for anything and everything however I have been told it's easy to get a fake international student ID.
