    Spending a winter in moab

    Anyone here doing it or have done it?

    Been pulling ski seasons for 15 years and looking for a break ..
    Thinking about visiting the KTM dealer taking a loan out on a new whip and ripping moto and pedal for the winter.

    Easy to get work? 30 hours or so a week
    I dont much care the pay just want it to be fun.

    hows riding in the winter? quick drive south to get dry dirt?

    thinking sep-april

    Id be down to get layed off for two months mid winter too!?

    any advice appreciated
    thanks

    Poverty with a view. But if you've been doing the ski season job thing you know what that entails.

    It snows and gets cold there too, riding isn't completely year round, although you'll get breaks mid winter to ride. St. George or southern Arizona is where you'd have better luck with that.

    Also, for entry level jobs, most are dependent on tourist season and work gets slower and harder to get mid-winter.

    Moab is not a winter riding destination. I'd rethink this one.
    I guide and rent bikes in Northern Utah
