Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hi all,

I'm a reformed ski bum looking to spend some time in the Alps this winter before I end up moving to the states (long story). I landed a remote job so I can work from anywhere, but I'm just looking for ideas on where to set up and live for either the full season or a month or two.

France is preferred because I'm fluent in the lingo and planning to finally ride La Grave before I head across the pond, but I loved my time working in Switzerland and visiting friends in Austria as well. Realistically I'm open to all options. Ski Pass isn't a big deal as I plan to do a lot of touring and only ski on my days off, so reckon I can get by with day passes.

Would appreciate any and all suggestions.

Cheers Smile

Briancon / Serre Chevalier. Close to La Grave plus Briancon is a real town and the Serre Chevalier ski area is a decent size with good off-piste.

+1 for staying in a valley location and driving out to resorts. For a start, you'll probably get much faster/cheaper broadband (if that's important for your remote working). Food will be cheaper too. I'm thinking the French-speaking Swiss Valais, somewhere like Martigny or Sion, or a smaller town like Sierre or even Riddes or Leytron. Then get a Magic Pass to ski the area.

Go with the snow.

Living in a valleytown sucks. No sun. No snow. No buzz.

Do it proper.

Do Verbier.

Have a look at resorts/towns with co-working spaces too - a few of the towns with skiing have some e.g. Chamonix - http://www.theskilocker.com/ (I use that a lot), Morzine - https://www.thirdplacemorzine.com/membership and https://www.facebook.com/buro74110

And there are places in North America also - I know people working out of Whistler a lot, and SkiLocker has a 'partner' in Colorado - http://www.theskilocker.com/steamboat

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm still partway between renting somewhere and buying a camper to sell at the end of the season. Thanks for the suggestion on co-working spaces too, I'd not thought to look for that.
