In order to keep costs down, stay in one country per season when able, and stay in hostels. For added entertainment track your travels and your progress throughout the year, and post them in the many skiing and snowboarding communities online, joining a new community.

Are you looking for a sabbatical that is good for the money and soul - and also can save a bit of financial stress? A workstay, or workaway, may be the perfect answer. These experiences allow you to stay with either families or groups of people, and can offer full immersion into the culture and society for the exchange of your services somewhere in between 2 or 12 hours a day, depending on the location. Payment often comes in the form of lodging, meals, and sometimes a guide. It is good to keep in mind that while these do not require work visas, they do require travel visas, and for longer trips you may have to split your activities between multiple nations.
