A few months ago we told you about a Vail Resorts-sponsored contest called "America's Best Summer Job" that aimed to pay one lucky bastard $1,000 weekly to live the high life in Colorado this summer. The results are in and America's wanna-be ski bums can now direct all of their jealous anger at Benjamin Solomon of Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Solomon beat out 67 other contestants and will be headed west in early June. Expect to see him at Vail's hottest summer events and check out his musings at the official Vail blog. Perhaps the best perk of the contest is Solomon won't be subjected to employee housing; his tenure in Vail will include weekly stays at all of Vail's top lodging, including multiple properties on our list of the 38 Essential Ski Town Hotels. Huzzah for Ben!
