I'm going to be bartending in Snowmass for at least the winter. Aside from already being acclimated, what do I need to know about living and working Snowmass and Colorado in general having only lived as an adult in Oregon and Arizona.

I've been offered a position in Snowmass Village, Colorado as a bartender at an upscale resort. I'm coming up on completing a season at Crater Lake National Park, so I'm now ok with the altitude (presently at 7,700') and the seasonal nature of this type of work. I've been to Colorado once, for a few days in the winter. I don't really have any skills in skiing or snowboarding, but wouldn't mind developing these. I'll be driving out from Oregon shortly before November 1st.
What general things, anecdotal or otherwise, should I know or read up on concerning living in this area. Currently I have no housing lined up; Snowmass Village does seem to offer subsidized housing, but only to year-round employees, which I'm not classified as. My base hourly is roughly twice the standard for tipped Colorado employees.
