siding on hilltop home

hi!
i am about to purchase my first home and i am looking at a property that has a hilltop home. on the front side, here is a 110ft drop, so it's quite a slope.
the house needs the siding (currently wood) replaced and i am tying to get an idea/estimate on how much this would cost.
i am thinking about replacing the siding with stucco or some other material. i assume this would have to be done using some form of scaffolding? what are the ballpark cost for scaffolding on such hillsides?
does anyone have any experience with hillside construction/repair work? i know it's hard to say and i needto get an estimate from a contractor but i would like to get some seneral suggestions from this gorup.
as a sidequestion, does anyone have a list of some good alternatives to wood siding?
thanks a lot in advance, -r

Rather than depend on guesses from us, why not talk to a local contractor that does work in places like that? Ed

Local costs and your particular and unusual conditions require an on site visit. In addition, worrying about a part of the construction process seems unproductive. I suggest choosing a couple of siding systems that are technicly and aestheticly appropriate.
