If jobs etc. aren't a consideration Jackson Hole for me. Hands down one of the most beautiful place in the US, tons to do all year long, snow and epic riding in winter. I mean I'm floored every time I go there and I haven't even gotten to snowboard there. Just a beautiful laid back town. Prettier and more interesting than Vail without the crowds IMO. I mean it's the most photographed range, part of Yellowstone (basically), surrounded by wildlife, and yet has an awesomely fun town.
