Don't have enough energy to convince anybody of anything right now.
But 2 years ago I moved from the beaches of southern california to salt lake city, utah and it was hands down the best decision I have ever made. snowboarding is my life now. it snows so much here it's unbelievable and it's not just any snow, it's some of the best! just the layout of the area is amazing here. the only difference is i made the move EAST for better snow!
I live downtown. 30 minutes from 7 amazing resorts.
here (part) of downtown
This was is the middle of May last year...
Also, I am 21 about to turn 22. Didn't have a great job or anything really attaching me to my previous residents before making the move to utah.
