Default Considering a Job in Great Falls MT,.. anyone from there?

My Co. has a FT opening in Great Falls! I'm thinking about bidding on it! I see it's about 4-5 hrs from Big Sky, that's about what I'm driving to get to the closest "Big" resort here in MI. Not too bad a drive for long weekends to other Epic snowboarding destinations from GF either,.. vacations, 3 & 4 day holiday weekends and the like!

But, are there any good resorts closer than that? Something I could maybe hit before or after work, or an hour or two away for the weekends??

I'd have to take a fairly significant hourly pay cut to take the job. (...company scales it's pay by region & COL indexes!) So before I give this serious thought, I'd like some idea of what the riding is like locally! Of course other GF's info,.. crime, good neighborhoods, traffic, apt. rental rates, etc. would be appreciated as well!

Thanks!
