Default Where should I move??

Myself and a friend are looking to move west for a little while, after recently graduating. With quite a few places to choose from, it's tough narrowing it down.
Good terrain is very important since we are planning to be there for a while, and the surrounding area is as well. Being relatively young, we'd prefer there to be some "entertainment" around... but at the same time, would like to go somewhere not overly expensive(which I've heard Aspen is).
It's kind of been narrowed down to a few places...
Telluride
Jackson Hole
Breckenridge
Tahoe, maybe

I've only been to Utah(Park city, Snowbird, Canyons), so I don't know too many specifics of these places.
Initially, Telluride was towards the top... but I have been seeing that it is pretty remote, with not much going on off of the mountain?

Any comments/suggestions/other input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

You said you want somewhere not expensive and with good nightlife around, yet all the places you list are either expensive or have not much nightlife.

Breck has a very respectable nightlife... And actually has an economy considering the size of the town.

Little bro spent a couple years in Jackson, and I visited him a good bit. I loved the vibe of the town - not sure if they still do this, but most bars gave out free vouchers for cabs, or something to that effect. It's a staggeringly beautiful place too. If there was a downside, it was that the place was a total sword fight, though maybe all mountain towns are like that.

I understand any of the well known ski towns are going to have a higher cost of living... however, I am not sure how different places rank, which would be why I'm asking
