I live in CAli now and am leaving the crowed resorts and heading for bigger mountains in Montanan or Colorado. Witch is better and if you live in either what is the dopest out there. In Montanan i am looking at red lodge ski resort.

Montanan is by far the best area for rididng. Not many people know about our proud 51st state but it has much to offer as far as snowboarding is concerned. Also, its not too far of a drive to Canada, Argentina, a time portal to the former USSR, Florida, and Never-Never Land which are all phenominal for riding pretty much year 'round. On the other hand, the property tax there is a bitch.....

so Montana is expensive thats why i was looking at living in Cody Wyoming and driving to red lodge to ride. It seems like only and hour drive but that was without snow on the ground. Not to worried about the drive mainly the mountain and the snow. Right now i drive 2 and half hours to south shore every time so it's not the distance. Just also wanted to maybe meet some riders out there since i'm moving by myself.
peace out for now ...................

I would make sure you find out what the drive time is from Cody. It's pretty remote up there and a lot of roads close in the winter. You would almost certainly have to drive through Yellowstone to get to any Montana areas, and that is an hour drive in itself. You would also need an annual parks pass or pay by the week. Good ice climbing around Cody, and the world class sport climbing in Ten Sleep Canyon is about 2 hours away. For riding though, I don't think it's terribly close.

For Colorado, Front Range ski areas are going to be just as crowded as Cali resorts. To get away from the crowds you'll have to look at destination areas. Aspen, Crested Butte, Telluride, Steamboat are the spots. Wolf Creek would be really low key as it's not a destination area and is not close to any major population center.

I really don't know about Montana property taxes, but I can't imagine them being worse than in California.

CO mountains might be higher but I wouldn't necessarily say they're bigger or better. In fact I'd run as far away from CO as you can, it seriously is not what you have in mind unless you're living in like Durango, Wolf Creek, or one of the boonie resorts. Go to Montana or check out Wyoming.

Hell why dont you go all the way east and head up here to NH and Maine. Then you'll stop whining about cali and finally appreciate how great it is compared to the shit we have to deal with here.

Wyoming is boring as fuck in my opinion.... It's like a colder version of Kansas. Southwest Colorado does have a lot to offer if you are tired of the total rat race. Pagosa Springs and Durango are actually pretty fun little towns. I've thought about moving back down there more than a few times. I liked it a lot.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?
