People say Van is expensive, but I say that it's relative to any larger city. Just like anywhere, you've gotta be a little smart about your money.

Hope that helps
Have to say that if I didn't live where I do, I would be in Vancouver for sure.

Dude, that's fairly off topic. You may get an answer, but probably have better luck contacting them directly or start a new thread?

I was in this position back in 2009, I chose salt lake city and bailed from california. 40 mins away from downtown you have 7 resorts 4 of those resorts get 500" of snow each season - so plenty of pow days. the other 3 get 350" and have killer parks. one hour away you have 2 more which also get 400-500" of snow. 14 resorts total, killer backcountry with easy access. 4 hours from jackson. seemed like a no brainer to me.

i wasn't ready to go all out and seclude myself in interior bc somewhere, but if i could i would.

IMO, in the US, SLC is the only one that meets your criteria... and then some.

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

I live on the powder highway and I didn't have to build a cabin or sell blood.
