I moved to Denver last year for this very reason. Unlimited access to 3 resorts (Breck, Keystone, and A-Basin) and slightly restricted access to 2 resorts (Vail and Beaver Creek) within an hour and a half drive for $500 a year. Or unlimited access to all 5 for $600 a year. Would be a really good deal if we would get some snow :(

Move to City within a hour and half drive and look for a flexible job in your field that pays well. (Denver, SLC, Portland, Etc)

Check out Sandpoint, Idaho maybe.

Cheap town, the mountain is nice for one you never hear about! Good luck finding work though.

The problem with living that close to a resort is they are all small towns, so finding a job is tough. I guess it really just depends on your industry. I was limited to big cities with my move.

Vancouver, BC has three local hills within 35min of downtown. You can live closer than that and still be in the city too.

You've also got Whistler, Baker, Hemlock within 2hrs... then you've got the nearest interior mountains within 5hrs... then the powder highway beyond that.

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
