Wow, more posts on this than I was expecting. I took an internet hiatus after a friend pointed out that I had no life recently (I blame it on my badly broken arm)
As far as herb goes.. Utah laws are NOT tolerant of it what so ever.. so in my opinion CO is the place to be, however I know enough people here and in Parkcity that I don't have any problems. Plus we know plenty of locals to fill up a "full" gondola every time.. if you know what I'm saying.
Deviant deff keep it in mind. Another guy from the forum is moving out here that I've stayed in touch with since I broke my neck and he came to visit and look at houses and really liked North Ogden. Don't know what you do for work but you could call around to see what type of earnings you'll be making around here. I know a few warehouse jobs for a bike company that start at $10/hr entry level and Salomon warehouse is here also for anyone that doesn't have a career and just needs a job. I make around $10-$15 at the pizza place and we host snowboard comps etc we're pretty much like a pizza "Cobra dogs" in Utah and I'm stoked about it.
Argo I spent a couple months in Breckenridge and a few nights at Vail/Aspen. I would hands down prefer Vail over anything else but it's way too expensive. The mountains out here tho do kick some serious ass and the snow is better. It's a lot more exposed out here so cliffs and bowls are everywhere.
The difference between here and CO is that here you're living with quite the mix of people. I'm talking all walks of life, the crazy bird lady that talks to herself on the public bus, the jam our religion down your throat mormons, the hippy festival kids, the jittery scabbed up tweakers, the from the boarder Mexicans, the outdoor enthusiasts who walks their dog around the foothills, and the bad ass extreme sport clan street and dirt BMX/hardcore mountain bikers/skateboarders/wakeboarders/snowboarders. I carry pepper spray on me at all times. I suggest learning jujitsu or at least investing in a pair of chopsticks.
I like it. but probably will only stay a few years. I grew up out in the woods and this doesn't feel like home to me. Mt Baker sounds great.
To legit to quit.
On the move this season.
