Default Roomies wanted in Northern Utah.

Eh why not post on here.. Be nice to have a snowboard room mate.. but not sure how many people use this site around here.

Anyway.. if anyone is looking to move out to a ski town I'm looking to get a place here in Ogden. We're a 25-40 minute drive (depending on road conditions) from Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. 45-an hour from everything else: Snowbird, Brighton, Parkcity, Canyons, Solitude, etc.

If none of you have heard of Ogden.. let me tell you living here is DIRT DIRT cheap like you're looking at $250-$500/mo rent and if you want to buy a house around a $500-$900.mo mortgage for a house. Yes there are some sketchy people around certain areas.. but it's a pretty cool town all in all and an outdoor adventurist haven. Got crazy bouldering and rock climbing gyms/the real thing all around you.. and the mountains kick ass.

National Geo rated Ogden as one of the top 10 emerging ski towns in the country.. there's been talk of putting a gondola on the town side of the mountain but not clue if it's happening for sure.
here's the link
Top 10 Emerging Ski Towns - National Geographic

anyway if anyone is interested in finding a place out here let me know.. if I'm not looking for roomies anymore I might know someone who is down the road.

OH YeAH Snowbasin passes are on sale for lik $450 or $500 bucks right now for mountain biking and season next winter. Just an FYI

oh and this town has indoor skydiving.. if you want to drop a hundo.

The eNd.

If it wasn't for my arm and somewhat low money caused from the same, I might have hit you up for this. Been looking to get out of Ohio and that's about the same drive to the resorts I have here. I'll have to keep this town in mind for the future with living costs like that.

Did you ever make your way through co? How do you like the SLC area compared to summit/eagle counties?

You also have to remember that LOW cost of living, usually goes hand in hand with LOW wages and fewer decent job prospects! I've been keeping an eye on my companies internal job postings in the hopes of finding a good position out west in or close to a real mountain/resort area. But since the company adjusts pay for the same jobs based on local cost of living,.. most of the positions for places in the intermountain west would have me taking a fairly substantial cut in pay! Anywhere up to several dollars an hour!

(...dunno who the delirious SOB's making those determinations are, but those Numb F%#$'s seem to think it's cheaper to live in Sacramento CA. than Metro Detroit!!) WTF??

My wife took a huge pay cut when we moved out to Utah, which kinda sucks because we didnt factor that into the house we bought >< Having said that it is still an awesome place to live and I am contemplating retiring there. (I live in North Ogden, but I am military). In any event my choices for retirement are currently between Washington, Oregon, and Utah. Guessing the cost of living is cheapest in Utah and the mountains are probably the closest but finding a second job/wife job is probably the worst,

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.
