HoboMaster As others have said sounds like you want to be in the PNW. The paradox here (and probably everywhere) is that the big well-known mountains get shralped quickly and can be crowded, but due to that tourism getting a job and supporting yourself isn't too hard. On the flip-side, you come to a town like Sandpoint which has a badass mountain that is fairly undiscovered (Schweitzer), and 80% of the people here are scraping by (small resort-town economics...). Grant you cost of living is also relatively low.

Lot's of trade offs, it just depends on what you want and the level of security you want into the future.

gnarfairies, fuck that made me laugh. I never heard of them.

For some reason it made me think of The Most Interesting Man In The World.

I don't always shred the pow, but when I do, I prefer de Baker.

Traveling gets old bro. I've been in 30 states and three countries in the last 10 or so years. If I could just live in golden I'd be happy, trust me!
Okay, makes sense now. You really don't live in golden.

I would not make a decision without spending some time at your final few canidates. I still think somewhere in the PNW with the length of season would be where you want to go.

2hipp4u So you have a good job with lots of benefits and your 40 minutes away from loveland pass.

Sounds like your young and single, but I think your a bit fukn nuts to walk away from that. Alot people would give their left nut to trade places with you right now. You only live once though so maybe its good for you, but if its all about the mountain and boarding I would look to something like the PNW.

Argo If baker were closer to a place with more hospitals I'd be down for sure. Mt hood/mt hood villages is a prime spot in my future or mt bachelor/bend.....

wrathfuldeity Baker, small town of Glacier, Maple Falls or Bham if you want a small/mid sized, pretty isolated and great for isolates/introverts, no resort scene and fairly inexpensive. Baker works a year round crew, in the winter/wind there are jobs for line repair due to lots of trees taking down lines in pnw. Lots of outdoor activities.

Argo Cool thing is the groomers work off hours so you can still ride all day..... Lift maint. Works in the days mostly.
