Canada. Probably somewhere in the Vancouver area. Close to Whistler. That or Toronto, to stay in the east.

That or Australia. Cooma, or somewhere close.

To stay in the US, Colorado. Any where in/near the mountains.

I grew up in the cold snowy mountains and I'd like to end my days in the cold snowy mountains. Have a small house in Breck so that's probably where I'm going to end up at some point.

Four years ago my wife of six months at the time and I had enough of the OC and all the shit that's SoCal and moved to Bend. We both got good jobs and love it here. I cannot foresee any change in the near future. Winter is epic, summers are awesome and I still surf out at the coast during the shoulder seasons. If you can get a job, do yourself a favor and move. Best decision ever.

Moved to SLC 3 years ago for school and fell in love with snowboarding and the mountains.

I likely wont stay in SLC but its an awesome place to board. I plan on moving to Vancouver in a year after school.

Bend was on my short list when we came to vail. That area is a place we will likely End up at some point in time. The only thing that put vail on top was the ability to work in a hospital and live slope side without having to drive anywhere.

I'm not slope side, but I am at the hospital. Twenty minute cruise of a drive from town.

Yeah, the hospital is actually slope side here..... Pretty freaking convenient. I live 300 meters from the gondola and 100 meters from work. We will be spending a few more days in bend this July to scope it out a bit more. We also really enjoy the mt hood villages area, just not so much into that super wet snow....

Vail does not suck but, like anywhere, there are downsides. We may just stay here forever but it's fun to contemplate the "what ifs"......

Hood is awesome! Been here 3 years now and can't get enough. However you will have the mountain memorized inbounds in less than half a season and doesn't compare to CO for terrain. But while the snow is often wet we do get nearly double what you guys do and you get use to the Cascade Concrete pretty fast, plus boarding year round is hard to beat. However for jobs you will likely be stuck over half an hour away from the hill. Bend is a great alternative though and killer year round for all sorts of activities. But wait, nm it rains too much, stay away, it sucks, you'll hate Oregon Best lie ever told to people!
