I am thinking of relocating also. So I'm interested in hearing what people have to say. I live in DC right now. While an amazing place to live (education and job wise) the snowboarding is lacking. our biggest mountain around is 7 springs. I am constantly paying for big trips to fly out west every year to board. My fiance and I are looking into moving out West in the near future. We have both talked to our jobs and they will let us relocate. I can work from home remotely (IT sales). and she can transfer to a new location. We have it narrowed down to Colorado or California.
Me: Big Mountain boarding, I also like the city life, bars , food, nightlife walking distance.
Her: Just anything new instead of DC/Baltimore area, She likes sandy beaches so she is leaning towards San Fran, but has never been to CO, and we are going in November to Wolf Creek, so im hoping she will fall in love with CO.
We are looking at Denver and San Fran. In San Fran I will have my big mountain boarding in either location with Tahoe being driving distance from the bay area and she will have her beaches(she boards also though, but just learning stages). In denver we have the city life, and boarding very close and it is LOTSSS cheaper than San Fran. We are not ballers, so San Fran cost would be a stretch for us but we would be very very comfortable with the CO living cost. Any insight from people living in these areas would be great!!
Also on the radar are other areas of Cali and CO. If someone knows of cheaper areas around the bay area, i have open ears. Sorry to hijack your thread buddy
