Default Best city to live at.

So I'm looking for a place to live at where I could, within reason, snowboard anytime I can during the normal season (or even year round if possible). The biggest fault is that I completely with all my heart and soul hate hate hate small towns, farm towns, suburbs, all that garbage ass 1900's type lifestyle. I wish I lived like 100 years from now where cities finally take over all the farms, and rural living is a thing of the past.

I love city life. But I also love snowboarding. Usually both don't go hand in hand. So what city would be best to live in, where I could drive hopefully the bare minimum to reach a "decent" mountain?

Yeah, move here. You'll be riding more ice and sitting in more traffic than you'll know what to do with.

south lake tahoe right around the stateline area had a nice city feel to it when i lived there last winter. i had a house on the california side but i was able to walk to nevada in no more then a 10 min leisurely walk, once you cross the stateline into nevada there was like 4 casinos to have fun at. even closer was the gondola for heavenly which was only like a 5 or 6 min walk.

I live in Vancouver and can get from downtown to the base of Cypress in 20 minutes. I usually hit the slopes 3-4 times a week. If I want a resort experience I can get to Whistler in an hour an 20 min.

Are you set on staying out west or are you open to coming more east? (As in east coast).

VT has Burlington. It's very much a city. Great riding too.
