You just have to find a spot with no major population center within 4 hours of you home hill. Found one, and I got to say what a change. Of course there are no jobs here for most people. You got to be able to work at home. The resort in a lot of ways is less busy than the backcountry. Though that may be a bit different this year thanks to the Epic Pass. Time will tell, but I really don't think it is going to make a huge difference. For most Front Rangers, you want at least four days to even bother to make the trip out here. Weekend warrior trips don't really happen when you are over six hours away.
