Unfortunately, Boise is the next big spot. Theres the reason it's been the fastest growing city in the US for a few years now. Have 3 good resorts in a 2 hr driving distance and about 10 world class resorts within 5 hrs. Also some of the best mtn biking in the US. Better get here quick though. Property is going through the roof and the Californians are moving here in droves.
Boise, that train has already left the station and Bham is like 5-7 years ahead of it. Frick'n crazy housing and living expenses...I would've thought things would be in the shitter by now. If/when things go south, alot of folks will need scuba gear...but hamsters are party surfing like its 2007.

I have no desire to argue with some fucktard who has never set foot in Boise. You keep having fun living in your "awesome mountain town" of SLC or Denver pumpkin. Leave the mountain towns for those of us with a brain.
Been to Boise numerous times over the decades, a good friend moved there a few months ago and also have lived a bit in ID during the last century. If had to choose a place in ID, it would be around McCall or Stanley or Driggs. All have these little towns have resorts nearby and backcountry.

Oregon has no "resorts" which are built to handle crowds, we're still trying to pretend we're Baker but we now have triple the population and 1/3rd the level of terrain.
Baker is pretty much at capacity on the weekends...certainly with in the past 2 years, if you haven't gotten the goods in the first 3 runs, you ain't getting it. And by 11am BC is getting tracked. This past year on mid week pow days, the parking lot fills up much more than in the past. The past being maybe 2 rows of cars and easy goods all day. The only thing saving bakes is the lack of services, the drive and local weather...keeps the touristas from over-running the hill...but damm Seattle needs to stick to crystal and stevens; and Canooks to north of the boarder.
