    I would like to know what your career is?

    Here is the big question, do you need a ski area?

    The Western US is full of awesome places with great people and an affordable cost of living. For better or worse, they don't "tick the boxes" for a lot of people.

    I just remembered, but has the OP considered Queensbury, NY? West Mountain is right there with awesome glades and night skiing, and an easy commute to Albany NY if you'd want to get into state politics.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    Civil Engineer. So I can live most places but the more exciting work/career advancement is definitely in larger cities

    Working remote/from home sounds pretty terrible to be honest, at this point at least

    The santa catalinas are great and all but I'm not sure their snowpack, if you can call it that, is the most reliable (source: astrophysicist that spent 6 years on top of Mt Lemmon - got exactly zero chances to rip mt lemmon ski valley, and then the first year I don't work up there it dumps for a week...)

    So should this thread really be about the best place to be a weekend warrior?

    Get a work visa in Europe, go back to the homelands.


    Forget Bozeman, its on its way to becoming some sort of amalgamation of SLC, Boulder, and Bend. That is unless, you like to move to places and see them develop like a cancerous tumor right before your own very eyes.


    The mountain biking is overrated. The majority of the trails are rocky as f*** and have no flow. The best trails are in the wilderness and and/or horse f*****. Plus, they are all covered in snow or mud for 10 months of the year.


    The 2 ski hills are over-run with all types. I know, I know. From viewing TGR forums you might of gotten the idea that there are only like 10 skiers here and they mostly concern themselves with chatting on the internets as if texting doesn't exist. There are hordes more. 1/3 of the university's undergrads are out-of-state wannabe ski bums who somehow convinced their parents to pay out-of-state tuition to a middling state school in Montana.


    You might get lucky and get to ride a chair with a washed-up ex-patroller who will explain the inner-workings of ski operations to you until your ears are bleeding. Oh, and then he'll mention how he was a ski patroller and they let him throw a bomb once. Don't you forget that he was a ski patroller. Pay heed to this man, for he is the holder of much knowledge and is one not to be crossed. Better yet a posse of twenty-somes living off their "savings" from Vermont, New Hampshire, or some other county in New England will engulf you. Watch out though, once they learn that you went to a regular high school and not ski academy they'll murder your children and leave you for dead. All the 10 year olds are going to be out-skiing you. Count on it. The limited backcountry skiing is dominated by rando-types racing around trying to dodge avalanches before class or work. By the end of April is a two-week Spring skiing season when the snow pack won't actually kill you. You will have to walk for many miles in boring lodgepole pine forests in order to access this said Spring skiing.


    The climbing is second-rate, the best routes are in the gym. None of the peaks are iconic, just a bunch of turds below 11,000' with no glaciers.


    The rivers are tame and flacid, usually drying to wee little trickles by July.


    The job market consists of tradesman driving from the Gallatin Valley and beyond to Big Sky to build castles for the rich. They got lots of ironically named roads and landmarks up there in Big Sky. As a civil engineer you could do well. Shit bro, you could jump right in and help everybody figure this whole thing out. We could really use a bypass around the southside of Bozeman. Please call it the Triple Tree Highway. Oh, and there are plenty of real estate agents chasing the next property sale like a lawyer chases an ambulance. They are more than willing to help you start flipping over-priced homes. Or renting them for twice their mortgage. F*** yeah! Winning!


    There are lots of very, very aware people here. They will make sure to keep you up-to-date on how humans are causing climate change, the glaciers are disappearing, this and that. You live in Seattle, you must be familiar with this type? Well, they run rampant in the Bozeman community. At the same time you might get to see the very same people give a slideshow of their latest vacation, oops...expedition, to the Greater Ranges. Because after every few months of saving the world, who doesn't need to go fly around it and play? Good networking there my friend. That being said, you could start a high-minded non-profit of your own to pay for some fun.


    The food is horrible. Burgers and steaks. The sushi is abhorrent.


    It is cold here. When its not cold, it is hot and smokey.



    • Good luck on your quest!

    Also, has he posted tits or stoke yet? Need to get on that.

    Haha, FringeLife - nice summary of the pitfalls of the quickly growing and “woke” Bozeman community.

    There’s just one thing you can’t argue. The Ridge at Bridger Bowl is a classic proving ground and fucking excellent.

    We left Durango because it got way too crowded. This is where we moved to find the best place to live:
