    I think there is starting to be some movement in trails orgs, which is why what they have is getting better. They need some type of Shoreline type trails system that's easy to hit after/before work. Currently most everything that I know of is up the canyon. I don't know what the land ownership looks like on the benches above town though.

    I forgot to mention that there is a bunch of limestone sport cragging up the canyon if that interests you at all.

    3 hr norte to the Tetons. 2 to Targhee? 2 hrs south to Wasangelesl
    I think it's Campsaver.

    And Targhee is still 3.5 hours on dry roads from Logan.

    My experience has been limited mountain biking, spectacular climbing (some of the best limestone in the state) and skiing if you have somebody to show you around. It's been mentioned up thread, the Wellsville & Bear River are not the Wasatch, there are few people out and about and they don't spray online. If you meet the right people though the opportunities are endless. The yurts are easy to get into and the terrain is massive, especially with a cooperative snowpack.
    All the concerns about the dominant religious faction are warranted, although Logan has a significantly less oppressive vibe than Utah Valley or, to me at least, a place like St George. It's more of a Cedar City vibe, Mo for sure but also full of peeps who will tell you to fuck off if you start with the Jeebus talk.

    Climbing is one outdoor sport that I never really got into. I have always enjoyed it when I have gone - mostly in college - but never have gone regularly enough to improve and get good enough to go out on my own. If I ended up somewhere it was the area's comparative advantage, maybe I'd have to. I enjoy learning new things. My ability to increase in skill offsets my inevitable physical slide.

    If you like to drink beer, stay in W Mass. If that's not a compelling factor, Logan could be cool.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Thanks! If we end up moving out there, I'll certainly take you up on it.

    Iím going to need to get on my computer to fully answer questions as I lived in Logan for 10 years. Several other Mags lived there as well. We became good friends. Look for posts from me, Twoplanker and Stoysluttyone (sp?)
    USU is a good place.
    Skiing is no issue at all. Beaver for a home mtn and hit Ogden, SLC, WY.
    Biking is fun. They could use a builder.
    Youíre 35 minutes from Idaho for real beer. Recent changes will give you real beer in the grocery store.
    Lots to do and hikes.
    Momo culture is there but you can get away from it.
    We moved to a house in Cove with lots of land, had 2 Danes and loved getting out of Logan proper.
    In SLC now for the past 12 years.

    Thanks for the good info. I ran across some of your old posts when browsing the old threads.

    It sounds like a place that I would probably like. Now we just need to see if they want to hire my wife, and if they do, if they want to enough to find me a job. I had an interview yesterday at the school I'm at now in Western Mass. They told me they probably won't get to a decision until after Thanksgiving break, which is actually kind of convenient as it makes it more likely that we could wait to see if my wife gets an offer from USU.

    Are you currently at one of those fancy NESCAC schools, or UMASS- Amherst?

    Nice. I have friends in Amherst. a landlubber's P-Town.
    I bet that you make more $$$ there than you would at USU.
    Of course, you cannot compare skiing within 1.5 hr of Mount Holyoke (Butternut, Berkshire) to Logan (Alta, Snowbird, Snowbasin, Pow Mow).
    Then again, married or not, there must be perks to teaching at such a fine all girl school in central Mass.

    I know that the Greater Mt Tom/Northampton/CT River Valley ain't the worst place in the world and people gotta live somewhere but my honest advise would be to get the fuck out and move to the intermountain west. I grew up there and what people think of as the good life make me want to put a fork in my eyeballs. I don't know how old you are or your specific situation up I'd encourage you to give it a shot. Even if Logan ain't the dream, it could be a stepping stone to the dream.

    Feel free to ignore, I really just posted because I want to say:

    Yeah in the grand scheme of things, I really like where we live. Nice small towns, some pretty good mountain biking trail systems nearby. No complaints save for that my first year here was a wild aberration in snow fall and it spoiled me into thinking i would be able to do regular little ski tours in the mighty Holyoke Range. That hasn't been feasible since.

    I also like my job a lot. I like my students and they seem to like me. I'm the Outdoor Club advisor. They do pay better than USU (though the cost of living is a bit higher too). If we end up here, I'll be happy and consider myself lucky.

    That being said, I do have a little wanderlust for what Foggy_Goggles is suggesting. I just love mountains. We lived in the Himalayan foothills two summers ago and I was just happy to get up everyday and go take a walk. So if the opportunity presents itself (and that's no guarantee), I wouldn't mind trying out somewhere else for a while.

    Please Marcus only skis the best. Tough to swallow a possible downgrade to Utah.
