    Is there a place in the USA thats cheap to live and has good skiing

    PM me suggestions.

    Theres no need to ruin places by blowing them up.
    But Im just trying to figure out if it even exists anymore.

    Example: Mt Bohemia. Ok, but the season is mid January to mid March. So thats not really good.

    15 years ago it was Salt Lake City. Work all summer. Or work in the evening, little cheap house with the mexican neighbors in a working class neighborhood, best snow on Earth.

    What is that now. Is it gone?

    Again, feel free to PM me instead of blowing it up on the internet. I understand.

    Manufactured housing in Vermont. No tornadoes to worry about.

    Houses are 300,000, 400,000.
    It’s gone.

    Part of the reason I posted this is that it’s clear to me from looking at places like Ogden or some other places I don’t want to post that my knowledge is outdated and those places are rocketing out of my reach.

    Can you still just drop a trailer or a tuff shed on some land in VT, or has the whole zoning and building codes thing made that impossible

    That's cheap AF.

    If you want cheaper, buy some land zoned recreational, park an RV on it.

    Quite a few mobile homes in the $150K range in Ogden...

    Will always depend on expectations around work and quality of skiing. You can find some very small towns with small ski hills, but not much for employment and not much skiing. If the skiing is developed, it will have attracted a crowd already.

    Also, what's cheap? $200k? Not too many places in the US you can do that still, regardless of skiing.

    Also, how close to skiing do you want? 30 minutes? 1hr? 2hrs?

    Define good skiing - lol
    In Colorado, we specialize in the best low tide, wind blown skiing around.

    NOT REALLY.

    I’ll probably just delete the thread. Sometimes I forget everybody on here is rich.

    It’s fine. I’ll figure it out.

    I have spent my whole life skiing more or less every day. (Other than a couple years where I was surfing daily, and a winter where I was essentially homeless and living in company trucks while I was trucking).

    I don’t consider a place as having skiing if it’s hours of driving to get there

    Any major resort area is fucked.

    If you’re comparing to Bohemia but a longer season I would guess local hills out west.

    Shit hills in the west blow away the Midwest.
    Drop Snow King into Wisconsin and people would shit bricks.

    Casper WY has a ski area.
    Pinedale used to have a ski area. Hope it’s still running.

    Idaho seems like it got trashed by California.

    Maybe be eastern WA or OR has something?

    I’m feeling the vibe. As I slow down I think more about a chill town with mediocre terrain and minimal lines and crowds.

    This is patently absurd - there are still LOTS of places you can do this. Main issue is that they all pretty much suck.

    Maybe Red Lodge or Cooke City, MT. You can ski at Red Lodge ski area, or tour around the foothills of the Beartooth range during the cold months, and ski all the way into July in the spring.

    I was going to suggest Craig, CO... but the Boat is about an hour from there.

    Wasn't the criteria affordable? Red Lodge isn't very cheap and the skiing is really hit or miss. Cooke City has almost no inventory, is expensive, and extremely remote. Personally, I'd look at the I-90 corridor between MT and WA.

    Rural Montana.

    Draw lines from Bullings to Bozeman and Missoula, then from Lost Trail to Whitefish. Those are all out....but venture north of i90 and you should be able to find stuff in the small towns.

    But that creates a where will you work problem...
