My wife and I are looking to retire near the mountains and ski more often. I have 10 years on her so I get to ski while she works! She can work from home. Here's what we are considering. Best area to get some acerage and be close to skiing. Best state for taxes, etc.
Here's what we are looking at. Park City and SLC area. Great skiing close, taxes high. Lots of other stuff to do in off season.
Colorado: Colorado Springs for lifestyle but couple hours from the skiing. Steamboat-isolated but other larger ski areas are a weekend trip.
Montana: Big Sky area and access to other big ski areas for a short trip.
Wyoming : Jackson Hole or Targee-No state tax in Wyoming.
Thoughts.?? Other suggestions?>
