Tahoe-Reno wouldn't work for me personally. If I was going to live in the mountain town, it has to be drivable at least to a Hub airport. Commuting to work via a an hour or two drive, and THEN an airplane ride would completely suck and waste your free time away. So Breck to Denver would work, Park City would work, Seattle Suburbs would work...like Enumclaw, Issaquah, or something out towards Stevens Pass, or Hood River or Sandy in Oregon.
Bend to Portland is a little far. Anywhere in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Spokane, are all too far from hub airports.
