HELP: Advice where to live for next winter: N. Tahoe, Whistler, Nelson, or Bozeman? single 25 yr old

Thread Starter 

ski season only. im interested  meeting girls..preferably with some depth to them. im in recovery so don't drink or really go out to bars that much but know thats what attracts younger ppl. more importantly want to avoid pretentious people. cool town with relaxed people who are real..I know whistler seems to take the cake for girls but I know nothing else about this town as a whole..interests are yoga, meditation, outdoors, live music (don't expect this to be anywhere), food...not looking for a hetty scene.. just not an Aspen/Jackson "scene"

 

favorite cities for u to get an idea: austin, nashville, charleston, new orleans, asheville, san francisco

 

would like to check out santa fe and durango as well

Whistler has more girls, but meeting them as a first year visitor outside of the bar scene will be hard especially at 25 and only staying for one season. Also do not go to Whistler if you want a relaxed and non-pretentious scene. Skiing powder in bounds is also extremely competitive and it takes a few months to learn the routine of where to ski and when. Nelson is the opposite, I'd go there if you want to come to BC.

Aspen/Jackson have a hetty scene?


Quiter!

You're cities + interests list = Boulder. Take a cool girl you meet in yoga class skiing. I'd drop the 'pretentious' requirement, though, as real people tend to be found more in what you do than where you live. Yoga + meditation + outdoors can mean meeting both deeply balanced and deeply unbalanced people, and those with depth usually are a bit of both.

Now, to your question of a resort, sorry to say my first thought was Aspen or similar. You did lead with a pretentious requirement while looking for unpretentious people biggrin.gif.

Why limit yourself: Consider heading overseas to the Alps. More genuine and interesting towns, a chance to try new food and culture, easier to get to larger cities, etc. Plus, being an American staying overseas gives you instant conversation. 

 

Being fairly close to a big city would be key if I were in your shoes. So much of small ski-town social scenes seem to revolve around drinking that it would be nice to be able to have somewhere to escape and do something more meaningful. I assume you're in alcohol/substance recovery so want to avoid drinking scenes altogether?

There is probably no worse place to meet women than a ski town in terms of ratio of men to women. Not sure you're going to find a whole lot of difference in terms of social milieu between one ski town and another.  You don't say if you're planning to work or just ski, but certainly the easiest way to meet people is to get a job.  And while a lot could be said for spending a season in the Alps good luck getting a woman to talk to you. Go where the snow is and let things run their course.  Now all you have to do is figure out where it's going to snow next year.

i would agree with JoeUT and  if given the option, expand your horizons to try some foreign travel.

But if you happen to have enough game to swing it, don't forget your Gopro.
