Does anyone have any suggestions for ski towns to live in with a family that are similar to Crested Butte, CO? We like a mix of downhill skiing, nordic skiing, and mountain biking, and we like the way the community feels in Crested Butte. We don't like the glitzy resorts or the kinds of towns that are almost 100% condos.
We are looking for western US towns.
My wife is a dentist and we want to find a similar kind of town to buy a dental practice in. It requires us to just move wherever a practice is available, but then we don't have to worry about the usual career issues that many people have to think about in moving to a ski town. Don't care about nearness to shopping, airports, etc.
Thanks for your help,
