There is a dirty, dusty, hamlet in the state of sin that fits most of BnneJ's criteria.
Near world class rock climbing available in 40 minutes up to 7 months a year. World class climbing a mere 3 hours south. Kayaking and rafting in town, class IV-V two - four hours away away. The ocean is 3-4 hours west.
Kite surfing and windsurfing 20-30 minutes away. H20 skiing on any one of 7 lakes within an hour. Exceptional road and mountain biking everywhere. The first US citizen to win the Tour de France grew up training in our mountains, the "death ride" is held annualy in the local mountains. Triathalons, Ultra's, and the new rage, adventure racing, are staged locally. Training year round is not a problem. The sun shines 300 plus days a year.
Oh yeah, we have skiing too. Skiing on 400 plus inches of wet, sloppy snow, just ask the attendees at the first annual Barking Bears Meeting, they'll tell you all about our wet sloppy snow.
Did I mention that one resort overlooks this dusty hamlet is a mere 20-30 minutes away, another 5 or 6 resorts are 50 - 60 minutes away, a couple more are a 90 minute drive and one Mammoth resort is 3 traffic free hours south? Lift served skiing is assured from Thanksgiving to Memorial Day, sometimes through the 4th of July. The spring corn is world-renowned and the BC oppotunities are endless.
While most of the recreationalists are sitting in traffic jams on Sunday afternoons, I'm crusin' home at 70 mph on a traffic free highway. When I wake up mid-week and see the 10,000' peaks coated in a fresh blanket of 12 inches of snow, I know I can eat a casual breakfeast, stretch, and still be on the first chair for 2-3 hours of powder boarding before showing up at work for the day. And there are no personal state income taxes.
And this hamlet rarley gets mentioned as a place to live to ski. I'll never understand but I've been here 20 years and I'm not leaving anytime soon!
