I liked that "one mtn for life" thread, but which place would you pick to retire to, considering year round weather issues, nearby off season fun, mellow terrain for old knees/backs, cost of living on a fixed income, interesting nearby town/culture/nonski activities, medical facilities (for old backs). I don't have a firm opinion, but the following come to mind: Deer Valley/Park City, Durango Mtn/Durango, Mt Bachelor/Bend, Tahoe/Reno, maybe even front range ski areas/Denver. Aspen would be great, but too expensive (I know a skiing retiree who chose Carbondale to get close with less insane housing costs). I've seen this topic discussed a few times in ski mags, but what do you guys think? Can anybody who's already made their skiing retirement choice offer lessons learned? Thanks.
