I would think there would be ample opportunity for PT's, no worries about a lack of eligible ladies or they being too rustic and rural due to small size and isolation of ski town if you wish to pursue dating or marriage.  Resorts not much or no further away than driving distances from some neighborhoods in resort towns.  And many resorts to choose from, combined with easy access to everywhere via an International Airport.

Just wonderin as to it not making the cut for you...?

Yup, still here just had a few thing to deal with and went north for weekend and I don't bring a computer. I was thinking SLC was out because it isn't really a "ski town" but having thought it through a little more it's n the running. I've actually partied a few times in SLC during the summer and I have to tell you there are a ton of hot hot women there.
It actually may be now the top choice. I've realized I should try to work at least part time and as much as I hate the city I need some night life, coffee shops etc...
Aslo, it's so easy to fly to so friends will be able to visit.

Just want to live a little and take that chance since I don't have my own family. Yes family is 1000000x more important than skiing and I would love one some day but until then why work my ass off if not happy?

As the saying goes in ski towns....."you didn't lose your girlfriend, you just lost your turn"

You seem to have a good, balanced outlook on this and are correct that this is the moment to try it - before you have obligations that will take priority. Who knows, you may find the vocation and lady of your dreams waiting for you out there. You should go for it. And stop thinking it over too much. There's no way you are going to know for sure ahead of time if it will work out or not. Worst case scenario, you spend a year in the West skiing and then go back to working your ass off if you decide you don't like it. One year at your age is nothing.

Dude, I'll say it again and then I'll STFU.

June 1
  • buy a Toyota Tacoma and a camper top
  • turn the steering wheel until the compass says "W"
  • drive around aimlessly for at least 4 weeks
  • be sure to hit CO, UT, WY and CA. WA, OR, northern NM and MT are probably worth a gander too
  • you'll know it when you find it

Don't worry about not being able to hit it during the ski season. 99% of the places you visit will have good skiing and you can learn all you need to know by talking to locals and reading stuff on TGR and here. Be sure to ask about the backcountry while you're doing it. You probably won't be hitting it right away but you will eventually.

Best of luck man. Start a blog. Big time kudos to you for wanting to escape the machine.

That's it right there. Just go! 

IMHO:  The whole lack of women thing is way overblown.  Sure there are more men in ski towns.
But the average quality of the women in ski towns far surpasses that of any city I've been too!

Clearly you have not been to Telluride during Gay Ski Week. Watching a couple in lime green his and his ski suits and matching skis, boots and poles get on a chair lift in front of you provides a 'different' perspective of ratios and the term 'ga-per'.

That's pretty odd, or funny that you are the one that found that funny. I learned it first hand while living in Crested Butte many many years ago. How's the Butt doing these days? Hope it hasn't change much since leaving in '91....

Good for you! I'm planning to move to Whistler this year or beginning of next. I haven't gotten the ball rolling yet but soon hopefully.

I like your last statement alot and I've used it myself.  There are alot of us on this forum thinking about moving to the mountains. How many of us won't do it because of fear? Probably most.  Fear keeps people from having great experiences and keeps them boxed in. The reality is people who are serious about trying the ski bumb thing for a year or so could pair up with others on the same level and share housing expenses to make the experience more affordable.  How many of us would take a risk like this with people they don't really know?  Probably few even though it could be a great experience.  Why? Fear.
