I have come to one of those points in life when someone needs to move on and shake things up. Usually I let my life dictate where I should live versus going where I would want to live so this time I would like to try it different. I am looking to find a place to have hopefully have as a permanent home and settle down. To narrow it down I will list some criteria for my ideal place in order of most important, please keep in mind I have nothing holding me back no Wife no Kids and no other issues.
I love to snowboard, would do it everyday if I could so I would ideally like a place that is close to a snowboard area. I mean close by say 30-45 min max in distance driving. Also since I would like to maximize my time on the mountain night hours under the lights would be ideal as well.
I am into mountain biking and would like to get back into some serious rock climbing.
I prefer colder weather to hot weather.
City size would be medium. Not LA or New York but not _____ (insert smallest city you know here).
Also I am meaning to stay in the continental US.
Keep in mind these are just some ways to narrow things down.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
