It just depends on what's important to you. Specifically, how important is skiing to you?
I went to college in South Carolina and have been to ATL many a time.
Pros: women are hot, nightlife is fun, pro sports, and you'll appreciate any song by TI that much more
Cons: hot as shit in the spring/summer, traffic is awful, pretty ghetto in a lot of the city. And of course... lack of skiing. When you tell people you ski they'll assume you mean water skiing, and traveling hours just to get to Sugar Mtn in NC is a pretty big let down.
All in all I loved living in the south for the above listed "pros", but ultimately moved to Park City because I just couldn't stand only skiing a few days a year. That being said, if you're making decent money then you can fly out of Atlanta direct to just about every big ski destination out west for relatively cheap on Delta... so that's worth something.
@LANTASKIDon't come here, too many Yankee Transplants as is.
TheSeaCaptainSkiing in NC sucks. If your priority is skiing, it's a mistake. If your priority isn't skiing and you'd rather be golfing, then do it.
