So I’ve saved up a bunch of cash and plan on walking away from my fancy finance job to shred for the winter. Based entiresly on terrain preference righht now I’m looking at Big Sky/bridger and Alta/Snowbird, here are my concerns;
Big Sky overall terrain and backcountry access seem amazing but where do you live? Trying to avoid buying a car and it seems like living in Bozeman you’d be sitting on busses 3 hours a day, anyone done this and made it work? Is a car necessary?
Ski bumming Alta/ Snowbird also seems like my wet dream, except I love backcountry hits and I have heard that there are strict gate policies (closed for most of winter). Also seems like you lose out on the real ski bum culture scene living in SLC - any comments helpful
