I was offered a electrical engineering job in Bend a couple years ago at a engineering firm and again recently at Facebook in nearby Prineville.
It’s a dream to be in a ski town and not be broke. However I still felt uncomfortable with not a lot of options in town if something happens. Worst case I could relocate to Portland.
Right now pretty much your only option is Salt Lake with it being 15 minutes from park city, BCC, LCC. Downside is the people. Hint: everyone of the hundreds of engineers at the airplanes factory I worked at there was imported from out of state and there was a full time person chopping up $5000 parts all day long for the trash.
If you expand your scope to 90 minutes drive to ski you have lots more options.
ShastownSoldierIs Bend big enough to provide professional jobs that pay better than typical ski towns? Anybody working in tech, engineering, law, ect making a good living and living good?
