May as well make my first post on this forum here.

Here's 10 of my favorites from the year that I took (all from Sugarbush)

Organgrinder with some mid-mountain clouds in December:

The Bush really is a great area. If the MRV offered more in terms of civilization I could see myself being happy there.

The lack of civilization to me is a bonus (well if I could find a job within an hour). The issue is the crazy bi-polar politics in VT that would keep me away.

If I were to do the Northern VT thing again, I'd probably settle in Waterbury. Plenty enough civilization there, 30 minutes each to Bush, Stowe and Burlington.

Having lived in VT, ME and NH the politics of all really didn't change much in my life other than NH taxes being considerably lower. I'd be willing to deal with the higher VT taxes again for the superior skiing, but family will keep me here near the NH sea coast. Wildcat or Cannon are decent enough alternatives.

No way I would live in VT or ME with the taxes that they have.

If you are retired Maine has very low property taxes FYI

Income taxes in ME suck though

I really need to spend a week in the MRV to get a sense of whether or not I am capable of being satisfied there. Similar to smellytele, I am also somewhat attracted to the lack of civilization. Conway feels too busy for me sometimes. The towns around the MRV a little closer to the highway are also wonderful though, but there's something about being in the shadow of a ski area that I love though.

I live in Mass and couldn't agree more. The highways suck, the people on the highways suck, and the bridges suck. Why the hell do I live here again??:S

Agreed. Can't wait to get out. Western MA is nice, but anything close to Boston... why do I bother.

Loving Western Mass, such a change from RI and Eastern Mass. I either want to end up around Burlington or White River Junction after school. The future-ex wants Portland or Maine, would be impossible to get to VT areas from there though.

Because that is where the jobs are. I interview for a job up in North Conway once. It was a solid, middle class job in management and came with free skiing (almost) anywhere in New Hampshire! Most locals would have jumped on it. But it pays less than a third of what I make in Massachusetts.

Conway can be overwhelming in summer, but I really like the balance. It has enough dining and shopping options to fulfill all of your needs. I don't want a 90 minutes drive just to go shopping.

Problem with more should I say "remote places" as in Barlett, NH or MRV are the jobs or at least decent paying jobs.  The good jobs are limited and when someone gets one of the good positions, they never leave.  I am originally from Vermont and left for that reason.  NH while there are not income or sales taxes, most of the towns do have high property taxes which in balance may not be greater than taxed states but it can get close depending on the property you own.  Now if you rent or live small then NH is really good in that respect.

Before we bought the new house in September, I was really pushing her to move to the Lebanon Area, Darthmouth had a ton of jobs and with the lower cost of buying the salary discrepancy could has been absorbed relatively easily. She didn't want to move away from her family so, here I am.

My domestic dictator is not the problem. She was getting recruited for a job in Berlin, NH that paid substantially more than she makes in Boston. For skilled medical staff they pay crazy money in rural northern NH because they can't get anyone to move up there. All the candidates ask the same question: "What will my spouse do for a living?" They told her the standard answer: nothing. That is why they pay so much up there, and that we could live at a higher standing on her salary alone up there than on two incomes in Boston.

That's pretty funny, DD (not Dunkin Donuts either)!! I would love it if she was into it. I love my home and I am blessed to have it but we could have gotten something similar in Western NH. It is what it is. Just makes for longer commutes to the mountains. What the hell I don't need the sleep!

We moved to the area back in '99 and love it. My wife has family in the area, so that made it easier for us. Pretty much all of the major ski areas are easily day-trippable. Maine and the MWV push that a bit, but still doable. Whaleback is a great locals hill. I love that I can just drop my kids off anytime they're open and let them go. They always end up skiing with friends from school. In the summer, there's great XC riding at Ascutney and Boston Lot, and the same easy access to the ski areas that offer lift-served biking. Then there's all the lakes and hiking. Throw in the cultural opportunities that the college and the Lebanon Opera House provide and it's pretty much perfect in my opinion. My wife's only complaint is a lack of "real" shopping :)

I actually love the amount of civilization in the area and have often thought about whether I could live there. Good selection of restaurants and enough stores in the valley with the basics that you need on a weekly basis. The biggest concern I have is finding a job that pays close to what I make in NJ.

I'm amazed how a few pictures by me of Sugarbush has completely derailed this thread into a discussion on where to live instead of favorite pics of the season!
