So I just graduated with a semi-worthless degree from college and have no real plans for my future. Trying to figure out where to go that would be cool and I could boat/ski a lot and probably not be in colorado. Grew up here and need a change, thinking about Bozeman, Boise or maybe Cali somewhere. OR and WA are also always a prospect. Any suggestions on good places, preferably somewhat cheap living w/ decent jobs, etc., of course this would be cheap by colorado ski town standards so in reality not that cheap. Any suggestions would be grand.

Zach.

bozeman is definitely cheap living although job wise it can be tough to make a great living. My brother lives there and I lived in montana for 6 years. If I ever go back to live in montana it would be bozeman. Skiing at bridger bowl is sweet for a little resort. The terrain there is like a mini jackson hole. If you are willing to hike a little you can ski sweet lines off the ridge. You also have big sky resort if you want something with more space that is about hour and a half away. Great boating for sure.

Boise seemed like a great place- a good sized town, which means jobs; access to a long season of boating and good skiing; and relatively cheap cost of living (compared to CO). I would consider that area for sure. NoCal has the most amazing group of rivers, but the cost of living can be high where the jobs are. My buddy in Bozeman has a postgraduate degree and he's been struggling to find a decent job in that town for the last 3 years.

My recommendation: you're never too young to buy a home. The sooner you get on that cycle of buying houses (or condos, for that matter), the faster the equity gets built up. Get your folks to co-sign a loan if possible, get a roommate and get them to help pay your mortgage. Do it as soon as you can.
