Looking for advice on moving to Bozeman
Hi I'm looking to move to from the Killington Vt area to Bozeman next year when I graduate college and had some questions. I'm primarily looking to move because of skiing and the area (small mountain city) so my first question is it a place with a good ski/nightlife scene? Also I've heard mixed reviews about the job market and was wondering if it hard to find work with a) a bachelor's degree and b) if I'm not looking for anything too specific. Any help would be great!
Bozeman is exactly a small ski town with an okay nightlife. It's a college town too, so there's a lot of young people.
As far as economy, I believe that if you want to, you will be successful wherever you go. there's a big tech industry here. the cost of living is high in comp to wages however.
It's a great town and an amazing place to raise a family. Good luck!

Good luck with the economy, and all that it is hard. But this is an up coming place as opposed to the east coast which is basically dead. Good luck.

Ah Bozeman... Poverty with a view!

Having lived in both places, I would say look at a bigger ski town with more job opportunities. Even with the prices of housing coming down, Bozeman's tech center (I worked for one of them that was the highest-paying) still does not pay wages on par with just the bare minimum. Visit first - I heard a lot of people from both areas swap - saw a lot of Vermont plates in Bozeman and several Montana plates in that part of Vermont.
I do miss it a lot though. Small towns are underrated and unappreciated, although some of the residents (the yuppies) are snobs.
