Been to Deadwood. I didn't know it was that much in the mountains!! I would say in addition to Deadwood, the following towns are near large hills/mountains:

Keystone, SD
Whitefish, MT
Kalispell, MT
Gaitlinburg, TN
Cherokee, NC

For a larger city near some mountains: Chattanooga, TN.

Agreed. By far the most scenic mountain town in the States (the lower 40 that is). Truly a breathtaking setting! Too bad the town is kinda lame.

Another favorite is the view of the Olympics and Hurricane Ridge from Port Angeles, WA.

Telluride, CO offers spectacular scenery and a nice historic commercial strip, but the developers are seemingly bent on squashing every bit of the old mountain town aspect out of this place as the multi-millionaires roll in.
