People mention skiing in NC. What a joke. For as far south as NC is the snow will melt in no time even at a high elevation. Some of the largest mountains on the east coast are in NC but the base of the mountains are already at least 4000 feet. Not much vertical at all. Need to be West Virginia and points north for significant snow.

5 pages of conjecture, 2 or 3 posts with stats.
Another day online, it seems.

Part of finding the perfect outdoorsy town (aren't all cities outdoors?)
is not having to share it with millions of transplants. As such...
I doubt you'll find people, like me, who've found heaven, and
are willing to swing wide the gates to let the rabble in.

If we can help it.

...add one cryptic, pointless post to that

Actually a comparison of great outdoorsy cities is pretty objective...there's not much room for conjecture in comparing weather patterns, snow pack, elevation, open space, mountains for climbing, rivers for kayaking, etc. Either a place has it or they don't.

When we start getting into conversations about transplants (aka 'the rabble'), that's when the conjecture comes in in.

I pretty much agree with this statement as well. The snowpack in NC during the winter is pretty paltry.

Don't forget Salt Lake and Boise. Both beautiful and literally next to the mountains.
