If you could live in any city in the mountains, where would it be?

I haven't been to Asheville, North Carolina. But the area looks nice.





There have got to be a lot of good mountain cities in the western U.S.

Asheville NC. It has the scenery, a great restaurant/food scene, thriving downtown and comes without natural disaster possibilities (quakes, fires), smog/pollution or water supply issues like many high altitude cities.

3 mile walk from my house to the Sandia Mountain foothill trails here in Albuquerque. There are stellar mountain biking trails around here as well. A 40 minute drive from the city to the 10,600 foot summit transforms from high desert to Colorado like scenery with ponderosa pines and aspen trees. I love our mountains.

Asheville, but I would prefer to live in the country well outside the city there.

It's a small city/town, but Bend, Oregon is a great Mountain town. It has a lot of amenities for it's size.

Mountain cities would all be in the western US. Are we talking mountains or hills?
