Smile Looking for small mountain town

Currently living and working on the western slope of Colorado. Would like to move to a small mountain town in the near future. Areas considered would be, Montana, Arizona, Oregon Idaho, Washington, the smaller the better.
Anyone who knows of a great small town in the mountains, I would like to hear from you....

Thanks,

Tinapearl

Default small mountain town

Whitefish Montana
McCall Idaho
Sandpoint Idaho


New resort called Tamarack near McCall- big development going on there right now.

Don't bother with Sun Valley.

If you leave Colorado, you leave the sun....make sure you are ready for hard grey days. Still nice, of course, but the weather is different.

Leaving CO does not mean that you leave the sun. I live in WY now and we have tons of sun. Grew up in central MT and had lots of sun there. Western MT has lots of grey days - seems to happen more in the mountains than on the plains.

Lived/live/visit often the below areas. Hope this is helpful & not too generalized. Good luck with your decision. Never an easy thing to do
In Idaho:
Anything in the Panhandle, around I-90 and north, is a good bet.
In Montana:
From the Canadian border around Whitefish, folowing south from there along the western side is gorgeous. Pick any of them!
In Arizona:
If you want year-round access to decent fishing/hunting, you'll want to keep to the northern half of the state. However, Tucson in the southern region, boasts the southernmost ski hill in the USA - granted it might open only 2 weeks in an entire winter.
In Oregon:
I love the Silverton area. The high country desert of around Madras/Terrebonne is also interesting, with great volcanic mountains visible in the distance.
In Washington:
Sorry. I know nothing of Washington except Spokane. It's definitely NOT a small town.
