Also take a look in the Bitterroot Valley. You have a choice between Darby, Hamilton, Corvallis, Stevensville or Florence.

the problem with cooke city is that there is absolutely nothing there. i have been there during my stay at yellowstone. its a cool little town, but i can't imagine that i would find a job very easily. so far i think i am leaning towards red lodge and columbia falls.

The Missions are beautiful, in fact the drive from Ravalli to St. Ignatius is one of my personal "most beautiful drives in Montana." However, they are not like the Tetons.

What I meant by Teton like is that there are lots of steep sharp jagged peaks above the treeline and have a similar look. They look a lot more like the Tetons than say the much older Salish Range or the Whitefish Range.
Of coarse there are no Mountains just like the Tetons but the Mission Range comes about as close to that look as viewed from the Mission Valley as any other range in Montana with ridges and peaks of that nature. They are relatively new mountains with ice sharpened peaks that haven't been there long enough to have been eroded into forest covered bumps like the much older Salish Mountains.

Hmm. I like plains. Big flat or broken views. Mountains are okay in the distance but not looming over my shoulder. Hey, if we wadded up all the mountains and shoved them all to one end of Montana, I could have my flat, and our new inquirer could have his lumps, and we'd both be happy!

Cooke City is a very clickish town. As for jobs in Cooke City the Soda Butte is always for looking help.

Hey royhinkley........

rickers' quote very accurately describes the Missions. I believe you initially said you want to find a town SURROUNDED by rugged mountains--like Telluride, And you'll need a job (with decent pay as a chef)......IMHO you'll not find that situation in Montana. You may come close (mountains) up at Red Lodge, but if you did get a job as a chef up there, it would be very seasonal (maybe) June July Aug and Sept) and at a very low wage (5 to 10 $ per hour). And where do you draw the line between a "chef" and a "cook". I would guess a "cook" at one of the few places to eat in Red Lodge would get around "minimum wage" at best......if you could find an opening.

Don't take offense......just trying to be factual......after 30+ years in western MontanYou might want to check ou the area up around Stanley, Idaho.

Re the Bitterrot Valley....the mountains (Bitterroots) on the west side are fairly rugged (but not a rugged as the Missions), and the Mountains on the east side (the Sapphires) are very old, rounded and have 10 times as many "open park like" area as the west side.
