Me again.

In my first post, I've asked about Park City to find out how living in the city is fairing for residence living in the city. You guys are absolutely right when you said the houses there are pretty expensive whether one rents it or buys it. So, I then asked about how life is fairing for residents living in an apartment place called Elk Meadows which is located in Park City. But thus far, I didn't get any answer. Anyway, this place, Elk Meadows Apartment Community is said to be the cheapest apartments to rent in Park City and for awhile now I'm beginning to be come interested in living in Park City in Elk Meadows where I can have a big view of the snow covered mountains and all its beauty. Otherwise I would much rather skip the apartment living and go rent and settle in a small, yet spacey one bedroom house with an extra room where I can set up a private workout gym in.

What I really want is to live in cities located only in huge snow belt areas in Utah, including Park City, Midway, and Heber City. Would these cities be the right ones for me to live in? I am a huge winter bluff and I would rather live in the snow belt areas of Utah where I can enjoy the winder sights and sounds most of the year and have easy access to shopping places and dinosaur sites. One of the huge reasons why I want to move to Utah and settle there for good is because of not just snow, but also because of many dinosaur sites, museums, theme parks that are out there. Utah is indeed Dinosaur Country, you know. I'm a huge dinosaur and winter bluff and I want to gain access to snow belt areas where I also have access to excellent dinosaur museums and sites and dinosaur theme park areas where I can go and further my studies about them. Is there any cities with dinosaur museums in the huge snow belt areas where I can go and make a home there which features cheap housing rentals and places where I can go to work and earn a living there?

You may want to look in Morgan and Summit Counties (just east of the SLC Valley). Towns like Liberty, Eden, Mantua and some of the other Wasatch Mountain Valleys do well in terms of snowfall...and are within a doable drive to the dinosaur attractions in Ogden, Lehi and Provo.

There is dinosaur interest in eastern Utah...but they get a lot less snow. You'd have to live in the Uinta mountains or book cliffs....and there aint a whole lot going on there :-)

Hey... Hit City Data Forum "Moving to Park City". There are about 3 different areas where you may find answers to your questions. I am moving to the Park City area as well & found a lot of information in those areas. Good luck!

The dinosaur museums I am aware of are Ogden, Lehi (Thanksgiving point) and vernal. The one that would have the snowbelt area you are describing would be Ogden and someone already mentioned Eden, Morgan, etc. These are beautiful areas.
