I am a search engine optimization strategist, so as long as I have a laptop I can work. My husband's business is a bit trickier as he has an office in Perth and We live in Malua Bay on the other side of the country. We are working on restructuring it so that it too can be run from anywhere. Not quite sure how yet but where there is a will there is a way. The wonders of the Internet!

We are so looking forward to spending a month there next March. We will be trying to immerse ourselves into the local community, as opposed to just vacationing, as much as we can in such a short time frame to try to get the best feel that we can of community life there.

Bozeman is a great town for skiers-not as sunny as CO-but it stays pretty cold during the Winter and the snow doen't get hammered by the sun as bad as CO in between storm cycles.

Bozeman was ranked last year as the number one ski town in the US by powder mag.

We moved here last season from CO and have really enjoyed it. Had some good days at Bridger, but my favorite is Moonlight. Very few people, and some good steeps off the Headwaters lift (think Aspen Highlands) BS is great as well, but expensive for a season pass (1k$)

The problem with Bridger is that it gets very crowded on a powder day and all the college students track it out in a couple of hours-even on week days. Still a lot of fun terrain-and the new beacon required terrain off the Schlashmans lift is awesome.

Bozeman is a great town/small city-good vibe, friendly

Been in Bozeman a month and love it. We did extensive research and avoided potential "surprises", but it has an even better feel than we orginially anticipated.

Bozeman is now "home".

Yes, that is how I discovered it and have been researching it ever since. The more I find out the keener we are to move. We would move faster if we could but restructuring my husband's business won't be a quick process. Nor will all the other logistics involved in an international relocation.

The look of the beacon required terrain scares me. I'm a bit older and have had a recent hip replacement. We don't have double black runs in Au and I really only enjoy the black runs when groomed or fresh powder (real powder is a rarity here).

Our 14 yo son, on the other hand is wildly excited about all the more challenging terrain. He is in a terrain park ski group here and loves what he calls "powder pigging". He is super keen to try out some of the "awesome" off piste stuff.

Bozeman is very bike friendly, dog friendly and hike friendly. It could be better for bikes, honestly, but it never hindered me. Everyone has a dog. And they go everywhere. Hiking is accessible and plenty easy to achieve right after work. There's Pete's Hill, the "M" and Sypes Canyon to name a few. Just clean up after your dog if you take it hiking! That's my one biggest gripe about Bozeman. Everyone has a dog, and not everyone cleans up after it. I have memories of hiking the "M" right after the snow melted and the trail was like a dog toilet. Gross.

Hike in town on the Galligator Trail. Main Street to the Mountains is a hiking trail project that is well supported. Much of the trail you are not even aware you are in the middle of the town, as it follows the creek, is surrounded by trees for the most part.
