I travel constantly,when not home in Phoenix or Pittsburgh,so I have stayed in Bozeman several times and it was better in the early 90's...not as crowded.Growth is death for this lovely area.
Oh,an earlier poster mentioned alot of clear blue sky during winter months in Bozeman? Hmm.I spent a year there once and clear blue skies?I don't know.Good luck though.

You sound like the kind of guy we would love to have move here! (Not a California/Hollywood type) and I think you would like it here. MSU is a great university and it's presence means that the population of the area is varied and intelligent - you can always find a niche of like minded people to hang out with. The outdoor amenities here are top-notch and mostly free ( except for skiing) Lot's of trails in town, hiking, camping, floating, climbing, hunting and fishing of every kind from kid's stuff to world class fly fishing. We have Shakespeare in the Parks headquartered here. InterMountain Opera puts on performances once or twice a year with top name singers. We have a beautiful historic downtown and breathtaking scenery - Mountains on view from anywhere in town. All of this and the best summer weather imaginable, makes the winters bearable even for a UK transplant like myself.
Housing is expensive although now is a great time to buy if you can pull it off. Buying in an outlying community and commuting is definitely an option. Check out Belgrade, Livingston, Three Forks, Churchill, Manhatten. Good Luck!

Not to mention if your wife left you for moving to Bozeman, just remember it is a college town and the views get better and better as the weather starts to warm up if you know what I mean..

D'ya suppose that is what BritAnn meant in her post when she mentioned "breath-taking scenery"?

Of course, in my condition, it wouldn't require a whole lot to take away my breath.

Yep, chasing academic jobs seems to be like trying to catch flies with chopsticks. Hones the mind and lowers the expectations. That said, I may have to come over in the warm season sometime and take in some of that Bozeman "scenery!"

Since I have been in Montana, after ten years, I've seen a but of a change with the weather. Apparently we've been coming out of a ten year drought. Now the winters and springs have been moist, and there have been record snowfalls.

Either way, I grow Japanese Maples in my front yard in Bozeman. I didn't cover them for the winter, and they were no more than 2 years old. They seem fine, even though they were buried under snow all winter. A few dead twigs broken of, and some new buds are forming slowly, even after the 6" we just got. Tough little trees.
