Bozeman in Skiing Mag's Top Ten

The September 2004 issue of Skiing Magazine listed the Top 10 Skiing Towns in America, and there was Bozeman, right at Number 4.

Skiing Magazine ran a 14-page feature that not only evaluated the superior skiing, but also gave a solid look at the quality of life in these communities -- the best legitimate jobs, the enjoyability factor and testimonials from local residents on daily life in each town.

The magazine searched high and low for the ideal towns by these criteria: population between 5,000 and 50,000; within 35 minutes of at least 1,800 feet of lift-served vertical; median home price, income and rental price; and snow stats that include acres, inches and vert. Here are their picks:

Top Ten Ski Towns in America
1. Jackson, Wyoming
2. Steamboat Springs, Colorado
3. Vail, Colorado
4. Bozeman, Montana
5. Hood River, Oregon
6. Truckee, California
7. Park City, Utah
8. Breckenridge, Colorado
9. Aspen, Colorado
10. Stowe, Vermont
