It’s amazing what the average person sacrifices to live in a ski town.
Including myself. I’ve done the commute up and down the Snake River Canyon, I’ve done the living in my truck routine, and I’ve paid a pretty penny to live in town so I can bike and walk everywhere instead. Like everyone else, I move every 6 months here as rent (and your work hours) go up and up and up. I read Outside Online’s article about Jackson, Wyoming not only being the most expensive ski town in the United States, but the most economically unequal town too. Because I live here, and am one of those residents making less than a $30,000 salary, I experience it firsthand.
