Cheapest place to live with Snowboarding?

I’m young and poor, but I enjoy snowboarding. I work as a baggage handle so I would like to live somewhere with an airport for work. I don’'t mind the snow, in fact I really enjoy it, hence snow sports. Getting tired of high prices for groceries, taxes, and gas. Preferably I would like to be close to nature and mountains. And preferably a Mid-Northern state, such as Montana.
