I live pretty comfortably here in Ohio with rent around 600 a month. Now, obviously I'd visit before making the choice to move (fingers crossed they will send me on a business trip), but I'm interested in hearing about the closest resorts to that area, off-season activities, that sort of thing. I've googled it quite a bit but would rather hear from people that know the area well.
Thanks in advance!
I grew up in the N. East and moved around a lot before landing in Denver. I absolutely love it here!!
Abay and Loveland are about 1 1/2 and about 2 hrs to Breck/Copper. Well worth the drive. Vail and Beaver are about 2.5 hrs. All dependent on weather and traffic.
$600 a month is not going to get a lot in the Denver area... definitely not what your getting for that in Ohio. However, you get much nicer weather, great boarding in the winter, hiking in the summer, and a fun city.
Your best bet is to come visit and check it out in person. One thing i've learned is until you see someplace its hard to know if you'll like it.
