Default Moving to a Mountain -- But Where? Help!

Well boys, I've made up my mind!

I'm over the rat race, I'm debt free with quite a bit saved up. It's gonna be a huge lifestyle change and I kinda feel bad for quitting a great job when there are so many people struggling right now. I want to do this while I'm still in good shape too.

That said, I don't want to all the sudden be 55 years old working my tail off for the same promotion as 5 of my peers, they are actually educated and didn't have to work up from being a laborer - foreman - site sup - PM... so I'm sure they would get the awesome job first anyway!

I have quite a few friends here in Denver, but anywhere would be great. (I live in Golden here, but travel for work, so I'm not home much at all!)

I'm debt free and have the ability to go anywhere at this point in my life, throw some suggestions my way!
you guys have been all over it seems!

How do you do it at resorts?

Jobs?
- I have an electrical (Lineman/Splicer) background.. but I doubt that helps in these areas. I can always get back into it if things go south.. It's just everyday I have this job is the worst day of my life. it used to be so fun before I got into management.

- I'm not a very social person, any good jobs for the introverted types? If not I'm sure i could suck it up and be a waiter or something..

Housing?
- I wouldn't be against buying a Condo or if I could find some with realistic HOA fees. 200K is fine, but add another 300/month to that and it's a little ridiculous!

- What do you guys pay for rent? I hate paying rent and prefer to buy, but renting may be the only way!


Do you guys regret it?
I feel like if I just go do it I'll be able to make something work!
It's gonna suck having to pay for health insurance and driving my own vehicle again though

Thanks !
I'm sure you guys answer this shit all the time, I need to validate my decision making I guess!
