If you're looking for a cell phone job, shoot me a PM and we'll talk when you get into town. I have a couple of connections in that field.

The neighborhood around Regis has been around. It's definitely an urban setting for Denver. The apartments in the area for the most part have also been around. They'll work, but don't expect anything super nice. I would say try to stay within four blocks of the University. The rule of thumb is the closer you get to Federal Blvd, the more sketchy characters will be around.

Heading south just past I70 on Lowell or Tennyson is not bad. In fact, I really like the neighborhoods in that zone. The thing is, it's kind of out of walking distance for the University. Certainly within biking. West of Regis is good too.

I have no info on the Sandpiper apartments except what I can find online. If it's the ones in Westminster, I'd say skip it. Those are a good distance from the University. You can certainly find something within walking or biking distance of the University for a reasonable price.

I don't live very close to Regis, well at all. I've been in the Denver metro for over 20 years though and have lived all over. I do have some friends I see time from time that live a few blocks from there. Next time I am in the area, I'll try to remember to keep my eyes open for some of the apartments around there. You might contact the University and see if they have rentals. I went to University of Denver and they owned a ton of rental properties around the school for a good price. I wouldn't be surprised if Regis does the same or has people to go through.

rode Copper and WP last winter for my first year with a pass. it was a great choice! i LOVED Copper and rode there 90% of the time but definitely had some decent days at WP too. this year planning to switch to the 3 mountain (Breck, Keystone, A-basin) just to try them out. last year breck and copper had the most snow anywhere around. even though this winter is yet to come i have a strong feeling that i will be back to copper next year - i really like it alot!

all the people i work with are loveland faithful. loveland has alot to offer, consistently expanding their terrain, closest to denver, cheapest "big" resort, less crowded. on the other hand it can get pretty windy/icy (just like winter park). WP and Loveland are on the east side of the continental divide while all of the summit country resorts are just between the west of the divide and vail. wind and snowfall can vary quite a bit across the divide.

there is a TON to do here. we have all the professional sports teams playing year round. even if your not a conventional sports junkie, there are about 60 home games for the rockies every year, tickets are cheap and its a blast.

with the exception of not being able to surf i contend this town has the MOST to do when compared to just about anwhere else. the weather is actually pretty mild, the snow melts quickly in the city during the winter, and even in the hottest days of summer the humidity is nil making it very bearable.

there is a strong food culture here as well with many quality vittles to enjoy from street vendors and food trucks to some really fine french and italian restaurants, some gastropubs and my favorite - the whole asian community represented most strongly by vietnamese in the west along federal blv., and koreans in aurora.

A few things you are wrong on.

Winterpark is on the West side of the Continental Divide. You know that pass you drive over from the east? I think it's called Berthoud Pass, that's the continental divide. Winterpark is on the other side of that pass, which would be West. It also gets about 100" more snow a year than Copper or Breck on average. Last year was an anomaly. Breck deserved it after the previous season where they barely cracked 200". Plus icy? Where the hell does that come from? Everything except Paresene's and the cirque is below tree line. If you're riding ice there you're doing it wrong. It's one of the more protected mountains from winds and such.

Loveland does lie on the east side of the divide, but out of all the areas, it consistently get the most snowfall along the Front Range. They also have one of the longer seasons. Not much in the way of expansion going on there. The Ridge has been the only addition in the last 10-20 years. Otherwise, it's the same mountain. You used to be able to hike to the terrain on the ridge. Their total acreage has been pretty much the same for the last 20 years. Just some new lifts (chair 9)to make accessing some of it easier.
