SinkHole Really excited to get into splitting along with even hitting A basin and Loveland. Fly fishing, hiking, off-roading...

killclimbz I know you were talking about backcountry access. It's about 90 minutes to Bert from that area. There is also a strong contingent of splitters in the area. Hike for Turns and Zach live in the area. I think I also count...

Anyway, I do have to say I would not buy around Colfax. The Stapleton redevelopment area is nice and very close. It also has great highway access to I70. Making your tip up to the mountains fairly direct.

An up and coming area seems to be between 11th and Alameda. Though it may never happen. You can definitely find a lot of house for your buck in that area.

The other nice thing is airport access is quick and easy. You are across town from the mountains, that is the drawback. I don't find it horrible.

Did I mention all the micro breweries? There are some wineries not that far off too...

For the most part I would try to stay west of I225. You can find decent living close to the CU campus. If you find some areas you are interested in you can PM me. I've been in the Denver area a long time. I know most of the neighborhoods in the area until you get North of 120th.
Ha ha.... nice! Looking better by the minute!

There are "trendy" neighborhoods in those areas but you are going to pay out of your ass to live there.
Thanks for the tip. Will check it out.

linvillegorge Don't get me started on Boulder. There are many things I like about Boulder, but there's no way I could live there. I'd got nuts.

Argo I've lived in vail 3 years and lived in various places in Texas most my prior life. There are fucking idiots in all of these places.

I would not live in el paso or Colorado springs unless I had to, life sometimes takes you to places you may not wanna be. I also can't stand ALOT of front range people mainly the boulder/ft collins brobrah types.

If I had to move to EP I would skip ruidosa and head up to Santa fe mtn. For long weekends Taos is pretty sweet as is wolf creek and Durango plus the added bonus of silverton.
