If you're really into boating there are better cities with a young population and better boating nearby. The problem we have is a lack of water. The poudre is only boatable roughly may 15 to aug 15, many would consider that a stretch, unless you consider low water laps on the lower narrows. And it varies wildly with the amount of snow we get in winter. Some years the season is much shorter. The awesome Big Thompson season we enjoyed this season was a fluke. All of that water normally runs from estes park thru a canal to a powerplant north of boulder. They had problems with the powerplant and canal this year and thus had to "divert" a lot of water thru natural watercourses, probably wont happen again for awhile... If I were really into boating and looking to relocate id check out the wet NW, lots of cool cities with a young population and tons of boating all year round.
