Greely, Ault, Windsor, Fort Morgan... these are all 970 as well and they are further from the mountains than any front range cities are. Should they too be included with mountain towns?
Why don't we go back to being on the same team and hating people from California and Texas? The state is expecting 1 million new people to move here in the next 20 years, clogging our highways, ski runs and rivers. Where do you think many of them are coming from?
Just my two cents
