BV sucks, sounds like you'd be better off in Eagle or Summit county (Vail, Silverthorne, Edwards, Frisco, etc.)

Durango is probably the best bet, if you want to live in the mountains. Excellent creeking and DH, but the skiing options aren't all that great unless you want to drive to Silverton. But it's an awesome town.

If you want long seasons on all those options, I'd recommend the Front Range- like Golden. That'll give you access to the Poudre runs. Lots of choice during the runoff season. the DH options are good. Skiing is obviously a drive.

If your from New York....I'd say Vail is the place to be......That's as close to the middle of it all as you can get.

Crested Butte; Aspen/Carbondale/Glenwood Spgs area; Durango; Steamboat. Also, if you don't have to be in CO then consider Toas NM.

Colorado kind of sucks. You should check out Nebraska.

forget Colorado - there's already a surplus of gnar dudes & dudettes here crowding every rver, run, trail, & slope and the place can't handle the population growth that's occurred already, much less what's expected with all the gnar dueds planning to come here in the next 30 years. You need to go to Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, or somewhere that still needs gnar dudes.

What's funny is that me and most of the people responding to this post are directing you to someplace OTHER than where they live...
