Default Russian Community in Colorado Springs

I am considering moving to the Colorado Springs area in the next few years. I have spend over a decade on the east coast and enjoyed great ethinc diversity in the area. However, I am ready to move on and away from the DC area's congestion and high cost of living. I am of Russian descent and would like to preserve the Russian language and culture in my family. Here in DC there is a large Russian community including Russian churches, schools, language classes etc. Is there a Russian community in Colorado Springs area? Thanks to all

I'm not sure what there is for Russian community here but I've run into three people in restaurants who were from Russia in the two and a half years I've been here. There is a Russian day spa here.

There are supposed to be almost 50,000 Russian families in Denver: Colorado Springs, Колорадо (Денвер): RussianTimes.Com & Baraban.Com Russian-speaking Community Information Resource.

About half of the building technicians that work at my high school are Russian, but I don't know enough Russian to ask them - sorry!

My wife and I just moved here a few months ago. I took Russian in college, but I don't remember a whole lot. I'd love to meet up with some folks where I could practice the language and learn more.

My wife, 3y.o. son and myself are planing to move to CS in about a month. We also want him to have some Russian speaking friends so that he does not lose the language. Any suggestions as far as what area of the city has more Russian speaking people?
