In terms of dating, I would say Denver would be the only place I'd consider.

All of the mountain towns and many of the rural towns are man-fests.

And I find with a lot of younger women, many of them are granola girls that are not very feminine, or smoke weed or take the exercise thing till it's over the top and they don't have very feminine bodies. To me a wiry, all muscle, butch woman in bicycle pants isn't a turn on.

I mean there are some opportunities out there, but I probably wouldn't move to Colorado for the women.

Like most Coloradans, life will not be a constant titillation of outdoor activities. All those things are up in the mountains, hours away and require travel to get up to many of the places you can or would want to do these things. The reality is likely you'll be living down on the prairie with a view of the mountains, working in an urban environment.

you'll need to look at Denver, Boulder, or Golden. There's also colleges in Pueblo and Grand Junction but I don't think you'd be happy living there (not enough nightlife.)

Anywhere from approx 1 hour (Loveland-- one of the closest ski areas to Denver), 1.5 hours (Keystone & Breckenridge) to 2 hours (Vail), given no blizzard conditions or accidents. That time could easily double or triple depending on the conditions.

Boulder and Ft Collins gets my vote. Colorado Springs is pretty boring for what you are looking for, Denver is ok.
