Well looks like I'll be getting a job on the oil rigs in the area, I have visited Denver briefly and really liked it. Plus Colorado just seems like my kind of place. I'll tell you about myself and what I'm looking for:

I am Canadian, 22 yo single engineer. Don't want somewhere super-religious or family based town. I would like somewhere not too densely populated. I really like the mountains, skiing, golfing. I guess I'm looking for just chill town in the mountains, with plenty of young women. I can tolerate environmentalist, but obviously don't want to move somewhere where my profession automatically makes people hate me. Oh and I will be working in Wyoming and North Dakota mostly so somewhere on the north side is preferable.

Based on this, anybody have any recommendations? Thanks!

why would you consider Colorado when work is elsewhere?

Long shifts on and off when on the drilling rigs... Don't really have any interest in living in Wyoming or North Dakota

Mountain towns/hot young single women don't really go together. Your best bet is the city in Denver or maybe even one of the college towns like Ft. Collins.

Jamacou, I think almost any town outside the Front Range will suit your needs. I can't think of any town except Boulder that dominantly "eco/environmentalist", so just pick any of the towns in north-central Colorado. they're all fine.

I agree with Steamboat. However, any of the ski resort towns will have lots of young women. How close do you need to be to major transportation corridors? Steamboat is pretty isolated.

transportation is not really an issue. I grew up in Canada and currently live in Montana so isolation is not a problem. I will look more into Steamboat, thanks guys!

The reason that I brought up “transportation corridors” is because you have to get from point A to point B sometime. Depending on where your job is located, it could be quite circuitous from Steamboat to areas north and east.
