Boulder is not a mountain town. Mountain towns to me are actually in "the mountains". Just because you can see the mountains doesn't qualify to me.

Probably to meet your needs, there is a lot of opportunity for a house with a few acres between Estes Park and down to Blackhawk.

Frisco is a ski town service town. It's not bad, but you will not find isolated parcels of land nearby.

Telluride is very isolated. You are hours from any city.

Haha I wasn't saying Boulder is a mountain town, I was just noting that even though it is not, I have really enjoyed my visits there. And thank you for the regional advice, that is good to know I'm from MN, so the layout of this area is foreign to me.

For some reason the area around South Park and Jefferson just draws my desire. I always end up hiking and camping up there for it's proximity and beauty. Not too far from Denver on 285 and you can always shoot up Hwy 9 to Breck for a mountain city. There's some good sized parcels around there for a fair price.
