Powell, Cody or Sheridan WY (no income tax state with EXCELLENT school funding and REALLY nice helpful people) would be my choice (or Bozeman, MT) if you need closer to airport. Sturgis, or Spearfish, South Dakota also a good choice. (No state income tax in SD either, but poorer schools (SD vs. national average is poor due to poverty / NA reservations))


Colorado...Masonville is where I grew up, and it is quite nice, but quite over-run by Ft Collins people looking for a place to hike. (Was all ranches when I was a kid, and we rode all of it many times on our horses), no Mtn Bikes or snooty, yuppie, hikers. For east slope I would still consider Masonville, Estes Park or Woodland Park.

I would focus on West slope. Probably Glenwood or Steamboat Springs.


Close to an airport AND mtns, wildlife and potentially VERY nice neighbors (if you are lds) = Salt Lake City. Ogden is very nice too. MUCH less crowded than Colorado and better funded state (and not currently a political battleground).

I was raised in Sterling from age twelve.

Northeastern CO is highly underrated.
