Meerame I greened you a suggestion but wanted to add to it.
My town is VERY social. Very united.
1 hr from skiing.
Cycling & Hiking is HUGE here
We are surrounded by National Forest.
Numerous large lakes within 10 min
Resorts & campgrounds.
Snowy winters
Good chance your husband's already visited here if he's a Mountain Biker

If you can work from home part of the time, it's great.
Otherwise the commuting is likely- at least 30 min to as long as 1 hr 30 min
It is less expensive, by far, to live here than the Bay Area
Cycling straight from the house is par to the course here
Endless routes/trails/roads
It's so beautiful here
If you are recreation oriented, you'll love it
Very safe here

Hi Jasmine. I'm a bit dense when it comes to managing this site - you greened me a suggestion? Although I assume you mean Truckee?

When you asked about moving to Longmont/Boulder a few weeks ago I almost suggested the general Lake Tahoe area. Depending on what you are looking for places like Truckee or just into Nevada could be perfect.

btw, I think you would be happy in Colorado. I just think you might like the Tahoe area better. I hope that helps.

ETA: A lot of people in the Boulder area talk about moving to Truckee, Bend, Boise, Moab, or Flagstaff for lower cost of living and an easier lifestyle. That's why I thought of Truckee originally.

Oh, okay. I would love Tahoe actually. But the husband does not want to be in a full on winter situation. That is why the front range in Colorado is top of our list. We are considering Folsom, CA too. But I think we rather have 3-4 months of cold weather vs. 3 months of intense heat. We did visit CO this past weekend and Louisville is now top of the list.

I am not sure about Nevada, but my husband has a friend who just moved to Carson City and there is mtn bike discussion on another site about Reno being a great area right now. Maybe I'll explore that further. Need to see housing prices and how the schools rate.

Has "the husband" researched the winter weather situation in the Front Range?

and ran the 'tax-implications' of NV vs, CO.
Important during your 'earning years'.

NV may mean a 10 yr earlier 'retirement'. (or not). Wages can be higher in NV depending on his field.

Both places are decent for biking in winter,

Ha, ha - he lived in the front range in the early 90s, so he (we) know. It will be an adjustment for sure though. But we are both looking forward to being at least 2 hours closer to skiing, downhill and nordic.

Husband will hopefully be taking his current job with him, but he is a software developer and the job opps in Colorado is one reason we are leaning toward there in case things do not work out in the long run. Reno while appears to be growing and has lots of CA implants as well, does not look as promising.

I do a lot of work in Reno and agree with the above. It is a lot better, but Denver is a much, much bigger city with many more jobs.

I disagree, particularly in the metro Denver area.
