What are the towns in Summit County and which are you more likely to find a job in? How is commuting if you live lets say... 25 miles outside of town?

Keystone, Dillon/Silverthorne Frisco, Breckenridge, Copper.......All the towns are pretty much the same when it comes to jobs........Your best would be Dillon/Silverthorne, Breckenridge, or Frisco........Job's are very hard to come by up here because it is mostly second homes and touristy.......25 miles in winter forget it, where are you thinking???

It all depends on WHERE...... If you are on the east side of the tunnel that could be problematic. A more specific town/area would help.

Thanks so far. This is the most info out of any bulletin ive posted. I was initially looking into evergreen but Ive been wanting to move to breck for the past 2 years and then i met my girlfriend and things have changed. I still havent visited but it seems like such a friendly town to locals. Shes a hair dresser and is very good at it so I know that she shouldnt have too much of a problem finding a job. 10-15 miles isnt bad either by the way. I love the amount of snow you guys get and like I said, I love the town of breck. Havent researched other towns in summit though. For me, I'd want to get into law enforcement or fire department. I know it may take some time to get in so having a few jobs to bring in the cash wouldn't bother me if we moved there.

WOW.....I almost parallel your story completely..............I'm a hair stylist my partner is an EMT...........I moved to Evergeen in February and didn't like it, great town but just not far enough in the mountains for me, so I moved to Dillon.......It shouldn't be hard to find a job as a stylist, that's why I love what I do, but my partner had an extremely hard time finding a job in the emergency field. He had to work a couple of months for a hotel as a housekeeper to meet people at Keystone, then got a job with Keystone Emergency Services and LOVES IT.

-Good luck

Well in Clear Creek County you'll get about 1/3rd more for your money, BUT, having to drive west through the tunnel can be a real drag!! In the winter you'll have non-stop ski traffic, and it's not uncommon to half stop & go all the way from Idaho Springs through the tunnel, even when the weather is nice. If the weather gets bad and they close the pass (there's that word again), they'll stop traffic at the tunnel every hour to let the hazardous trucks go through. Georgetown or Silver Plume might not be too bad, but you're probably better off staying west of the divide if working in Summit County.
