I don't car for a night life and would prefer a quiet community with heaps of snow and mountains and a lake close by but with room for the horses. I would prefer living West to North West of Denver (according to a storm tracker friend of mine they have less tornadoes on that side). I want Denver no more than an hour away because my kids and I want to be able to go to the zoos, museums, and concerts ect during the week so I don't want to go too far from a place that has those to offer. Is there even such a place in Colorado?
Thank you
What I always found with Colorado was that it is a zero sum game. For something you gain, you have to take something away. You'll have to compromise and figure out what works for you. And really the one way to do that is to take an extensive trip.

If you want the amenities of artsy stuff and shopping then ski areas like Breck and Vail have all that but you wont be having a spread with horses on it unless you live 30 minutes plus away. Ski resorts then probably wouldn't appeal.

One area you might want to look is out US 285 along that road up to Kenosha Pass.

North of Silverthorne on Hwy 9 is a good area to look

I think you're really looking for Evergreen, OP.
