Nederland would almost work, if you wan to ski Eldora and be close to Boulder. The town is small and not much to offer besides the basics.
Summit County has good resorts and the mountain town feel, it all depends on what amenities and things you want out of your town. You can find housing for $400,000 withing 30 min of Summit. Montezuma, parts of Silverthorne, Dillon. Now you can get much more for your 400k if your willing to drive a pass or live with a podunkier town. Alma, Fairplay, Leadville.
Idaho springs, and ski Loveland would be 25 min to Denver 25 min or less to the ski hill.

Georgetown has 4/4 SFH's listed in the 300's. It's only 10 minutes from Loveland Ski Area and about half an hour from A-Basin. Denver is about 45-60 minutes away, depending which side of Denver. Georgetown is a very cute little town that hasn't been overrun by crazy development either.

I see the OP posted this back in April, but anyways...

I would target Silverthorne. Nice town feel with around 3500 residents (has Car dealers, Target, Ruby Tuesday, Sports Authority, Outlet malls) and is 10 mins to Keystone and Breckenridge. Being right off I70, so only 70 miles to Denver and 30 miles to Vail.
