I have lived in a couple of cool mountain towns so far: Boone, NC & Flagstaff, AZ. Both were great places to live.

By mountain range, here's where I'd want to live if I was choosing now:
Appalachians: Asheville, NC
Rockies: Durango, CO
Cascades: Bend, OR
Sierra Nevada: Not sure...Mammoth Lakes, CA maybe

Used to live right outside Woodland Park, CO. Praying we move back soon.

EPIC views of Pikes Peak
It's not too big, not too small and it's a mostly laid back family-oriented community. More "hippie" than "hipster". And if you want the hipster/mainstream culture, Manitou and CO Springs isn't that far.

So far, looks like CO and NC have the best mountain towns.
