So wait, are you a skydiving instructor, possibly working out of Centennial airport? Possible to get an NASIOC discount?

You'll like Colorado. Other than the traffic and general idiots (of which there are few), it's a great state. What's wierd is the emphasis on healthy living here, nothing like what I was used to living in Buffalo, NY.

As far as apartments, there are a ton. Personally if I were to move anywhere in Denver, it would be the Tech Center. I live just north of it right now. Centrally located, has everything you need close by, traffic isn't too bad through there, and it's a pretty classy area.

Not a skydiving instructor but a fun jumper, and hopefully soon to be freefall videographer for tandem jumpers. Hellz yeah you guys can come. I was thinking of maybe getting a bunch of people together when I get there to head out to the Dropzone in Longmont..MileHi DZ for tandems and a way to get to know some people. Anyone?

I am working at GolfTec with "Tronner" as one of the teaching pro's! I am super pumped.

Taxes and cost of living are a hell of a lot less than anywhere on the east or west coasts. Anywhere cheaper is probably undesirable like the po' south or midwest.

The Tech Center location or the Park Meadows one that's opening soon? That's a pretty cool place, if you have any part time jobs there I'd be interested.

I disagree, it's quite a lot cheaper to live in portland OR, and I'd prefer it to denver. Less snow, has mountains, and within 1.5 hours of the ocean.

Like I said, "undesirable". Unless you like pissin' rain all the time. I don't miss the ocean at all since leaving the east coast. All the beach was good for was laying out and getting sunburned. And the northwest is even worse - can't go in the water without a wetsuit. Less snow means suckier skiing, plus there's a reason they call it Sierra Cement instead of powder on the wet coast.

Less snow? they board on Mt. Hood year round with no problems.
The rain is overstated, it rains during the winter, the summers are in the 80s and sunny. Not scorching hot like here.

No sales tax, so when I buy a car I don't have to pay 2k in tax. And it costs $35 to register your car for two years, not 350 a year.

Had seafood in denver lately? yuck.

Mt. Hood is a glacier. That's not powder. You could do the same thing up on Mt. Evans or St. Mary's glacier.

Tax is relative. If there's no sales tax, I bet they hammer you on income tax. For example, in Maryland, they have higher income tax and sales tax is 5% across the board. In Virginia, income tax is low, but you get slammed with 7-8% resturant tax and personal property tax on vehicles, just like here. Colorado, being a repooblican state like Virginia, taxes income much less, but nickles and dimes you to death with usage fees at parks and also makes up with sales and personal property taxes. So choose your poison, high income tax or high sales, and pp taxes. And if you think $350 pp tax is bad, it was twice as much in VA where 3% tax was twice as much at $750 every year. And that's in the rural areas. In Northern Virginia (DC suburbs), I paid almost twice that - 6%! Overall taxes here are lower than the east coast, but we get less services.

I'll take snow over rain all winter long. You don't know what sucky skiing is like until you've skied in pouring rain. Yes, it rains in the winter on the west coast as far north as Whistler. I think global warming is ruining the weather here, even. It used to never rain in the winter here, but this year it rained like 3 times last month.

I would like to see Portland. The metro area is getting WAY too crowded for me.

Roger - how could you not like a place that has a beaver as it's state animal?

HpiRally - welcome to Colorado.

It hasn't rained once down here.
The income tax isn't much more than CO's, which is pretty high for a state with such a high sales tax and property taxes.
