We're planning a move to Colorado sometime in the coming year or two - our daughters live in Denver and our son may be moving to Boulder. The outdoor lifestyle in Colorado will suit us very well and we're excited about the beauty, skiing, hiking and camping that will be in our backyard! We're currently spoiled having a warm, 10,000 acre lake just 1/2 hr away, home to our 240 SunDeck and our favorite campgrounds. Can any boaters in the Denver/Golden area tell us where you take your 20 - 30' boat when you head out? Recognizing that mountain lakes are cool, is there a favorite place within 3 or 4 hours where you travel to swim, ski, tube and laze for a weekend or longer? This will be our retirement home in a few years, we'll have free travel time before long so we don't mind driving a bit, just haven't had much luck with searches and advice so far. Thanks all!!
