I live in Breckenridge, CO. I am taking pre-reqs to get into nursing school.
The main hospital in Summit and Eagle Counties is in Vail. It is called Vail Valley Medical Center. There are satalite "stations" around the counties. I would just go to their site to see if you can get any info on salaries.
My husband lived in Vail for 10 years and taught skiing at for Vail Resorts. (That is the company that owns Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Arapahoe Basin ski areas.) Vail has the most acerage-wise for skiing of all the resorts. My husband hates the skiing in Breckenridge compared to Vail!!
Vail, out of all the places in Summit and Eagle Counties, is the most expensive place to live. Most people in Vail proper are second homeowners and not "locals". The locals tend to live on the outskirts of Vail in Avon, Edwards, Gypsum, Eagle because it is too expensive.
Housing in Vail ranges on the low end a house for $350,000 and up. One-bedroom condos start at $120,000 approx. Townhomes for $250,000 approx. Something to keep in mind is, in general, the closer you live to the ski lifts, the more expensive.
The mountain biking (we are big mountain bikers) is great in Vail. There are trails all over.
Also, not too far away is also Moab, UT (3.5 hrs away) and Fruita, CO (2.5 hrs away near Grand Junction). Moab is a mountian biker's paradise. They have "slick rock" to ride on. Hard rock formations that your tires grip very well on. It is definitely advanced riding and too much for me!! But, my husband can't get enough of it. Fruita, CO is more intermediate and beginner riding, and it is my favorite place!
The summers here are the best, 80 degrees every day. They are short, but beautiful.
Any other question, feel free to email me!
