Are property taxes in Colorado lower than in other states?

Definitely, mine are $1,400.00 a year less than when I lived in Montana, for basically the same priced and sized home.

Does Colorado have extreme winters?

It depends on where you live. In Gunnison, it's definitely colder and more snow. In Montrose where I reside, the average snowfall is just over 20 inches, I haven't seen that in the five years I have been here.

Do you like craft beer?

Colorado is home to over 400 breweries across the state. The first time I even tried craft beer was in Denver in 2006. Colorado has some of the best.

Another thing that is so cool is it's a healthy state. Denver has been in the top 10 for fittest states.
