There is SO much that makes our special foothills area the perfect place to live. We’re just minutes from Denver, but miles closer to heaven. The profusion of open space parks, our mild weather above Denver & below Colorado’s famous high country, and our small town ambiance so close to a major city--these distinguish the foothills as an ideal blend of quiet rural living so close to the excitement of a major metropolis. The purpose of this Relocation Guide is to introduce you to the many reasons to settle into Evergreen/Conifer when you move to metro Denver.
The foothills area is just west of Denver, on the way to Colorado’s famous high country. We’re just minutes from Denver, but miles closer to heaven.
The foothills climate is dry & mild. At an elevation of 7200’ and 30 minutes west of Denver, we are cooler than the city, but warmer than the ski areas.
In summer, we drive with our car windows down, sleep with our bedroom windows open and enjoy gentle evenings on our decks--without bugs. We wear shorts during the day & a light jacket at night.
In winter, bright blue skies follow occasional snowfalls (our roads are meticulously maintained by dedicated county & state crews), the air is crisp (no smog alerts here), we skate on Evergreen Lake and we’re an hour closer to Colorado’s best ski areas.
Our mountain area schools are among the state’s finest and feature enthusiastic teachers, involved parents, modern facilities & a full range of extra-curricular activities to provide children with a superior learning experience.
Here are the area schools:
Neighborhood groceries, local eateries & household services are handy throughout the foothills. Regional shopping centers, big box stores & theaters--with their traffic congestion & noise--are a short drive away in Denver.
Several local volunteer fire/rescue districts serve the foothills. The largest is Evergreen Fire & Rescue. The districts are manned by paid staff and volunteers, train for both structure fires and forest wildfires and include EMT/ambulance services. Flight For Life helicopter service is based in Denver and operates throughout the foothills area.
