I'm actually an oddball here. I moved from CO to NH due to work. CO has some of the best off road trails next to UT that I have done. I still have family there so "visits" to see them will certainly happen. (Free room and board, right?) With that said, my reason for leaving was there were no jobs there that fit me. Also, CO is growing and growing very fast. I was stationed there while in the military from 2007 - 2010. I got back there in 2015 and it had exploded. Places were more packed as well as the roads. I can't really compare it to here, but will have to defer to what others have said. I only got here at the beginning of December. Though, NH certainly seems beautiful and VT roads look like fun.
