Considering move to Durango...

Hey CO forum members, looking for some advice from anyone in the Durango area. I've got a phone interview for a job in Durango coming up this week. Been researching housing/living costs up there for weeks and trying to determine good areas to look in. I've got two kids (8 & 5), so schools are obviously an important part of our considerations as well.

Any input from those in the area is welcome. I'd love to hear which schools are best and which areas to live in or avoid. I've traveled to Durango a few times and really enjoyed my short stays there, but hope to hear feedback from anyone who lives in the area about what it is really like living there.

Due to the ski area nearby, cost of living is a little elevated IIRC. Nowhere near Vail in cost, but higher than here in the Springs area. Little different weather than you are used to as well. Pretty area as you already know. Plenty of trails in a few hours of town for your TJ as well. You're already accustomed to being somewhat remote, as Abilene is isolated from DFW, etc, so the switch won't bother you. Other than that, I can't tell you much more as its been 10 years since I graced that town. I know some jobs pay a lot more out there than here, so it may cost a lot to actually live there.
