"Close to mountain skiing"

Fraser, Colorado is home to 1,219 residents who have pretty great views of the surrounding mountains. The town lies just north of Winter Park, which has some really great skiing. There are a handful of restaurants, both locally owned and fast food chain types, some businesses, and a small medical clinic. The main street that goes through town is where you'll find most of the businesses, and it's a typical busy street, but when you get into the housing area there are some great older homes as well as some newer ones. Due to the location of the town, home prices here are higher than the states averages, but incomes are a bit lower. The housing prices are in part due to some of the custom built homes in the surrounding areas which are multi-million dollar homes.

The main industry in Fraser is accommodation and food services, probably since many of the residents are employed by the ski resort or some of the local bed & breakfast places. The second most common industry is retail.

This would be a great town to live in for younger people who wanted to work at the resort or were looking to be ski bums. The people are pretty friendly, the views are nice, and it's close to an array of outdoor activities. The town is also really good for public transportation and has busses and a train.
