A little about Conifer Colorado

Conifer, Colorado is an absolute paradise for those who love the outdoors! Surrounded by stunning pine forests and breathtaking mountain views, there’s no shortage of open space parks like Staunton State Park and Flying J Ranch, offering endless opportunities to hike, mountain bike, horseback ride, snowshoe or fish. And if you’re into off-roading, the amazing Slaughterhouse Gulch is definitely worth exploring. If you’re more of a water lover, you can go canoeing, paddle-boarding or ice-skating on nearby Evergreen Lake. And don’t miss the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison for some world-class music concerts. And if you’re a ski enthusiast, the drive to Breckenridge or any of the other world-class resorts is just over an hour away. 

As for the cost of living in Conifer, the median home price in early 2022 ranges from $700,000 to $850,000, which might seem steep, but the quality of life and available amenities more than make up for it. Plus, property taxes in Colorado are very low, a major advantage compared to other states. 

The active community of friendly locals in Conifer are mainly transplants from other areas, excited to embrace the magnificent mountain lifestyle. With plenty of opportunities for hiking, fishing, biking, camping, hunting and skiing, the residents of Conifer certainly know how to enjoy life. The town takes pride in all of its small businesses, making it easy to become a regular and become part of the friendly community. 

Since Conifer is located between 8,200 to 10,000 feet in elevation, winter conditions vary depending on your home’s altitude. However, snowstorms are typically manageable, with most storms delivering only a few inches of snowfall. The county does a great job of plowing the roads, so it’s generally not an issue. Temperatures can get below zero at times, but dressing in layers and warm socks will keep you comfortable. And with the lower humidity levels and intense sun, even 35-degree days can feel like 55, making for a more comfortable winter experience. 

Looking for good schools have options from elementary to high school, both public and private, with the Conifer public schools receiving great ratings. Wildlife also thrives here, and besides the herds of deer and elk that roam around, there are also buffalo, turkeys, badgers, hawks, bears, mountain lions and the occasional bald eagle and moose. They all deserve respect and space, and residents are advised to keep their distance to avoid incidents. 

All in all, Conifer, Colorado is an incredible place to live if you love the great outdoors and a friendly community. If you’re considering a move here, don’t hesitate, it’s certainly worth it!

The Pike National Forest runs through the town of Conifer, Colorado. The area was first occupied by Arapaho, Ute and Cheyenne tribes who used it as a hunting ground. The community hosts Winterfest in February, a winter-themed beer-crawl in late September, and a zipline tour in the state’s longest and most popular tourist attraction. The town is home to wildflower-dotted meadows in the summer and aspen groves in the autumn.
