To the lucky visitor, this place is paradise. We have great schools, low crime, fantastic healthcare. The outdoor recreational opportunities are second to none. We enjoy hundreds of miles of hiking trails, singletrack mountain biking, quiet roads for cycling, a 40 mile bike path that stretches the entire length of the valley, Gold Medal trout fishing, five world famous ski mountains, multiple cross country centers, rec centers–the activities are endless. As well, our towns are vibrant and full of events year round. Festivals, arts and culture, farmers markets, restaurants, cafes and breweries, hot springs, world-class cultural offerings, and of course, shopping. It truly is an extraordinary place to call home.
Whats the catch?
Because our mountain valley is so desirable, it is an expensive place to live. The good news is, the income potential is also high. While housing can be challenging to find, Dr. Scott and his wife have lived here for decades and are very well connected. We will do everything we can to help you find housing.
For the right candidate, the potential for long term financial and career success at Sopris Chiropractic is high. Dr. Scott has been at this for close to 30 years and is looking forward to ultimately transitioning the practice to the right person over time.
We look forward to meeting you!
