Local Resources & News

Our Community

We want people who live here or away from here to find out about why we love this area aside from its stunning beauty, location and mostly balmy average temperatures year round. Where else can you ski, go fishing, cycle or walk (sometimes in our shorts!), and check out the area’s many eateries, coffee shops, wineries, & local shops in between all within this area.

It rains a lot in the winter. We still BBQ on our covered decks and think it’s the perfect time to go hear one of our local musicians, visit the many indoor fitness facilities, or hop on a flight to one of the hot destinations our local airport offers. Our team’s 50+ cumulative years living locally gives us a lot to love and a lot to share...

Resources & Great Information Sites

There's so much going on that to even mention a fraction of them would take up a LOT of space. We've chosen online information sites we think you'll enjoy and find interesting. At the same time, you'll start to get a sense of who we are and how we live here.

Things & Events that put us on the Map

Lifestyle is one of the major reasons people choose to live here. This list is proof, we think!
