U.S. retirement patterns shifting

Boomers are warming up to colder locales

When I was writing my column on the growing popularity of mountain locations for second homes, in the course of my research I called Teri Lester, a Realtor at Gateway Land and Development in Vail, to find out what was going on in that famed Colorado ski area, but she didn’t get back to me until after the column was written.

Nevertheless, Teri’s an awfully nice person and we chatted for a long time about what was going on in Vail; one of the things on her mind was the amount of retirees that were moving to her area.
