Ranching is still important to the area, but outdoor recreation is also a factor. Boulder is right along the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail.

The Boulder School was consolidated with the Pinedale schools in the mid-1960s and Boulder school children are bussed up to Pinedale every day. The old Boulder School became the Boulder Community Center in the mid-1970s. The Cowbells Harvest Ball and the Boulder Volunteer Fire DepartmentHouse are held here each year. The helpful Boulder Post Office is the friendliest post office you've ever experienced just a 1/2 block off US 191 on Wyoming Hwy 353.
