Colorado

Ski Colorado this winter! Known for the large amounts of snowfall, Colorado has been a top ski vacation state for decades. Many of the popular ski resorts in Colorado are close to Interstate 70 and a scenic drive from Denver International Airport, making them some of the most convenient and easy-to-get-to ski resorts in the country.

What Makes Colorado Skiing So Unique

With 28 resorts, it's not hard to understand why Colorado is known for its winter sports and vacations. And many of the resorts share their lift tickets and season passes, so you can enjoy different ski and snow sport atmospheres on the same vacation. Lodging at Colorado resorts range from at-resort and slope-side lodging to yurts, cabins, ski chalets, cottages, to standard hotel and motel accommodations, to luxurious accommodations like vacation rental mountain homes and luxury condominiums. Ski-in/ski-out lodgings are common, especially in areas like Vail, Beaver Creek, and Summit County, where an entire village area and network of small villages is designed for skiing and snow sports, offering shuttle services for your convenience.

Major Ski Resorts

The top ski resorts in Colorado include the cluster of four Summit County resorts known as Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin. Each of these resort areas are located in resort towns, with restaurants, lodging, and more things to do all right in a small village area.

Colorado's top quality ski resort network of Aspen Snowmass, Beaver Creek, and Vail (with transportation between them) have shared lift tickets and passes. These resorts are usually a little more expensive, however, you should ski here during your lifetime. They are that epic.

Additional ski resorts in central Colorado include Crested Butte, Loveland, Echo Mountain, Monarch MountainSki Cooper, Granby RanchWinter Park, Sunlight Mountain, and to the north Steamboat Springs. Some of these smaller resorts will be less expensive, but no less unworthy than the rest.

On the Western slope, you'll find Durango Mountain Resort, Wolf Creek, Silverton, Powderhorn, and world-famous Telluride. We love these resorts because they are typically less crowded, less expensive, and you have no idea how beautiful western Colorado is until you see if for yourself.
