Ski Resorts in Colorado
Colorado?s nickname says it all: The Rocky Mountain State is blessed with more than 54 peaks over 14,000 feet, no fewer than 18 resorts, an average of 300 sunny days, and more than 300 inches of snow each year. This litany of stats translates into one blessed fact: Colorado is Rocky Mountain skiing at its finest. Want a high-profile alpine micro-metropolis with swank apr?s ski attractions and haute cuisine along with serious piste and gentle intro runs? Prefer brewpubs and mom-and-pop resorts? Long for open bowls resting above the tree line under a bluebird ski? No problem. From the highest peak of Arapaho Basin and the groomers of Winter Park to Crested Butte's snowboard scene and Aspen's slopes and shops, the only thing Colorado can't offer is a pair of fresh legs. But if you got 'em you'll use 'em.
