Highly regarded as the crown jewel of ski resorts in Colorado, Vail Ski Resort offers 5,289 skiable acres featuring a variety of terrain, 31 lifts, and three terrain parks. The resort also features a European-inspired style in addition to dozens of boutiques, restaurants, and bars to explore off the slopes.
A close rival to Vail in terms of size is Aspen Snowmass. The area itself consists of four different mountains that combine for a total of 5,517 acres: Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. The area also includes some pedestrian-only streets for upscale dining and shopping along with a charming downtown area with lodging and nightlife options to complete your stay.
Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, Telluride Ski Resort features a large mix of ski trails so everyone in your group will be comfortable on the slopes. With easy access into town, guests of the resort can enjoy the quaint boutiques and cafes that line Main Street after a long day of skiing.
Breckenridge Ski Resort has long been a winter sports mecca for skiers and snowboarders across the globe. We can thank its initial settlement to hopeful miners, but the historic town now boasts incredible snow along with a variety of shopping, dining, and lodging options to suit the budget of any traveler.
Winter Park may not feature the same glamour as Aspen, but it does boast the title of the longest-running ski resort in Colorado. The area features a variety of terrain to accommodate all levels of skill. The resort’s close proximity to Denver also allows for easy access to Denver International Airport and all that the downtown area has to offer.
