Colorado is a beautiful state all year round. You can white water raft, horseback ride, hike, fish, or just drive around to see the scenery. The Rocky Mountains cut through the state, giving visitors ginormous summits to climb. So far we’ve only gotten to enjoy the state in the winter, but plan to go back some time in the summer.
Denver International Airport is a huge airport in Colorado, and the most ideal spot to fly into to reach the sky resorts in the Rockies. Colorado is known for some of the absolute best skiing/snowboarding in all the US. The terrain and snow is ideal. There are many ski resorts in that area! Some are pretty famous! I’m sure you’ve heard of some of them: Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, Loveland, Copper Mountain, Vail, Telluride, Steamboat, Aspen/Snowmass, Arapahoe Basin, Powderhorn, Monarch Mountain, Granby Ranch, Beaver Creek, etc. There are obviously a lot of places to choose from! Each has their pros in cons, so do your research. Maybe start here.
Matt went out twice last year to snowboard Colorado, and this year Matt and I both went out there twice to ski and snowboard. We had a blast and would like to share our recommendations to ski inexpensively. Winter Park Resort, Aspen, Breckenridge, and Keystone are all around $180 for a lift ticket for one day! There’s no need to pay that much!
