Colorado Vacation Spots

Resorts like Copper Mountain separate out their trail system from beginner to expert so there isn’t the problem of beginners running into experts and visa-versa. Vail just has it all from the vast back bowls to groomed trails and terrain for every ability. This is a Colorado ski resort that has a pedestrian friendly village for great dining to unlimited shopping. Does the ski resort have lodging right at the mountain and what are the accommodations like. Accessibility to restaurants and shopping, Breckenridge is a great example since the town is right at the mountain with lodging for all budgets as well as family friendly restaurants. This Colorado ski resort has excellent expert terrain, good bump skiing above tree line skiing/boarding and a wide array of groomed trails for beginners and intermediates as well. Think about winter Park and Mary Jane for outstanding bump skiing Think about the time of year as well. December could be iffy based on snow and not all the trails maybe open plus dealing with the Christmas crowds. January and February typically is good skiing and riding but be aware of busy weekends such as Martin Luther’s birthday and President Day weekend. March and early April is great spring skiing/riding just think about spring break and the crowds.

The major Colorado destinations include Vail, Beaver creek, Steamboat, Winter Park, Aspen, Snowmass, Telluride , Keystone Crested Butte and as mentioned Copper Mountain and Breckenridge. If you are looking for a vacation in Colorado where you don’t have all the crowds and still great snow think about Arapahoe mountain /A-Basin up the road from Keystone skiing/riding above tree line, Monarch mountain near Salida or ski areas such as Purgatory neat Durango, Sunlight mountain by Glenwood springs or Wolf creek which typically gets more fresh powder than anywhere else. Searching for the extreme experience plan your Colorado Vacation at Silverton Mountain.

A Summit County vacation in central Colorado gives you access to 4 major mountains Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone and A-Basin and only 20 minutes to Vail.

Whatever Colorado destination you choose have fun and enjoy your Colorado Adventure.
