Colorado Ski Resorts

Whether you're planning a ski vacation or hitting the slopes for the day, Colorado has endless skiing and snowboarding options throughout the Rocky Mountains that call the state home. With heavy snowfall, a variety of skiing above 10,000 feet, tons of sunshine and historic ski towns, it’s no wonder they call Colorado “Ski Country USA.”

There is an assortment of skiing and snowboarding options in Colorado’s Front Range. Resorts like Vail and Breckenridge offer world class skiing and snowboarding with luxurious lodging, dining and nightlife in their base villages, while Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski Area offer hardcore skiing and a down to earth, local’s vibe.

Miles deeper into the Rocky Mountains, in the Elk Range, you’ll find the famous town of Aspen, home to Aspen Mountain (Ajax), Buttermilk Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Snowmass Mountain. Aspen provides a wide variety of ski terrain options and some of the best après-ski on Earth.

Hit the trails in the southern part of the state for some of the most challenging ski terrain in North America, thanks to ski areas such as Telluride, Silverton and Crested Butte.
