Springtime is here and summer in Colorado Ski Country is just around the corner. With the meltoff comes rushing rivers, green grass, and springtime flowers peeking up through the melting flakes of snow. The days are getting longer and the sun is shining even more. Grab your boards and sunscreen and enjoy the end of the season on the slopes.
But get ready for summer in the Rocky Mountains. Resorts like Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, and Winter Park want you to visit and they’ll offer deals and lodging packages and fun family activities that will be the perfect summer vacation. Make it a road trip through the state. Drive over Trail Ridge Road this summer. Tackle Independence pass on your bike. Follow the USA Pro Cycling Classic in August.
Many Colorado resorts offer base area activities such as Bungee Jumping, alpine slides, miniature golf, and air jumps. Raft the rivers. Hike the mountains. Enjoy the mountain scenery.
Loryn Kasten in Steamboat describes it perfectly: “It's not what you can do in the summer, it's what you can fit in. Between hot-air ballooning, mountain biking, road biking, fly fishing, playing on the river, hiking, the rodeo, plus all the summer events, there's just not enough time in one trip to see all of Steamboat. And top that off with cool temperatures that are just right – Steamboat might be Goldilocks' answer to the perfect summer.”
A Colorado summer at your favorite winter resort is something not to be missed. Make your plans today whether it’s for a day trip, a long weekend, your summer vacation, or a month-long getaway. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll move to your favorite mountain town for good! See you on the slopes.
