The new snow has hit early and hit hard in Colorado. Resorts are quickly wrapping up summer improvements and lining up deals for the early season conditions.

Steamboat’s big addition is the new Four Points Lodge that started being built when the mountain closed in the spring. Winter Park is going for an entirely new brand with the Season of the Seven. The resort is highlighting the seven different areas available for skiing and riding. Copper Mountain is open and hosting top ski teams from around the country and the world for solid early season training. One big change at Copper is at Woodward, in the Barn. This is a place kids and adults love to play.
