Colorado is a good place to take your winter vacation. The state has it all, whether you are looking for a big or small resort. You'll find great skiing and riding in the midst of the Rocky Mountains. This is the year that the Colorado resorts are trying their hardest to get you to visit.

Melanie Mills, president and CEO of Colorado Ski Country USA, a trade association of many of the state's ski resorts, says, "We anticipate that people are going to want to ski this year. They're going to want to get outside and on the snow, to enjoy spending time with friends and family, and our resorts are going to find ways to give them what they want. I'm sure we'll see creative offerings and packages from Colorado resorts."

A big part of those packages are season passes. Colorado resorts are offering their best prices on season passes in early September. Those prices are not guaranteed for long. For example, the  price for the Epic Pass for [R482R, Vail], [R36R, Beaver Creek], [R197R, Keystone], [R77R, Breckenridge] and the Rocky Mountain Super Pass for [R507R, Winter Park], [R113R, Copper] and six days at [R425R, Steamboat], could go up any day. Deadlines are looming so don't delay.

Colorado resorts are also improving base areas and lodging, as well as amenities for guests. You'll find it at places like Snowmass with the Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center. Copper Mountain has Woodward at Copper, the first indoor/outdoor ski and snowboard camp. It truly is out of this world. New terrain parks, rental gear and improved family areas are more of the improvements made at Colorado resorts. Get all of the details all winter long right here, at
