Colorado Ski Resorts & Winter Vacations

Howelsen Hill Ski AreaArapahoe Basin

Best known for having one of the longest ski seasons in North America (often from mid-October to early June), A-Basin also boasts North America's highest elevation terrain park and its own "beach, "? the infamous early-riser parking lot, which serves as home base for concerts, parties and tailgating.

Aspen Highlands

When new snow at Aspen Highlands reaches mammoth proportions, you're in for a epic day of Colorado's signature light-and-dry powder. Insiders at the ski area recommend studying the trail map to find hidden gems that drop into gladed, untouched expert areas.

Aspen Mountain

While Aspen is known throughout the world as a posh winter playground, more skiers are discovering the mountain's challenging double blacks and chutes. In town, stop into the numerous galleries and the Aspen Art Museum or see a show at the Wheeler Opera House or the Harris Concert Hall.

Beaver Creek Resort

You can tell from Beaver Creek's marketing slogan, "Not Exactly Roughing It, "? that it will charm those looking for fantastic extras. Heated moving walkways, fresh-baked cookies in the base area and a 20-hours-a-day grooming habit result in acres of corduroy just waiting for skiers and riders to swish their way through.

Breckenridge Ski Resort

Breckenridge is one of North America's most popular resorts, in part because of its variety of terrain: long groomed trails, monster mogul runs, steep chutes, glades and lots of family-friendly beginner areas. The resort was also one of the first to allow snowboarding, and its Freeway Terrain Park is arguably one of the best in North America.

For an unprecedented 11 straight years, it has been the home of ESPN's Winter X Games, where Olympians Shaun White, Hannah Teter, local Gretchen Bleiler and many more have captured snowboarding medals.

Copper Mountain

People who ski and ride Copper love to tout its perfect layout. They have Mother Nature to thank for arranging its slopes so adeptly: Beginner, intermediate and expert runs are each clustered with like-leveled terrain, ensuring beginners won't make a surprise trip to the top of a steep, mogul-laden run.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort

Crested Butte has it all: wide-open green and blue trails, expert bowls and plenty of unexplored lines and uncrowded slopes. One thing to really take advantage of, however, is the CB Backcountry Guide. Professional instructors teach would-be backcountry enthusiasts how to navigate safely and explore untouched powder.

Durango Mountain Resort

Durango Mountain's unintimidating slopes, Old West fun park and Pitchfork Terrain Garden beginners' park are a few things that make it a hit with families. Within its boundaries are 88 trails, four terrain parks, a racing course and 35, 000 acres of snowcat skiing and snowboarding.

Eldora Mountain Resort

Eldora's proximity to Boulder and Denver is one of the reasons it's known as a "locals' mountain."? The fact that they have terrain to keep the whole family busy all day doesn't hurt either. The Eldora Nordic Center features a network of nearly 25 miles of peaceful cross-country ski and snowshoe trails just steps from the downhill ski area.
