When it comes to ski resorts, you just can’t beat the powder in Colorado.
Luckily, though, there are several options that stand out above the rest and provide for your family the greatest of all worlds when it comes to skiing, dining, entertainment, and more.
Vail claims to be America’s favorite resort, and for good reason. It’s the largest ski area in the United States, and provides an unbelievable array of different mountains and challenges for skiers of all backgrounds and of all levels of experience. Plus, with museums, art galleries, ballooning, dog sledding, and more, Vail has turned into quite the family fun center that provides classic and classy entertainment for the whole family.
Further up the mountain and deeper into the Rockies than Vail, Aspen provides a much more relaxed atmosphere and a much classier feel than Vail for families looking to ski. Frequented by celebrity families and locals alike, Aspen moves at a slower pace and really provides small town flare with amazing slopes, great restaurants, and much more laid back entertainment venues that make for the perfect relaxed vacation.
Telluride is known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding, but that’s not all there is to do here. Whether you’re a non-skier or you are taking a day off from the slopes there is plenty to keep you occupied in the San Juans.
From snowshoeing to soaking at the spa to soaring through the sky in a glider, there’s something for everyone.
Telluride is a favorite of ours, we were charmed by the friendly small town hospitality & the stunning view of the town by night has a magical beauty that must surely have inspired many a Christmas card design.
What about you, though? Are there are any that you and your family have enjoyed that you think we should add to the list? We’d love to hear your opinions about what ski resorts best meet your needs!
