On The Road Again..
I am born and raised in Colorado, a Colorado native if you will. The snow, the subzero temperatures, I love it all! I am now currently living in Nevada, I was brought out here when I was turning 16 by my mother and step-father. It has honestly been pretty miserable out here, its lonely, there isn’t much to do.
Back home I was the star skier, I had mastered a tipple black diamond run by the time I was 11. Some of my favorite resorts in Colorado are ones that you wouldn’t necessarily find unless you searched for it.
Arapaho Basin, or better known to the locals as ‘A Basin’, is a very small and quaint ski resort located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains on the Continental Divide in a town called Keystone. For such a small park, A Basin has 8 chair lifts and 2 terrain parks which is incredible. A Basin is also a great place to go if you want to learn how to ski or snowboard, they have groomed runs and great instructors.
Powderhorn. This beautiful resort is structured along Colorado’s Grand Mesa just about 45 minutes from Grand Junction, Colorado. Powderhorn has all different types of ski terrain available and with the on-site lodging, dining, and shopping it is your ideal getaway to the Rocky Mountains and is a perfect vacationing spot for couples and families.
Now, getting into the more lavish of resorts that Colorado has to offer, lets talk about Vail, Colorado. Set at the base of Vail Mountain Resort is a little town known as Vail. Designed like a Swiss Village full of bars, fine shopping and dining experiences, and exceptional family activities, the Vail Village is a top stop in my book of Colorado travels. It is so posh, you can take stroll down the heated sidewalks, or take a shuttle from your cabin to the Ski Resort. No matter what the season is, or what the weather is like, there is always a vast opportunity to do so many activities.The Village at Vail can be a one stop vacation spot for the whole family. The breathtaking views will have you at the first sight.
One last resort that I enjoy visiting when I go back home is Copper Mountain. Located in Summit County about 40 miles out of Denver, Copper Mountain has 23 chair lifts, 142 runs, and 6 terrain parks. Copper is a very large Ski resort made up of a great mixture of beginner, intermediate, and expert runs, ideal for that beginner skier. Copper is a top favorite pick of family destinations. There is a number of options for activates here at Copper, besides skiing and snowboarding, there are activities you can partake in such as tubing, zip-line, and ice skating plus so so much more!
There is always so much to do back home in Colorado. You can walk out of your back door and have an endless supply of adventure awaiting you. From backpacking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, there is so much. Colorado is a top vacation spot for adventurous people with the endless outdoor fun you can have.
