Top 5 Ski Resorts in Colorado
It’s no secret that Colorado is home to some stunning mountains and breathtaking views across Denver, Aspen, Vail and other areas. Colorado has been a prime destination for skiers and snowboarders for decades; but, where are the best places to ski?
With the help of skiing and mountain experts at SnowPak, who put together their own list of the 10 best ski resorts in Colorado, we thought we’d share a few of our favorites. Here’s our list of the top 5 ski resorts in Colorado:
Keystone made it in our top 5 ski resorts due to its family-friendly ski experience. Keystone offers trails for the whole family – whether you’re an intermediate skier or just getting started. Known for having Colorado’s longest ski day, Keystone features the most number of trails lit up for night skiing!
How could we not feature Aspen in our list? Aspen Highlands is one of the four large ski areas throughout Aspen. Aspen is home to some of the most impressive and popular trails in the world, as well as the home of the Winter X Games every year! It’s an exciting resort that you have to experience at least once.
Arapahoe Basin came in at #3 as a challenge to all of the skiing experts out there. If you’re a beginner, you’re better off at a different resort; however, if you’re an expert, we challenge you to try the extreme trails at A-Basin. Before you go, remember that A-Basin is strictly for advanced skiers and snowboarders, and has very limited amenities. Expect a ski lift and extreme trails, but don’t expect a large ski town with wild nightlife. Save that for Vail.
Vail, Colorado’s luxury ski resort, was placed at #2 because it remains a top vacation spot for both skiers and non-skiers. Vail is the largest ski area in Colorado with over 5,289 acres of terrain and includes a beautiful ski village. Vail offers exciting nightlife with shops, bars, restaurants and more all throughout the resort.
We agreed to keep Telluride as the top ski resort in Colorado due to its combination of amazing trails, breathtaking views, family fun, and nightlife. Telluride truly is the top spot for everyone – advanced skiers, beginners, friends, and the whole family. This resort offers all types of trails from kid’s nursery slopes to intense, extreme runs. Telluride is one of the few resorts out there that allows beginners to experience high alpine territory and mountain vistas, which should make the family even more excited about their next ski trip!
Whether you want to plan a family or business ski trip, remember that GroundLink is always here to handle all of your ground transportation needs. GroundLink offers transportation and airport pickup services throughout Colorado, so we’d be happy to drive you to your next ski trip!
