Let’s face it-when it comes to vacation time, you want to get out and go somewhere. However, during the winter, you may feel a bit restricted. Sometimes you don’t have the time, patience, or the money to go out of the country, albeit wanting to very much. But the question is, how do you go on vacation without spending an arm and a leg and having to deal with such bothersome things such as going out of the country?
This is why it’s such a great idea to go to a Colorado ski resort! Ski resorts are peaceful, cozy, and definitely a great place to curl up with the family and watch a movie with a cup of hot cocoa before you run out to ski!
Beaver Creek Resort
This awesome resort has over one hundred and fifty trails for anyone from beginners stuck on the bunny slopes to those willing to ski down Mt. Everest.

There is over 4000 sq ft of property for you and your family to enjoy, not to mention loads of beautiful wildlife.
This is one of four mountains in the Aspen/Snowmass resort and is located three miles away from Aspen. This mountain is groomed on a regular basis as to give you the best and is also the home to the ESPN Winter X Games!

If you and your family are experts of Shaun White proportions, then you may find that this ski resort is more to your liking! This ski resort gets over three hundred inches of snow each year! You will need to have a hiking pass, a probe pole and an avalanche beacon in order to go skiing at this resort. It has rather steep trails but is definitely worth it for those who ache to go skiing on the tougher slopes!
