Snowboard (or Ski) Your Way into the Heart of Colorado

179626_10100635556162244_2439413_nReady for some winter wanderlust adventure?  It is time to grab your snowboard/skis and head into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

There are so many places to hit the slopes it can be a bit overwhelming–like a kid in a candy store!  So, let’s narrow things down to the slopes near the I-70 corridor.  These resorts are ideal for those doing some snow tourism this winter due to their proximity to the Denver International Airport.  Flying into a major airport means cheaper plane tickets and more “fun funds”, and you can arrive at your resort of choice after a not-too-long scenic drive.  However, not all ski resorts in this area are created equal.

So which ski resorts make the cut?  

  • Arapahoe Basin Ski Area
  • Beaver Creek Ski Area
  • Breckenridge Ski Resort
  • Copper Mountain
  • Crested Butte Mountain Resort
  • Keystone Resort
  • Loveland Ski Resort
  • Steamboat Springs Ski Resort
  • Vail Ski Resort
  • Winter Park Resort

Steamboat Springs and Crested Butte are a little further off I-70 than the rest, but they had to make this list!  If you visit them, you will understand why–they are amazing!  Still having trouble deciding between these ten amazing resorts?  I’ve designed a wonderful infographic to help you narrow down which mountain is right for you.

If you have any questions about the resorts in this post, please don’t hesitate to ask them.  After living in or near Colorado for a good portion of my wandering life, I’ve had the opportunity to extensively explore most of I-70 corridor ski resorts.

Until next Friday, Happy Wanderlust!
