August 14, 2014

As much as we love the Colorado Rockies in the summer, we love them even more in the winter! Whether you want to head up the famous resort of Aspen, the quintessential town of Breckenridge, the newly renovated Copper Mountain, or the unique destination of Crested Butte, we promise that you will receive the best that the Colorado Rockies have to offer. Between these four resorts there are countless slopes, chutes, bowls, and terrain parks just waiting for you to shred on. Enjoy incredible cuisine at over 9000 feet, shop for souvenirs on the most charming main streets, and most importantly, ski or snowboard your hearts out with some of the best skiing in the Western United States.

    Had not heard about the Copper Renovations, but it seems it was a long time coming. Their lift ticket prices have always been priced right to pull traffic from the big boys they are sandwiched between: http://www.coloradoskiauthority.com/copper-mountain/lift-tickets/

    But their lodging has always been just a step behind. Not bad, but far behind its neighbors.
