There are so many awesome resorts in the state that it is often challenging to pick a place to ski. Snow Magazine's list of Colorado's top eight ski towns is a good place to look if you need help planning your trip!
Snow Magazine is an annual publication that shares articles, lists, and stories related to skiing and snowboarding. It is a great resource for skiers who want to keep up with the sport!
At the beginning of February, Snow Magazine released a list of their eight favorite ski towns in Colorado. Of the state's 28 phenomenal ski areas, these are the best of the best! The list is as follows:
- Copper Mountain
- Crested Butte
- Winter Park
The magazine's description of Breckenridge is charming! It truly captures the spirit of this snowy gold-rush-town-turned-ski-paradise. They wrote:
"This cool historic town features a preserved multi-coloured Main Street buildings, big peaks, moguls, trees and family friendly. Breckenridge ski resort, affectionately known as 'Breck', teams big mountain views with vintage cool mountain town charm. What started as a base camp for miners during the Gold Rush in the 1800s, is now a vibrant mountain town; its historic Main Street runs directly through the centre of the town of Breck, with the ski area’s Five Peaks serving as its backdrop.
With an abundance of slopeside accommodations, ski-to-town trails and the BreckConnect Gondola, the connection between mountain and town is seamless. It’s like the entire town of Breck is practically ski-in, ski-out. Indeed, you can ski from the top of North America’s highest chairlift directly into town for après!"
Breckenridge's reputation as one of Colorado's best ski resorts is well-documented. Time and time again, it has received national attention for being amazing! It is also one of the most popular ski resorts in the country- as you might expect. Beyond winter sports, it is also well-loved for its shops, restaurants, and museums. Come see it for yourself!
