The Best Ski Resorts in Colorado


If there’s one state that’s synonymous with skiing, it’s Colorado. Home to over 30 ski resorts big and small, the Centennial State has options for everyone, from the destination mega resorts with massive hotels at their bases to quaint, independent ski areas that still welcome school groups and dole out complementary passes to seniors.

That said, the options are broad, and choosing the right destination is no easy task. It all comes down to the experience you’re seeking and who you’re traveling with. Got groms in tow? Green slopes and ski school programs will be more important than steep couloirs and hike-to adventures. The good news is that Colorado has some of the best resorts in the West when it comes to terrain diversity, learning areas, off-slope amenities, challenging steeps, and more. These are the top 12 ski resorts in the state, and a good place to start when planning your next Colorado ski trip.

I have never had a bad time at Keystone and look forward to returning every year.”
