The World’s Best Slopes Are In Colorado
Fact. A proven, honest, actual fact. Nowhere on Earth is the skiing like Colorado.
Competitions are set up in the state to prove who the best skiers in the world are. Many of the top skiers either come from Colorado or train here. So we need to know where the best skiing is. Let’s get started.
Keystone Resort – Keystone, Co.
Lots of changes, an updated lift and plenty of things to do, even if you aren’t a skier or snowboarder. Over 3,000 acres of skiing, including night skiing, Keystone offers a wide variety of terrain for every level of skier. And the lift ticket prices aren’t insane, either.
Copper Mountain – Summit County
Copper is arguably one of the best ski areas for the intermediate skier. Almost 2,500 acres of skiing and usually one of the earliest resorts to open, Copper mountain is a lot of fun and it’s not uncommon to spend the entire day on the mountain. A beautiful experience as well.
Breckenridge Mountain – Breckenridge
Home to North America’s highest lift, Breckenridge offers a variety of things to do with five peaks and the Express Super Chair, taking you up 12, 840 feet. What you do once you get up there is sheer exhilaration.
Arapahoe Basin – Dillon
What an incredible time lapse from @a_mcg.jpg! The beauty of the Continental Divide never ceases to amaze us. #abasin70 #repost #colorado ・・・ While I was tracking the panoramas, I left my work horse camera to do it's thing. This time lapse captures about 2 and a half hours. The crews at a basin working hard as the sky passes above. I thought the clouds were going to ruin the night, good thing they didn't last too long. ☞ #canont2i #Rokinon 10mm ☞ ISO 3200 ☞ 30 seconds ⚫☞f2.8 257 images Tripod #promaster 525xc
The favorite of locals, A-Basin has some sick runs. Not necessarily a place for the beginner, Arapahoe Basin is supercharged with excitement. There are plenty of hotels in the area, none on the mountain, though. But affordability is one huge strength at A-Basin. Opening Friday, October 13th.
Aspen-Snowmass – Aspen
Legendary. Aspen mountain, home to World Cup skiing, 5,500 acres of the best snow on earth and the amazing Aspen village experience all combine to make Aspen a go-to place. While the lift tickets are high, so is the mountain and the runs are groomed by the best in the world. You have to experience it once in your life.
More to come as the ski season progresses, but post your favorite ski and snowboard pics and let’s get amped for the season!
