Unique & Thrilling Colorado Ski Resorts
Colorado is known for its world-class skiing. The Rocky Mountains are a winter playground, and the sheer volume of resorts makes Colorado an extremely popular ski destination. But if you’re looking for something a little different, something a little extra, here are five Colorado ski resorts that offer the most stunning scenery, thrilling terrain and unique skiing experiences.
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Steamboat is located in northwest Colorado, three hours from Denver. The resort’s 17 lifts, 170 trails and 2,965 acres encompass a completely independent mountain range with six peaks. The resort is best known for its gladed areas of Pioneer Ridge, Sunshine and Storm Peak. The legendary Champagne Powder® snow in the trees attracts the most avid of powder hounds.
Telluride Ski Resort
Mountain Village, Colorado
Telluride is known for its variety of terrain and spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding San Juan Mountains. Sixty percent of the resort’s terrain is dedicated to beginners and intermediates, however you’ll also find some of the steepest, most challenging terrain in the world here. The upper mountain areas of Telluride are reserved for experts only with cliffs, very steep slopes, rocks, challenging hikes, exposed traverses and other hazards for those looking for an extreme adrenaline fix.
Crested Butte Ski Resort

It’s known for some of the best lift-served extreme terrain in the nation with 61 percent of its 121 runs considered advanced or expert level. It’s also home to private, luxury cat-skiing with some of the greatest backcountry terrain that averages 600 inches of snow each year.
