As a skier myself, I love heading out to the slopes after it snows. Hitting those fresh, powdery slopes is something I look forward to every year. Hi, this is Alex Cronstein and I’d like to share with you a few ski resorts that you might want to check if you’re heading to Colorado with the family (kids in tow).
Crested Butte is a town in Gunnison County, Colorado. Considered as the “last great Colorado ski town,” Crested Butte is a popular destination for skiers and mountain bikers, and is home to Mount Crested Butte. The mountain is covered in snow during the winter, and it blooms into a beautiful and lush alpine and aspen forests during the warmer months.
When you take the kids here in winter, you can sign them up for Kids’ Night Out, an activity-filled night offered by Crested Butte Mountain Resort that allows kids to enjoy fun activities while their parents are given the night free to explore on their own. Kids will get to visit Adventure Park and do fun stuff like the ZeroGravity BagJump, wall climbing, and other games and activities. They will also be treated to a special dinner.
Beaver Creek is located in Eagle County, south of Avon. The Beaver Creek Resort is one of the most popular ski resorts in Colorado. December is arguably the most popular month for visitors to come here because this is when the annual Birds of Prey Men’s World Cup takes place—a major ski event in the country.
Kids will surely love the cookie treats they give the guests every 3 pm, on the dot. It’s aptly called the 3pm Cookie Program. There’s also the On-Hill Story Time, Thursday Night Lights, which is a glow stick procession capped by amazing displays of fireworks, and of course, the Marmot Maze. If you’re bringing along teenagers, sign them up for the beaver Creek Loves Teens Too program. Activities include night tubing and a pizza party.
This is Alexander Cronstein once again. Thanks for dropping by!
