Summit County, Colorado – How to Choose the Right Resort for Your Needs

Summit County, Colorado is home to four amazing ski resorts that all have slightly different offerings to you and your group.  The biggest ski resort of the four is Breckenridge, aimed towards any type of skiing you can think of, and can provide an awesome experience for any group type from families that have never skied before, to a college spring break crew looking to do park laps, all the way to powder hungry riders that don’t mind hiking for their turns.  Similar to Breckenridge, Keystone is also a fairly diverse mountain good for friends and family alike, and is known locally for its endless tree skiing.  Arapahoe Basin is a ski area for those willing to head up the mountain and try some more challenging terrain.  Last but not least, an all around awesome mountain that has a little bit for everyone is Copper Mountain, which is not associated with Vail Resorts.


Ski In/Ski out: There’s no turning back

While I was growing up in the northwest, my family and I would take ski trips.  We’d pile into the car on a Friday, drive the 2 hours up the pass and arrive in Snoqualmie where the four of us would move into a little cabin on the mountainside for the weekend.  It was a simple cabin.  Fold out bed downstairs in the living room with a wood burning stove and a loft, which you accessed by ladder, where my brother and I had our own twin size beds.   The next morning, we’d all put on our ski gear and walk the quarter mile to the resort.  Your goal was to stay on two feet and not slip on the sheet of ice between our cabin and the resort.  If you succeeded at this, you knew it was going to be a good day.
