List of every ski area in Colorado

posted in: Winter | 0

This is a list of every alpine ski area I know of in Colorado. I’m sure I’m missing quite a few of the backcountry sites so let me know and I’ll add them. Click on them to go to the area’s web site.

The dollar signs: indicate approximate relative cost of the commercial areas. Five $$$$$ is most expensive and one $ is least expensive. Of course the resorts with more $ sometimes have more to offer.

The numbers: represent the approximate driving time in hours from Denver, typically rounded UP to the nearest hour.
