There is nothing quite as charming as a Colorado mountain town.  Here the heritage of the Wild West combines with impressive Rocky Mountain scenery, to engulf you in breathtaking and stimulating surroundings.  And then there’s all that outdoor adventure to be had!  You truly can’t go wrong with family travel in the Colorado Rockies.

Whether your family’s preference is a snowy destination, seeking out the world famous Colorado Rockies ski areas during the winter months, or enjoying a warm and sunny alpine hike… this area has so much to offer, year round.

Let’s start with the legendary skiing and snowboarding opportunities.  There’s a reason people travel from all over the globe in order to ski at places such as Vail, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge in the Colorado Rockies.   These “ski towns” have a culture all their own, offering excellent restaurants and shopping to contribute once you’re done for the day on those slopes. Some luxury hotels such as RockResorts are even slope-side, allowing you easy and carefree access to literally walk out of your room… right to the slopes!

Just starting out?  All levels of skiers are welcome, with lessons offered for young and old alike.  Don’t let the daunting Colorado Rockies altitude intimidate you.  All that boils down to is longer, gorgeous runs with minimized chairlift time, as you will still find a range of slope difficulty levels to chose from.

Skiing just not  your thing?  There are many other fun activities to enjoy in that Rocky Mountain snow!   Kids are sure to love trying their hand at ice skating, snow tubing, ski biking, dog sledding, or sleigh rides.   All are offered during wintertime in Colorado.

Details on all these activities and more are available from the concierge at RockResorts.  In addition to their excellent mountain base locations, and unbeatable access to the slopes, RockResorts offers specialized benefits when traveling with kids.   Some of the kid and family friendly unique activities at the resorts include:

  • specially catered popcorn and movie nights,
  • mini spa robes and treatments for kids, and
  • a catered hot chocolate and marshmallow cart in the winter

Prefer to experience Colorado’s soul-warming, high-altitude sunshine during the warmer months?  From whitewater rafting, to mountain biking, to a variety of hiking trails, this is an outdoor lovers paradise.
