Finding the Best Lodging When Hitting the Slopes

Sep 16, 2008
There is something about the wind in your face and the snow falling all around you that is addictive and exhilarating. Skiing in Colorado is like reaching the point of perfection and staying there for the duration. When choosing to hit the slopes of Colorado, ski lodging will be your first stop. The Colorado ski lodging options are cast, but the resort or lodge is the most all-inclusive.

Choosing a resort for your skiing vacation is all about the amenities. Some skiers welcome the fact that they can leave their equipment at home and choose to use the resort or lodge equipment. In most Colorado ski lodging resorts, the equipment is offered at an additional charge, so make sure to ask about the cost before booking the vacation.

Resort skiing lodges also offer onsite training, lessons, doctors, and small slopes for the beginners in your group. When traveling with people who know little about skiing and people who are good skiers, it is important to offer small slopes and lessons during the vacation.

Lodge vacations will also offer morning coffee, in house restaurants and concierge services for those who want to experience the great outdoors with the comforts of home. Shuttle service into and out of the local towns are available for visitors in order to get in a day of shopping and enjoyment. Other resort style amenities can include on site massage, spa treatments, barbers, and grocery services.

Why A Resort or Lodge?

A resort or lodge is perfect for vacationers who want to travel with less gear or who are traveling in larger groups. With special group rates, corporate gatherings, family reunions, weddings, receptions and honeymoons are all handled with the ideal amount of space when booked at a resort or lodge.

Need Something More Extreme

Many resorts and lodges will offer helicopter services taking skiers into the more remote areas of the slopes. These ski trips are often at your own risk as the skiing conditions will be extreme and the skier will need to be of advanced talent in order to handle the slope grading and speed.

Your Colorado ski lodging choice will be dependent upon the style of vacation you desire. For those who want the best of the slopes, fantastic amenities and a great atmosphere, the resort or lodge style vacation may be for you. There are hundreds of ski lodges and resorts in Colorado to check out one today.
