If visiting Boulder, Eldora Mountain Resort is only minutes away with easy parking, or take the bus from town.

A large concentration of resorts are in the Central Rockies including Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper, Arapahoe Basin, Steamboat Springs, Vail, and Beaver Creek. These are some of the largest resorts in the country with thousands of acres of skiable terrain, lodging, restaurants, entertainment, and amenities. The Central Rockies resorts are full service and also easy to access as most are near the I-70 highway, with Steamboat a few hours north. Heading further south west, Aspen has four mountains to choose from: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. Known for glitz and glamour, the mountains of Aspen also offer diverse terrain, excellent service, and gorgeous mountain scenery. And still further south west is Telluride, Wolf Creek, Crested Butte, and Durango Mountain Resort. Also full service resorts, these mountains tend to be less crowded due to their more remote locations.
