Copper Mountain

There’s a reason this one’s a classic, Copper Mountain employs tons of snowmaking, allowing you to stay out there longer, regardless of weather conditions. This is an awesome spot for intermediate skiiers and boarders, with a pretty even mix of beginner and intermediate runs – with over half of the runs being labeled as advanced/expert, beginners may want to take it slow or start elsewhere.


Steamboat is a great destination year round, but especially during ski season. The quaint mountain town offers plenty of activities (and the hot springs just outside of town!) for your post-slope entertainment, but it’s hard to beat the views and atmosphere in Steamboat.


When you think “skiing” you think Vail (okay, and Aspen and Breckenridge, but still…), and for good reason. It’s a gorgeous spot that’s extremely popular from the day the slopes open to the day they close up shop until next year. Vail and Aspen are hot spots for not only locals but celebrities who vacation in the mountains, too. If you’re cool with crowds, you could be skiing with the stars. And even if you don’t manage to spot Kate Hudson or Chelsea Handler on the slopes, there’s still plenty of reasons to love Vail, from the expertly groomed runs to the true mountain resort atmosphere.


Another iconic ski hot spot, and for good reason. Aspen Highlands is reputed as Colorado’s best steep-mountain, in bounds skiing. The scenic summit offers gorgeous views while the runs themselves offer something for the whole family, though with over 50% expert and advanced trails, it certainly caters to the thrill seeker in us all.


It’s a jaunt to get there from the Denver Metro area, but it’s oh-so-worth-it. The tiny town is adorable and the main street running through it looks up into the mountains in an awe-inspiring kind of way – and that’s just on the ground. The views of the San Juans from the top are second to none. Telluride is another spot where you can find movie stars hanging out in their massive mountainside mansions and hitting the slopes for their big vacations. It’s hard not to love Telluride year-round, but it shines extra bright in the winter for all you ski and snowboarders out there.

Heading into the mountains and getting your skis dug into a fresh powder day is like nothing else, but remember to drive safely on your way up and down the mountain! If you find yourself in an accident and need auto body repair work done, we’ve got your back, just give us a call.
