Winter time in Colorado is an exciting time, indeed. Whether you’re a fiend for the slopes or just like to see what the Rockies have to offer in all their snowy, wintery glory, there are countless adventures to be had all through the winter in this great state. But figuring out where you want to stay during your Colorado winter adventures can be a…. slightly less thrilling prospect. As your Denver auto body shop, we know there are so many choices, and given the unpredictability of the mountain weather this time of year, it’s important to have a spot you know can be flexible should you get snowed in an extra day (or two). Depending on what kind of experience you’re going for, there are a number of Colorado winter lodging options you can look at to create the perfect backdrop and home base for whatever you get up to in the city or the mountains this winter.

City Living

Hanging in the city has its perks. If you’re Denver-bound for a vacation or staycation, there’s always the chance you’ll get 6 inches of snow one day only to have it melt away with 60-degree temperatures three days later. If not, you’ll at least have plenty to explore in the way of good food, gorgeous museums, and countless breweries. There are a number of excellent hotels in Denver, but if you’re looking for a unique experience that exemplifies the artsy side of Denver, we’d recommend the Art, a Hotel downtown, or Moxy in Cherry Creek.

Resort Life

If spending all your free time on the slopes is your idea of the perfect Colorado winter lodging, then you’re probably familiar with ski resorts. If you can swing it, the resorts directly tied to the mountain you’ll be shredding up all day is a perfect choice and lets you really soak up the whole ski bum experience.

Get Eclectic

If you’re looking for something a little more local when you head to the mountains, try an Airbnb. It’s a great way to get a different perspective on wherever you’re visiting, and often hosts have recommendations for places to eat, visit, and check out while you’re there. You never know, you might just find a new favorite, or discover a fun new winter activity you hadn’t thought of trying before! There are also a number of boutique inns that offer different experiences than your average hotel or lodge, like the Distillery Inn in Carbondale, a 5-bedroom inn attached to Marble Distilling, for those winter tasting sessions that keep you a little too warm.

Mountain Lodge

Maybe living the ski bum life isn’t quite in your budget, but you still want that classic mountain experience, there are a number of mountain lodges that aren’t directly affiliated with the slopes they’re closest to that might offer a more affordable price and a slightly more rustic experience. Shop around and see the cool features lodges offer for yourself!

The Classics

When all else fails, there are always the family-friendly classics like Holiday Inn Express, or the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. These won’t be so robust on the features or unique decor, but they are a tried and true option for the weary traveler who got caught in the snow or just needs a place to rest their head for the night before heading onto the next adventure.

No matter what you’re looking for, there is lodging to suit your needs in Colorado. Where are your favorite places to stay when you get to adventuring in the winter?
