SKIING & SNOWBOARDING IN COLORADO THIS SEASON

A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS & CHANGES AT ALL THE DENVER-AREA SKI RESORTS


2020 has been a strange year, and if you’re like us the outdoors is a refuge from the craziness. It looks like all of Colorado’s ski areas are or will soon open, but we can expect things to be a little bit different than in normal years. Below we have compiled a comprehensive guide about what to expect at each of the Denver-area resorts, so you can concentrate on having fun. As always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions – we’re happy to help in any way we can and always relish any opportunity to talk about skiing and snowboarding!
