Colorado’s Rocky Mountains are dusted in snow, and subfreezing temperatures are here to stay. This means one thing for the state’s winter sports enthusiasts – ski and snowboard season is almost here!

On Oct. 29, Arapahoe Basin was the first to open. Copper, Keystone, and Loveland are currently making snow. Other resorts are patiently waiting on Mother Nature. But all across the state, people are preparing for another season of fun on the slopes.

If you’re looking for unique experiences this winter, Echo Mountain, Keystone, Granby Ranch, Hesperus, Steamboat Springs and the town of Steamboat’s Howleson Hill offer night skiing. Or, if a more extreme adventure is calling your name, Silverton is known for heli skiing.
