With such a famous name for a ski resort it's not surprising Vail attracts a lot of attention for ski vacations. Vail is easily one of the most sophisticated ski resorts as well with a huge efficient 31 lift system which can easily whisk the droves off to the slopes quickly and with ease. Masses of snow and great drops make the skiing some of the best as well.
In Vail, the number of quality resort options and the variety available is astounding. The Ski area is actually the largest worldwide with more than 2000 hectares.

One of your top resorts in Vail is the Ritz Carlton. Enjoy a free ski shuttle. This will give you enough time to relax in at the spa tub or have an après-ski drink. This resort, while having high level service, also provides kitchens and the like. Rent and store your ski gear here as well.

Telluride and Mountain Village are known as some of the most beautiful resorts in the United States. Although mostly a secret insider place where you can easily find space for yourself anytime of the year.
Box Canyon really is an amazing location for some great ski resorts set by a quaint ski town. With 810 hectares and a drop of 3,845 feet you wont miss out on outstanding snow experiences as well.
Great value honeymoon or family vacation resort. This boutique resort is adored by the guests who stay there to soak up the cozy atmosphere. Big fireplace hot cider and cookies right in downtown Telluride.
Steamboat is one of our first picks when it comes to family friendly ski resorts in Colorado.
Possibly the best "extreme" ski resorts in the area on a smaller scale than some of the other more well known resorts. This resort also has the advantage of having one of those cute Victorian little ski villages as well.
Ski to the doorstep of this outstanding family
resort hotel. We think this resort is a step up from the Marriott and
Club Med nearby. With all the ski facilities right there,
comfortable (if not outstanding) rooms and great friendly
service make this the standout.
Wolf Creek Ski Area is an amazing ski destination that you are likely to find lots of space in. In total there are 647 hectares of ski and 7 lifts.
Another great Colorado family friendly ski resort is Keystone. While the ski area is more than big enough (massive) one of the Keystone it's success is a an efficient new lift system and a great village.
Flashy and known by the Jetset, Beaver Creek is the resort esteemed by the less budget conscious. Luxury from arrival to departure with excellence in service a top priority.
