In the winter, being tucked against the Continental Divide ensures dependable snow. Skiers are happy between two downhill resorts, with learn-to-ski-and-ride parks for those learning and Mary Jane sized moguls meant for the die hards, and four cross-country resorts with plentiful groomed tracks. Families love slipping, sliding and gliding on the four tubing hills and numerous skating rinks, which vouches for our family-friendly activities.
