With spectacular snowfall amounts during major storms, Colorado offers some of the best ski destinations in the world. Ski resorts in the state can vary greatly, with top-end, world-class resorts with seemingly endless terrain to single-lift, family-run operations with some of the best hike-to possibilities in the country. Whether it’s personal taste, skiing preferences, skill level, budget or just convenience of location, finding the right ski destination to visit in your bus rental can be a daunting task. We’ve narrowed the list down to 5 ski destinations based on overall experience.

The great thing about getting to most of these resorts is their proximity to Denver, making picking up your bus rental from Cornerstone Bus Leasing and Rentals that much easier. A couple may be closer to small commuter airports, but don’t let that sway your opinion on visiting certain places, since picking up your bus rental is possible, no matter where your ski destination is in Colorado.

Our Top 5 Ski Destinations:

1) Vail Mountain Resorts

Known for being one of the largest resorts in the world, Vail has some of the best terrain in Colorado. With its extensive and varied terrain, this mountain can cater to all ski levels. Though it may not be the highest in altitude on this list, Vail still receives approximately 340 inches of snow each season, and let’s not forget the easy drive directly from Denver International Airport.

2) Telluride Ski Resort

One of the most scenic ski destinations in the United States, Telluride, is located in the San Juan Mountains (southwestern Colorado). This mountain possesses some serious vertical terrain, falling from over 13,000 feet to the base at 8,725 feet. Great for all members of the family, Telluride offers a free gondola to get around town, skis or not.

3) Breckenridge Ski Resort

Breck (to the locals) has the complete package, from groomed runs through the trees to extraordinary high alpine bowls that are lift accessible or easy to hike to. This ski destination is great for people looking to push their skill level, but offers plenty of terrain for everyone.

4) Aspen Snowmass

Comprised of four ski areas around the town of Aspen and Snowmass village, Aspen Snowmass actually consists of Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. As a whole, this ski destination covers a massive amount of terrain, rivaling Vail in sheer size.

5) Beaver Creek Resort

Just a short drive down I70 from Vail, this ski destination is known for its high level of customer service, groomers and a friendly atmosphere – not to mention the ‘end-of-day’ fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Sounds crazy, but you haven’t lived until you try these at the end of a long day on the hill. Beaver Creek Resort (owned by Vail Resorts) is arguably the best ski destination for families.
