As your plane touches down in a winter wonderland, make your way to your accommodations. After you get settled in, escape the cold and explore one of the West’s largest art museums, the Denver Art Museum. Grab a bite at a local restaurant before turning in for the night.

After waking early and layering up, you’ll make the picturesque drive to Breckenridge. After checking into your resort, it’s time for your first of many opportunities to strap on your skis or snowboard for an adventurous mountain experience. If you’re a beginner, there are many options for lessons in the area or try out a gentle run at Peak 8 called “Trygve’s.” If you’re a bit more experienced, you’ll head to Peak 6, “Beyond Bowl,” for a challenging double black diamond ride with epic terrain and views. After a break for lunch, take a quick commute to Frisco where you’ll hike Sapphire Point Overlook Trail. The hike itself is relatively short (a little over a half mile) and the reward of Dillon Reservoir plus mountain range views is worth every second. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring Breck and dining downtown, with a nightcap at one of the local restaurants or breweries. 

For your second day in Breckenridge, you’ll get a truly unique, eco-friendly wilderness experience by staying in backcountry in one of the Summit Huts. Once you’re checked in, take a nature hike, ski, or snowboard Bald Mountain, followed by rest and relaxation in the wood-burning sauna at your hut. Have a peaceful dinner in your accommodations surrounded by undisturbed Colorado beauty.

After breakfast with a side of tranquility in your hut, you’ll hike the surrounding area for a bit, then drive about an hour to Idaho Springs. There, you’ll head to Indian Hot Springs where you’ll experience geothermal caves with natural hot tubs fed by mineral water. Spend the day soaking your sore muscles, then stop for a quick, beautiful hike at St. Mary’s Glacier before making the trek back to Breckenridge for a distillery tour and dinner.

Today you’re heading to Boulder! Once you arrive, you’ll embark on a guided nature hike, followed by more active exploration with a leisurely three-mile hike on Mt. Sanitas Trail. Get the genuine local experience in the evening by dining at the quirky food truck park and beer garden, Rayback Collective, located at a former community-beloved plumbing building.

After you wake up in Boulder, grab a coffee and pack a picnic brunch. Head to Chautauqua Park at the Flatiron foothills to enjoy your meal surrounded by meadows and idyllic scenery. Next, it’s off to Eldora Mountain Resort for one final ski or snowboard opportunity in fluffy powder. Eldora offers 600 acres of ground to cover and is doable for all levels – beginners to expert shredders. After you’ve had your adrenaline-laced fill, make your way back to Denver.

Your trip may have been centered around cold weather, but you’ll leave Colorado buzzing with warm memories.

From unique local culture to snow-covered mountain runs, wintertime in Colorado has something for everyone. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast or an adventure seeker, sustainable travel is a unifying goal that every visitor can appreciate in this environmentally-conscious state.
