Northwest Colorado’s spectacular landscape was forged by the Colorado River. The stunning landscape makes this region of the state a wonderful vacation destination.
The mountain resort towns of Aspen, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, Keystone, Frisco offer world-renowned Colorado powder skiing and winter sport activities to both the expert and novice. These same mountain slopes become fields of wild flowers and delight visitors hiking the trails and riding their mountain bike in the summer & fall seasons. After a day in the great outdoors, soothe your tired muscles in one of several natural hot springs facilities sprinkled around this part of Colorado.
Shopping and dining are first rate, with choices ranging from the casual fare of Beau Jo’s Pizza in Idaho Springs to world-class dining. The topography and climate change dramatically as you head to the Western Slope’s towns of Palisade, Grand Junction, and Fruita. High, flat-top mesas and low valleys make this a prime fruit growing and wine producing region for the state. Bring your bike and peddle from winery to winery during the fall crush, savoring the sights and aromas as you soak up the fantastic Colorado sunshine. Grand Junction is also home to Powderhorn, one of Colorado’s Gem Ski Areas.
