Tel: 1-303-407-2031

The resort west of Colorado is where you’ll find some of the world’s most legendary resort towns including Aspen/Snowmass, Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Winter Park and Copper Mountain. This area is a winter playground of skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing and tubing. Sun-seekers enjoy the summer months when the valleys overflow with waterfalls and blossom with wildflowers. As you move west, mountains give way to plateaus and mesas, where communities thrive on tourism and agriculture. The Colorado River flows through this area, forming impressive canyons where you’ll find recreational activities like hot springs and rafting. Enter the heart of Colorado’s wine country in the Grand Valley region and find over 20 wineries producing high-quality wines.

The average winter temperature is a high of 40 and a low of 13. The average summer temperature is a high of 78 and a low of 44.

LARGEST CITY: Grand Junction. Population of 146,000+ in the metro area.
