Three Reasons Why Colorado has the Best Skiing in America

Colorado is blessed by huge mountains running through the entire western region. The Rocky Mountains, the backbone of the North American continent are Colorado’s defining feature, and skiing/snowboarding is one of the state’s defining activities. Colorado has unique conditions that make it perfect for skiing and snowboarding in the United States. Here are three reasons why Colorado claims the best snowboarding and skiing in America:

  • Colorado’s ski season is longer. Colorado ski resorts usually open earlier than and close later than almost all other ski areas in the country. Every year, resorts in Colorado compete to be the first resort open for the ski season in North America, sometime sending the first skier down in mid-October.
  • Colorado has large resorts and small. While Colorado has some of the largest ski resorts in the country, many people cherish and covet the smaller ones, too. For large areas of uninterrupted powder, Winter Park, Breckenridge Ski Resort, and Copper Mountain are excellent large ski areas. For a smaller area with less people, Wolf Creek Ski Area is the best.
  • High Elevation. The average elevation for Colorado’s ski areas is somewhere around 11,000 feet above sea level. This high elevation keeps the snow powdery and fresh and provides vistas of mountain peaks for as far as the eye can see.

Chad Boulter is from Florida, but when he came to Colorado for the first time in 2008, he switched from skateboarding to snowboarding so he could spend more time in the mountains. Today, he is a professional snowboarder.
