Ski Trip Bucket List: COLORADO

Colorado is a wonderland of recreational sports, from skiing and hiking, to rock climbing, mountain biking and rafting. The state also has dry, sunny days in its arid desert regions, temperate forests in the middle elevations, and snow-covered Rocky Mountains as well as mile-high Denver. While it may not have the most ski terrain or snowfall of most U.S. states, Colorado is located in an area with some of the country’s best conditions for skiing. When you combine that with the state’s friendly locals and laid back atmosphere, you can see why many people love to ski in Colorado.

Skiing has been a part of Colorado’s history since early settlers first saw snow-covered peaks poking through the clouds of the Rocky Mountain range. Over time, skiing has evolved with the times, and in recent years as many people as ever have taken to its slopes in order to enjoy an authentic and exhilarating experience at one of the world’s most famous ski resorts.

Vail, CO is one of most-visited ski destinations in the state- and also the largest, sprawling 5,289 acres! There are more than 100 named runs and countless unmarked slopes to explore and if you like to ride in fresh powder, you’ll find it here. No matter what type of terrain you prefer, there is plenty for every skill level. Vail has something for everyone!

It’s easy to get to Vail from Denver, Colorado’s capital. Flying in from all points across the United States with direct flights from major airline carriers, Denver International Airport (DIA) is just a short 90 minute drive away. When you’re ready for adventure, you can drive straight to Vail Village and begin your legendary ski vacation.

If your thinking about skiing in Colorado, February might be the best time to go! There is a bunch of benefits that come with visiting a ski resort around this time. The snow is deep and the slopes are empty. Anyone who’s ever skied in Colorado knows that summer is the hardest time to hit the slopes. When it comes to skiing in Colorado, February is definitely one of the most delightful times to be on the mountains due to its cooler temperatures.

Hawaii

Hawaiian Islands Overview

Did you know that Aloha doesn’t mean hello? Although it is often used as a greeting, it really is so much more than that. As Robin explained it’s actually a value system that’s woven into the fabric of the Hawaiian people with a deep meaning. The term Aloha actually means “the breath of life” in Hawaiian so it’s literally giving and receiving the breath of life. And you know you really can’t have a more intimate connection with someone than letting them know your essence and it’s something that is really intangible.
