There’s no denying it has been one hot summer here in Denver. So, why not take a break from the heat and hop on the road to higher ground on an epic road trip to some of Colorado’s favorite ski resorts? While not as cool as they are in winter, ski resorts are no longer just cold-weather destinations. They’re also perfect for summer retreats to beat the heat. With five resorts located within a few hours of one another, trade in your skis for bikes and your boards for hikes this summer with one epic Colorado road trip to these five ski resorts.
Kick off your road trip 1.5 hours west of Denver with a stop at Keystone. Sitting at 9,280 feet in elevation, Keystone offers a laid-back environment that is full of adventures with fewer crowds. Whether you’re into hiking, downhill mountain biking, hitting the links for a round of golf, horseback riding, stand-up paddle boarding, or simply relaxing poolside, Keystone has something for everyone this summer.
What To Do
From downhill on snow to downhill on dirt, check out the Keystone Bike Park. Keystone offers some of the country’s best downhill mountain biking where you can descend more than 30 miles of trails including lift-serviced singletrack for both beginner and expert riders.
Keystone Resort is also home to two distinct golf courses, offering 36-holes of championship golf in one beautiful setting, The River Course and the Keystone Ranch Golf Course. For a truly unique experience, explore the historic Soda Valley with one of Keystone’s signature Dinner Wagon Sleigh Rides where you can take in the beauty of the White River National Forest and soak up a bit of history.
On-the-mountain outdoor activities abound at the River Run Gondola Base Area including mountaintop tubing, climbing walls, bike park and bike haul, plus scenic gondola rides. On the water, visit the Lakeside Village to enjoy activities like kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats, paddle boarding and even bungee trampolines.
