If you are looking for the best ski resorts in Colorado for families, this post has you covered. Every year, during our kids' winter school breaks, we love to travel for a destination ski vacation.
Vail is one of the largest ski resorts in the world. Its acres of skiable terrain range from beginner runs to a terrain park to some of the best bowls in the country. Skiing in Vail is EPIC. There is a reason they call them the “Legendary Back Bowls.”
Steamboat Springs, also known as Ski Town, USA, is one of the best Colorado ski resorts for families. Our family visited last winter, and it was full of fantastic, epic ski conditions, an excellent ski school, a great village and wonderful western town nearby, and lots of apres-ski activities.
Winter Park Resort provides something for everyone! There are plenty of winter activities to do around the area like sledding, snowmobiling, and tubing. If the entire family is new to skiing, Winter Park is one of the best family ski resorts as you can book a group private lesson for up to five family members.
Keystone is one of the best Colorado ski resorts to visit on a family ski vacation. The ski school at Keystone is top-notch and the beginner terrain is extensive. Keystone has three different learning areas with magic carpet lifts (the easiest lift for beginners) and two kid-sized chair lifts.
Breckenridge was one of our very first Colorado resorts. We have since been there a few times. Plus, there are lots of fun activities in the area including ice skating, snowmobiling, horseback riding, and tubing, and a great town area to explore for apres-ski.
