Skiing and Snowboarding– If you visit Colorado in the winter you’ll be able to take advantage of what it’s best known for, skiing! Be sure you pick the right mountain for what you plan to do (aka. Vail is great for skiers but the catwalks are long/flat and can be challenging for snowboarders). Tip: Most people bypass Loveland Resort because it’s the “small” ski area. It has 93 runs and is an hour closer than the other ski resorts (and much cheaper!) so if you’re only planning to ski for a day, don’t prefer long car rides, and don’t enjoy waiting in line for the ski lifts this might just be the place for you!
White Water Rafting– If you visit during the summer months and aren’t afraid of a little cold water white water rafting is an awesome adventure. I would personally recommend IV-V rapids but if you’re not feeling brave or have kids along the calmer rapids would suffice. Side note: If your feet get cold easily wear water shoes and request to sit in the front of the raft (water tends to collect in the middle and back of the raft).
