Destination Spotlight: Colorado
Now that we’ve reached autumn and the cooler temperatures are hitting parts of the country, our team at Singles Travel Service is planning and looking forward to our ski trips out west this winter. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know we love outdoor adventures, especially winter sports. So it seems appropriate that we highlight one of our favorite places for this destination spotlight: Colorado.
This winter, we will be planning three separate trips to Colorado, exploring three magnificent winter sports destinations: Aspen, Breckenridge, and Telluride. Here are some top activities in each resort town.
In early December, we are kicking off the holidays early with our season opening trip to Aspen, Colorado. Aspen has some of the most incredible mountains to ski – including Ajax, Highlands, Snowmass, and Buttermilk. (We love their names, too.) What makes Aspen one of our favorite ski destinations is that in addition to these world-class slopes, the town itself is world-class. Aspen offers upscale dining, luxury shopping, interesting art galleries, and fantastic bars with live entertainment.
For beginners who are also interested in exploring the destination, Aspen is a perfect ski town. You spend some time on the slopes and time in the town, meeting new people all along the way. We also love the ski in/ski out aspect of where we stay in Aspen – the beautiful Stonebridge Inn. It’s within the village of Snowmass and just minutes from downtown Aspen.
We’ll kick off the New Year this January with our second Singles Travel Service sojourn to the big and beautiful, special and sprawling resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Breckenridge is massive, but in the best sense of the word. The area has almost 200 trails and bowls over 3,000 acres of terrain and it is supported by 34 lifts. We’ll be there for a week, and we will need that time to explore all that Breckenridge has to offer. (Pro tip: Arrive on Sunday, like us, as the weekend crowds from Denver are leaving.)
While Breckenridge has many gorgeous resorts, we happen to fancy Beaver Run. It’s located at the Base of Peak 9, it’s family run, and close to town. Love!
And last but never the least; we’ll head out on an amazing singles luxury vacation in March to the historic town of Telluride, Colorado. If you’ve never been to Telluride, you might not realize that the town boasts more than 300 inches of snow which makes for a perfect base for its more than 2000 acres for skiing. This is supported by 127 trails, 18 lifts, and a vertical drop of more than 4,400 feet (wow!).
Once again, we’ll be staying the glorious The Peaks. And what makes The Peaks a perfect singles travel destination is that this five-star hotel is a ski in / ski out resort – with one of the most luxurious spas in the country. Think: 5 floors, pools, hot tubs, and a full service menu of spa services. If you venture outside of the resort (and you should, at least once!), you’ll be greeted with a historic town center filled with amazing shops and restaurants.
