Enjoy Winter by Skiing in Colorado With the Ski resorts beginning to open there are now new opportunities for us to  go outside and enjoy our beautiful Rocky mountains.  Having now lived in Colorado for a year one of the things I have fallen in love is the ability to stay active outdoors, even during the cold winter months.
