Colorado — Travel Tips

  • Rent a car at the airport. You will want to have your own wheels to explore vast Colorado
  • When traveling in winter be sure to keep an eye on the weather because major snowstorms can roll in overnight and avalanches are a serious threat
  • Make hotel bookings well in advance if visiting a ski town during peak season or during a hot summer festival
  • Look for special holiday packages at major ski resorts that include lodging, lift tickets and other deals for significant savings
  • Be aware of altitude sickness when moving quickly from lower elevations up to ski areas and consider arriving 2-3 days early to acclimate
  • Remember that the Colorado alpine sun is extremely strong, even in winter, so wear plenty of sunscreen when outdoors
