Ski, Stay, Eat and Play Year-Round in Denver

Denver’s proximity to the Rocky Mountains makes it your perfect winter getaway. When you stay here, taking advantage of a fresh powder day for skiing or snowboarding is a breeze with multiple world-class resorts less than two hours from The Mile High City. The Winter Park Express ski train connecting Denver Union Station and the ski resort makes getting there easy.

Looking for outdoor activities to get your heart rate up, but not an adrenaline rush? Try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing in Rocky Mountain National Park, also within a two-hour drive.

And the best part of using Denver as your basecamp is being able to head back to the city in the evening to dine at one of our James Beard Award-winning restaurants or grab a beer at one of the hundreds of local breweries that make Denver the beer capital of the U.S. Then check out a Broadway show at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, the views at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre or a blockbuster exhibition at one of our many notable museums.

If you’re planning a longer holiday in the Rockies, stay a few days in Denver to take advantage of all the city has to offer.
