Snowboarding in Colorado (USA)

Being a little hesitant to book another trip (due to the cost of an overseas trip and no guarantee of snow), I decided to take the plunge and headed off to Colorado (USA) with Geoff Amaral from our office in January this year!

For years I have been dreaming of snowboarding the mountains of Europe and the USA and back in 2015 I took the family to Switzerland to make that a dream a reality, but sadly there was no snow! We made the most of the trip (and had an awesome time), but were definitely disappointed with the lack of snowfall. Funnily enough that Christmas was spent outside in in the sun, wearing boardies and a t-shirt – not the sort of Christmas you would expect on the hills above Lake Geneva in Winter!

Whilst the Colorado snow season was shadowed by the amazing one they had last year, it was still one of the most amazing trips of my life.

I had the pleasure of going all over Vail (with the ultimate guide), we skied Keystone, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead, Breckenridge and the world renowned mountains of Aspen.

The snow, the scenery, the beauty of the mountains, the villages, the people and the food were all AMAZING!

With the Epic pass that Perisher Resorts now offer, it means you an travel to around 40 different ski resorts all over the world and they are all covered by the one season pass. It makes it so much more affordable and opens the door to seeing (and experiencing) some amazing terrain and scenery.

They have recently added Telluride to their vast array of resorts, which is classed as one of the best mountains in the world. The next goal will be to tackle the mountains of Whistler/Blackcomb at some point in the future.

If you are considering the idea of going to Colorado, then I could not recommend it highly enough. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, expert or just prefer hanging out while the family goers skiing, Vail in particular has something for everyone, it is an amazing place and had some much terrain.

If I can offer you an advice, tips or help with a trip you might be planning, please do not hesitate to ask – I would be happy to help in any way I can. Enjoy!
