Where do you ski in Colorado? If you’re like many of us, you’ve got a home resort that you return to year after year, week after week and day after day. You love your resort. You know every roller and glade. You know where to farm powder and you’ve sworn never to divulge the locale. You’re plugged into the best season pass deals and you’ve got your favorite spots for lunch, beer and coffee. If you’ve got kids, they’ve grown up skiing at this resort. It’s their second home.
