Ashley Sifers, of Ski Granby Ranch, is the Colorado Ski Instructor of the Year for 2013. A first-year PSIA Level 1 instructor, Ashley says she was “floored” when she won the award from Colorado Ski Country USA.

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.
So why would you try some place new?
