Facts

When to visit:
Colorado certainly has a claim on year-round outdoor adventure. Summer is considered the “tourist season” and the state sees lots of visitors at this time, so one can expect tourist season prices to match all the tourist season amenities. Big game season is in the fall, so hunters flood the state when the leaves start to change. Winter is the real star in Colorado, however, thanks to the state’s famous snowy mountain ranges. Ski season is big here during the winter months, and with good reason; the slopes are some of the best in the world. Skier should be prepared for crowds, though, and keep a sharp eye out for bargains, because rates can be a steep as the slopes.
