Colorado Ski Areas during Christmas for non-skiers!

Jump to last reply

I'm helping to plan a family trip for the week of 12/21-28 for 4 adults (mid-50's) and 4 kids (20's). Four of the group (not me!) are avid skiers and have skied many of the CO resorts before; one of the kids is at college in Boulder and another is in Phoenix, the rest of us are all in NYC area. I'm trying to identify a ski area that has activities for the non-skiers and would appreciate your insights. We're open to which area we're near (they're very experienced skiers and I think they like the bigger mountains like Crested Butte, Telluride, Steamboat Springs, Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge). The key is being in an area that has other stuff to do; things that would be of interest to the non-skiers are: casual snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, maybe a horse back ride or sleigh ride, spa stuff, galleries and shops to browse; maybe a movie theater or mall.

We'll probably rent a condo/house via vrbo or skiing contacts once we've identified the area, so I'm not worried about that. As long as it has big windows, mountain views, a hot tub and is within 30 minutes of civilization, we'll be OK. We know Christmas week is popular (read, expensive) but the most important thing now is location.

Thanks for any suggestions!
