Thus far this ski season has been amazing! It is only January and some of the major ski resorts like Copper Mountain and Breckenridge have base depths between 70 and 90 inches. Just in the last week most resorts have received 40+ inches of snow. It’s pretty amazing that some of these world-renowned ski resorts are only a short drive away from Denver. The only downfall about going up to the mountains is the traffic. Sometimes the traffic has been so bad that it has taken us more than 4 hours to get back from Breckenridge (which normally is about a 1.5 hr drive). I believe the key to beating the traffic is to leave rather early in the morning from Denver and either leave a little earlier or later at the end of a ski day.
