Colorado has some of the best ski resorts in the world, including for beginners and “non-skiers.” Aspen Snowmass, for example, never fails to charm each and every guest—even those not interested in the excellent powder-topped terrain. Ullr Nights, the Friday night gathering that takes place each week, includes family, friends, tubing, snowbiking, ice skating, hot chocolate, a bonfire and live music. The resort also hosts yoga classes at 11,212 feet with stellar views and excellent programs for kids.
