What’s cool: Boasting “The Most Snow in Colorado” (on average, 465 inches of the light, fluffy stuff–a major draw for dedicated powderhounds), Wolf Creek is set deep in the San Juan and Rio Grande national forest due east of Durango. cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff inc cool stuff for kids

What’s cool: Family friendly and only 110 miles west of Denver (or a mere 30 south from Vail/Eagle)–there are few crowds here and virtually zero lift lines. Beginner and intermediate skiiers will be thrilled. cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff inc cool stuff for kids

Where to bunk: Victorian-era Leadville (nicknamed the “Two Mile High City” at over 10,000-feet). We like the historic Delaware Hotel, built in 1886 and a favorite with ghost-hunters. cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff inc cool stuff for kids
