Planning a vacation to Colorado can be stressful and overwhelming. With so many things to do and so many choices, it can be difficult to narrow exactly what you want to get out of your winter vacation. Here are some tips to ensure your vacation to the mountains is unforgettable.
1. Location is key
Most vacationers come to Colorado without personal transportation. Make sure you book a condo that is in walking distance of the attractions that you came out here for. Ski on ski off lodging options make skiing and relaxing very convenient especially for larger families.
2. Special deals
Look around online for deals on recreation, dining, lodging, and transportation. Summit County towns like Breckenridge offer great happy hours and other special deals to save some money and have some fun!
3. Safe, reliable and affordable transportation.
Time sensitive and reliable transportation makes the difference. Book a guest service driver at our mountain shuttle today! There are lots of transportation options from airport shuttles, local and county bus service, and even private car services.
4. Timing is Key
The time of the year is really an important factor when coming to Colorado for vacation. If skiing is on the agenda than a mid to late season visit will make the most out of your trip with more runs open than the pre-season.
5. Road conditions
Driving in a high alpine environment can be hazardous and a bad experience. Make sure to stay close to where you will be visiting. Weather can come on very quickly and can turn a nice dry road into an icy treacherous pass that can be very stressful to navigate if you are not experienced.
Go out and experience new things, people, and places. Vacations are rare so take away the most you can from it! Summit County is full of history and sights to see. Spend some time exploring as there are endless options for activities.
7. Make purchases in advance
Rent your condo, skis, car, reservations, shuttle in advanced to avoid wasting valuable time.
Make sure the lodging you book in advance has the amenities you are looking for like a kitchen (if you plan to cook) and enough sleeping room.
9. Plan your excursions well in advanced
If you are going on a snow mobile tour, dog sledding or snowshoeing; make sure to plan in advance and have the necessary equipment.
10. Fine dinning
Many high end restaurants in the mountains are by reservation only and it can take a long time to get a seat if you do not reserve.
