Telluride Ski Resort
Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort

One of the best and most fulfilling acts that you can do if you love skiing and snowboarding is to visit a ski resort before trails are worn in and the snow is still powder. Skiing  on powder takes some time, focus and body athleticism. One more thing you need to know about snowboarding or skiing powder is that the snow must be of good quality. This means that the resort where you glide on the snow should have the appropriate environment. Junior snowboarding or skiing trail runs in Colorado will also increase the chances of you finally mastering powder skiing.

The following two resorts are absolutely perfect if you’re thinking of finally going the extra mile to do an awesome powder skiing session.

Telluride Ski Resort

One of the ways to make sure that you can do powder skiing is that the snow is dry. This means that you have better chances at doing a successful powder skiing move with how much higher the elevation or altitude yes for your runs. With more than 2,000 acres you can ski on, this mountain resort has the highest vertical drop among all of the mountain skiing resorts in Colorado.

It has 120 trail runs for skiing and snowboarding. The great thing about that high number is that around 50% is devoted to beginners and those who are in the intermediate levels regarding their skills on skiing and snowboarding.  This one has more than 12,000 feet elevation. This resort also receives more than 300 inches of snow each winter.

There are a lot of great pathways in this resort so you can definitely find an area where you can practice. With how good the resort is, there is no doubt that at the very least you will enjoy your stay.

Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort

This skiing resort is known for having the longest skiing and snowboarding season. They usually close the season around June and sometimes even the first week of July. This is rather long compared to other resorts that close around April. This also has the highest skiable elevation in the country at more than 13,000 feet. The terrain in this ski resort is amazing for skiers and snowboarders from intermediate to expert levels due to steep slopes and rougher mountains. The most notorious among the locals and experienced snowboarders would be the East wall. This is where the more complicated terrain is present.

If you want a more exclusive feel to your powder skiing, you can try the resort’s own terrain park called the Exhibition. True to its name, you can exhibit and perform live tricks and perfect your powder skiing. For a more modern and hardcore terrain, then you can also head out to the Montezuma Bowl. This bowl has everything from sprawling intermediate runs to more advanced challenges.

Whichever of the two resorts you choose, you can be assured that you would have prime conditions to finally learn and even master powder skiing. The wonderful views and friendly staff is just the icing on the cake. And after an exciting day of hitting the slopes, make sure to have a comfy sweatshirt to relax in like our Colorado Native Unisex Two Tone Fleece Hoodie.
