Skiers, snowboarders, backpackers, and road trippers have more than just the terrain calling them to Colorado. From Denver, heading west along Interstate 70 or south on Highway 285, there are food and drink destinations to be found, from mountain taprooms to restaurants in log cabins. Here, Eater offers the best of the ski resorts, the mountain towns, and the passes in between them. We’ll be updating this guide throughout the winter season.
