7 ways to entertain your winter visitors (on and off the slopes)
Colorado is one of the best places in the world for skiing and snowboarding, and its residents and visitors both flock to the slopes every winter. As a new Colorado resident, I’ve been amazed at the phone calls from folks coming out of the woodwork – my second cousin, friends of friends, and my next-door neighbor from second grade have all called me since I moved here. Always a variation on the same message – Can I come visit? Is your couch comfortable? Can we go skiing?
Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little. But not by much – Every winter that I’ve lived in Colorado, I’ve had guests with aspirations of enjoying Colorado’s signature snow sports. But not all my guests have been talented skiers and snowboarders – many have opted for hiking, snow tubing, and other winter activities during their trips. I’ve become a seasoned expert at hosting visitors in Colorado, and I’ve put together a guide for entertaining your winter guests, on and off the slopes.
Kathryn Robinson is a native Floridian who transplanted to Colorado for graduate school and never looked back. She learned to ski for the first time in her early twenties and now she counts down the days until winter. When she’s not on the slopes, she’s working full-time in Denver, hiking, kayaking, or playing with her dog Riley.
