It may be Halloween, but here in Colorado Ski Country we sport costumes on the slopes year-round. Whether it’s Opening Day or Closing Day, a festive holiday celebration or just some good old-fashioned spring skiing, it’s not unusual to find folks skiing and riding in elaborate get-ups. Enjoy this round-up and get some inspiration for your own ski gear with the best costumes we’ve seen on the slopes here in Colorado.
