There’s this strange misconception that mountain towns shut down once the snow melts, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead of chasing Ullr and the powder gods, many resorts embrace Colorado’s 300+ days of sun a year with music, food and fun all summer long. So put on your party pants because there’s no off-season in ski country.

The town of Crested Butte is best known as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado. But the former coal-mining enclave nicknamed “the last great Colorado ski town” should also be known as the place where families can cultivate mountain-loving kids, says Zach Pickett, communications coordinator for Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR).

“It’s a smaller ski town that lends convenience in proximity, so it’s a lot easier for families once you get here,” he says.

The construction of  Loveland Ski Area’s new high-speed detachable quad from Leitner-Poma is well underway.  While there is still a lot of work to do before it is ready for Opening Day, thanks to some help from Terry Henningson, a Loveland Season Pass holder and former Ski Patroller, the new lift has a name.  The new lift will be called CHET'S DREAM in honor of Chester R. (Chet) Upham, Jr. (May 19, 1925 - January 24, 2008).

Not everyone can dream big, but Chet Upham could. From the beginning, Chet had a vision for Loveland that transcended what others had seen.  Chet became a partner in
