Attractions in Colorado.
Ski State Colorado
When you think of Colorado, you think of winter - and rightly so. The heavy
snowfall in Colorado's often stubborn winters is responsible for the legendary
"powder", this uniquely soft, light, almost airy powder snow that seems to be
made for skiing. Unlike in Europe, the slopes in Colorado's ski areas are much
more open and largely unprepared, so you can enjoy unique deep snow runs. With
award-winning ski resorts such as Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge and Telluride, you
will find the best skiing conditions in Colorado in the USA!
Beyond the great expanse
Of course, Colorado is not only attractive in the winter months. Even though
almost everything here is overshadowed by the Rockies, Colorado has a rich
history and hip urban attractions, such as the lively metropolis of Denver. The
former Cow Town nowadays is adorned with iconic sports arenas, a vibrant
downtown area and modern meeting places. The nearby university towns of Boulder
and Fort Colins inspire in a unique landscape with student-like, cosmopolitan
flair. South of the Arkansas River you will find traces of Colorado's Mexican
past - the architecturally masterful rock dwellings of the Anasazi natives in
the Mesa Verde National Park are particularly impressive.
High, higher, Colorado
The mountain state of Colorado has the highest concentration of 4,000-meter
peaks in the entire United States. From the front range, the Rocky Mountains
roll west through the Rocky Mountain National Park and make their mark on the
Colorado landscape. But not only the mountains, also the sprawling valleys, the
professionally constructed mountain passes, which will give you breathtaking
views, the mesas, the many canyons, such as in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison
National Park, the endless hiking trails, the fascinating mountain bike Routes
and the remote mountain lakes in wild nature - are Colorado!

Frozen Dead Guy Days
Nederland, March 9th - 11th, 2018: In 1989 a Norwegian

story became public. Instead of condemning the man, in the town of Nederland,

Gunnison, June 2018: Cowboys and cowgirls pay attention:
