11 FAMILY-FRIENDLY WINTER ACTIVITIES IN WESTERN COLORADO

SKIING - Whenever we tell out-of-staters that we're from Colorado the next question that always follows is, "Do you ski?" While we don't (usually), you might! There isn't a shortage of ski slopes in Western Colorado and there's even a smaller slope, Sunlight Mountain, in Glenwood Springs that's super convenient for wedding guests at Vista View Events.
