    Did you know that Colorado is the nation's premier ski and snowboard destination that has more than 2,000 trails and 33,000 acres of mountain terrain in 26 ski resorts? Plus, Colorado has plenty of off-mountain activities that include dog sledding, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, ice climbing and more than you might expect.
