10 best ski resorts for families includes Colorado gems →

Forbes has put together a great photo gallery describing some of the best resorts for families. Of course, Colorado dominates the list with five well known spots:

  • Beaver Creek: escalators, kids teaching area, and most importantly warm cookies
  • Crested Butte: single base area means less lost kids, reasonably priced
  • Aspen/Snowmass: no greens but Buttermilk is good for learning, four mountains on one ticket
  • Steamboat: invented the kids ski free program, great family dining options
  • Vail: excellent ski school, Adventure Ridge, ice skating and “Kids Fly Free” into Eagle
