Colorado Ski readies for Winter Season

Crested_Butte_Zip_Line_Fenlonphoto.comColorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts are preparing for the 2011/12 season like no-other by unloading a whopping $50 million for renovations, upgrades and a slew of other exciting new features.

“Without question, Colorado Ski Country’s resort facilities allow the state to provide the absolute finest ski vacation experience available,” said Melanie Mills, president and CEO of CSCUSA.  “Colorado has always set the standard with advanced improvements from high-tech lifts and ticketing systems, to state-of-the-art terrain parks and on-mountain amenities.”

Here is a brief roundup of what’s happening at just a few Colorado Ski Country resorts:  

To reduce lift time and improve service for all levels of skiing, resorts Buttermilk Mountain, Copper Mountain and Loveland are constructing new lifts to be used at their resorts. Each lift is expected to be completed by December.

Leading the way on terrain improvements is SolVista Basic at Granby Ranch. “Ted’s Secret Stash,” is an all natural log park off the Jackalope run, guaranteed to help get the hearts of runners pumping.   

Both Durango Mountain Resort and Crested Butte Mountain Resort have added year-round zip-lining to their respective list of activities. 

Inexpensive ski resort Echo Mountain is working to make its trails larger as well as more challenging.

Wolf Creek is building a brand new race hut for their upcoming Fun Race Series. The hut will serve as the housing facility for equipment as well as the official finish line for the popular race.

Lastly, Steamboat Resort is installing heated pavers throughout their Gondola Square base area. The pavers will ensure that guests will no longer have to commute to the slopes though an unpleasant snow and ice makeshift obstacle course.
