Of course, when it comes to family ski trips Colorado residents enjoy, it is all about getting out on the slopes and utilizing the snow. Skiing is thrilling and addicting, and it can provide fun for the whole family. However, a ski trip is not complete without the perfect little mountain cabin to stay in while you are there. This is especially true for those who are coming from other states, who may not get to experience the natural beauty that Colorado offers on a regular basis. These people will love staying in a cozy cabin almost as much as they will enjoy tackling the slopes.
The first thing that any ideal ski cabin needs is enough space for the family. You do not need too much space – there is something about the close quarters that makes things feel fun and cozy – but you do need enough bedrooms. This is the first thing that you should think about as you begin to plan your trip. The cabin will probably also come with a main room that will serve as a kitchen, living area and eating area, and it may also have a loft that can offer you and your family extra sleeping options.
After that, you want to think about the amenities. What you need really depends on what you want the trip to be like. Some people like a rustic cabin without modern amenities, while others prefer to have a modern refrigerator and an updated bathroom so that living in the cabin is as easy as living at home. Most people will agree, though, that the best cabins are the ones that have fireplaces or wood stoves. These areas are great because you can sit around them and relax, warming up and drinking hot chocolate, after a long day in the winter weather.
The final thing to think about when you are picking out your cabin is the view. Colorado has plenty of options with stunning views of the mountains. If you are staying at a ski resort, or near one, odds are that these mountains are going to dominate the view. You may also have a beautiful view of the town’s lights glittering in the darkness below you if the cabin is on the side of the mountain. A good view makes a big different and offers you a chance to get some incredible photographs of your trip.
