Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Colorado your home away from home

Colorado is America’s mountain state, providing a holiday haven for walkers, skiers, snowboarders, rafters and nature lovers. The Colorado Rocky Mountains are a natural wonder of the world, creating one of the most spectacular landscapes in America, and to the west, the almost unfeasible beautiful desert landscapes simply have to be seen to be believed. There are 10 separate national parks in Colorado as well as over 30 world class Colorado ski resorts.

There are over 30 world class Colorado ski resorts to choose from, including the world famous resorts of Vail and Aspen, which offer over 5,000 acres of sensational skiing and snowboarding in Colorado. The Colorado ski resorts of Keystone, Steamboat Springs and Breckenridge are fantastically popular places to ski, snowboard and enjoy a vast range of winter sports.

During the summer months, the mountain cabins and chalets of Colorado are no less busy. The Colorado Rocky Mountains are alive with wildlife and outdoor sports enthusiasts. There are well over 350miles of hiking trails to explore on a Colorado holiday. The many national parks of Colorado are especially worth exploring on foot, as there are many breath taking sites to see. If you are lucky, you will be able to see moose, mountain lions, bighorn sheep, and occasionally bears. There are very few sports that do not excel from Colorado homes, with world class facilities for everything from golf to hot air ballooning, fishing to bungee jumping. Those wanting an extra adrenaline rush are in luck from a Colorado chalet. Mountain biking and white water rafting in Colorado are both sensational activities to try, and equipment hire, lessons and route maps are available from almost all the ski resorts in Colorado.
