    The Unexpected Winter Destination

    Boulder is located just 30 minutes from Denver and 45 minutes from the Denver International Airport. It’s a university town with a mix of urban energy and outdoor recreation that you’ll find perfect for a winter vacation. It’s got everything! 

    Ski and Board

    There’s a ski area just 30 minutes up Boulder Canyon. Eldora Mountain Resort has sensational snow and it’s so close.

    Bike the Same Day 

    The days are getting longer, which gives you time to ski until the lifts close (or your legs wear out). Then drive back down and bike on a trail right outside your door.

    Or Maybe Hiking Is More Your Style

    Same deal – drive down and go for a winter hike.

    Dine in America’s Foodiest Town

    That’s a lofty title we know, but that’s what Bon Appetit said about our food scene. It’s pretty awesome that you can ski, hike or bike, and then eat like a king, all in the same day.

    The Kitchen Boulder

    Great food means great cocktails and fun bevies, too.

    And awesome bars.

    But wait. There’s more!  

    Live Music, Performances and Art

    Boulder’s obsessed with the great outdoors, but what you’ll find surprising is its creative and artistic side.
