Colorado Resort Events Directory

Colorado Resort eventsColorado is home to 26 world class resorts and when visitors aren't skiing or snowboarding on the slopes, they're entertained by Colorado resort events. Each resort is unique and attracts visitors from around the world. Colorado resort events take place on and off the slopes. Base villages and towns feature music venues, bars and festivals throughout the year. In the winter, Colorado resort events include ski and snowboard competitions, holiday celebrations, family fun and free on mountain concerts. Winter sports include downhill racing, endurance tests, fat bike races and free style events including half pipe and big air challenges. Winter Colorado resort events also include family fun like snow shoe tours, dinner sleigh rides, free concerts and holiday celebrations.

Colorado resort events also take place throughout the summer.  There's even more beer/wine/art festivals, free concerts, mountain bike races and other sport competitions. Just because ski season has ended doesn’t mean the resorts are closed, so make sure to also check out these Colorado resort events during the summer.

Below is the directory of Colorado ski resorts and the towns they’re located in. Select a Colorado resort below to get more information on the events coming up at the resort.
