Colorado Family Friendly Skiing

by JoAnn Gadkowski Team

Living in Colorado, we’re fortunate to have some of the premier ski areas in the world and, even if you’re not a skier, you are surely familiar with the names of some of the mega resorts that dot the northern half of our state. Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Vail and others lie along the interstate 70 corridor and annually attract thousands of skiers to their slopes. However, the southern half of the state has some lesser known areas that can be great places for a family ski trip. If you want to enjoy a great winter getaway with the family, you’re likely to find fewer people and a better value at some of these areas that are still within a reasonable drive from Colorado Springs.

Here’s a rundown on some of the family friendly features they offer.

The Country Club of Colorado

by JoAnn Gadkowski Team

The Country Club of Colorado was the focal point of that vision and in 1971, Gates Land Company selected Pete Dye as the architect to design and build our golf course. The Club opened nine holes in the fall of 1973 and from the beginning, the community and the Club were a success. The golf course was built around a spring fed lake known as Curr Reservoir. In addition to a championship golf course, the Club's recreation programs offers tennis on 17 courts (5 indoor), exercise and fitness programs, water sports on the lake and a multitude of social and family events throughout the year on our own private beach. The Clubhouse includes The Pineview Grille, Family Dining Room, Member's Lounge, Lakeview Banquet Room and Terrace, Golf Pro Shop and the newly renovated Golf and Fitness Locker Rooms.
