Travelers Jannel and Kevin spent a few days getting shown around some of the best spots in Colorado by their friends. This is just a taste of what it’s like to be a temporary local in the Rockies. They Nordic ski Wolf Creek Ski Area — an amazing alpine resort near Pagosa Springs with the deepest snow in Colorado. They soak in the Wiesbaden Hot Springs in Ouray and check out the vapor cave. They get in some snow laps on the nordic trails in Aspen on fat bikes. And last but not least, they celebrate an amazing trip with drinks at Montanya Distillers in Crested Butte. Any one of these places could easily be the high point of a winter trip to Snow's Perfect State. But Jannel and Kevin hit up all of them. Yes, we’re a bit jealous.
