skiing in Colorado
The last time I skied in Colorado was in Breckenridge, but to be honest most of the large ski resorts in Colorado have comfortable ski-in/ski-out accomodation, and most large resorts cater to families. Do you have any more specific needs? What is your price range? What are you looking for in a resort?
beginner skiing in Colorado
I would recommend Aspen, though it's a little pricey. The slopes on Aspen mountain are suitable for intermediate and expert levels. if want to learning to ski in the area, you would need to go to Buttermilk, Keystone, Winter Park, or Copper Mountain for good beginner skiing.
ski vacation in Colorado
Arapahoe Basin is a cool place for a skiing vacation and the best thing is that you can go backcountry skiing up at Loveland Pass. If you do plan to stay there I'd stay in either Breckenridge or Frisco, both of which have a pretty good night life.
Thanks for your input and information! I'll put some links below so you can find out details about the different resorts. You do have a ton of choices, depending on what you're looking for. And with all that snow in Colorado this week, the conditions should be good.

Here you go! I'll give you the second half of the list now. There really are so many choices for skiing in Colorado. I don't think any state matches it, do you?
