Psych. We don’t have one.

I guess if we had absolutely nothing else going on in our lives, we could plan to go to X resort this weekend, Y hill next Saturday, and Z in a couple weeks. But even then, what if by next Saturday, Y’s snow sucks and Z just got dumped on? Plus, there are certain places where we’re hoping to ski with certain people. We’ll do our best to accommodate that because it’s all part of the story, and mixing in friends along the way will make the stories better. So, our strategy is to stay as fluid as possible, and just keep checking them off the list.

Which brings me to … the list.

Here are the 28 resorts, hills, and mountains we believe constitute the complete Colorado ski catalog. (For the record, this list had to be put together using about four different sources, because, you know, why the hell would the Internet, with its real-time, all-access pass to the entirety of humankind’s intelligence have one comprehensive, indisputable directory of every Colorado snow resort. That would be asinine.)
