Two famous Colorado ski areas will add terrain designed particularly for families and novice skiers this coming winter, but with some more advanced glade skiing too.
Copper (pictured) is launching the Western Territory, an area on the resort's western-most side dedicated to inspiring beginner skiers, kids and families to connect with Copper's history and heritage. This season that will include two new family-friendly adventure zones, two new trails and a connector trail that offer skill development and animation with the aim of inspiring families learning the sport.
Telluride will provide guests with 40 more acres of beginner and intermediate skiing including the new Grouse Glades. The resort will also make a $1 million upgrade to its snowmaking system covering 60 acres with the aim of providing a consistent early season snow product.
Colorado is home to some of the highest altitude ski areas in the world and ski areas and ski areas like Arapahoe Basin, Wolf Creek usually open in October, snow permitting, and most of the rest of the state's ski slopes in November.
International tourism has resumed to Canada already and the US border will reopen to leisure travellers from November.
