Discover self-catering villas and hotels in Colorado Rocky Mountains, United States

The Colorado Rockies are the captivating poster-boy for world-class skiing. Four monumental mountains – Snowmass, Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk – comprise of 336 trails over more than 10,700 acres of powder. However, adrenaline seekers can find exhilarating escapades year-round, with kayaking, disc golf, biking, hiking, hot-air ballooning and hunting all on the pulse-quickening agenda when the slopes are green. The city’s cultural scene has also flourished, largely due to jet-set Aspen’s celebrity and billionaire-luring charisma. The sleepy mountain town has glittering gallery and gastronomy scenes, noted film festivals and iron-clad members’ clubs. Vail, the largest ski area in North America, also hosts film and arts festivals and offers plenty of upmarket resort clubs for an exclusive apres piste. Snowmass Village – Aspen's underdog cousin – is turning equally elite, but no matter how high end the Rockies’ become, its vibrant wildlife and Herculean high-risers will ensure it stays untamed.
