For those looking for a challenge, we can recommend embarking on the Trail Ridge Road crest, which sits at over 12,000 feet with 11 miles above the treeline! Visitors from lower altitudes may feel the effects of thinner air, so it’s important to take time to acclimatise before embarking on anything strenuous.
If you’re a keen lover of winter sports, the Rocky Mountains doesn’t disappoint. It’s the perfect destination for exceptional skiing and snowboarding, with the pure scale of the mountainous surroundings offering scenery that makes even the Alps seem small!
As a final piece of advice, when you arrive, stop by a park visitor center for current information on road conditions and hiking trails. This will not only prevent you and your loved ones from getting into a tricky situation but it’s also a great way to gain valuable local knowledge to ensure to get the most from your stay.
