Here in the Mile-High City, the Rocky Mountains loom large – not only on the horizon but also on our minds. Their presence tugs at us during the workweek and draws us to the jagged summits and gentle valleys on the weekends.
There’s a whole other world to explore up there – risk and adventure on the jagged peaks and solace and finery in the mountain towns. In both, there’s excitement and escape. Whether you’re a mountaineer at heart, a die-hard skier, a fine-dining guru, or a master shopper, the mountains are your playground.
