publisher’s NOTE | issue 26: winter 2020

elcome to the new issue of Colorado Traveler. We are excited to share that we’ve gone 100-percent digital. So many of our loyal readers have told us they’d love to receive Colorado Traveler in their inbox, so we listened, and we delivered.

As you’ll see, Colorado Traveler remains true to its commitment to deliver compelling content that showcases our beautiful state in all its facets – rave-worthy restaurants, don’t-miss attractions, sophisticated hotels and resorts and more – all from the perspective of our writers who live here and love every moment! We cover the personalities who call Colorado home, the adventures to be had, the scenery to behold.

In this issue, we’re excited to provide a close-up interview with superstar skier Lindsey Vonn, whose work ethic, tenacity and determination made her the one of the sports most-famous, and most-watched competitors. Now retired from the racing circuit, Vonn continues to push limits, devoting time to her nonprofit, writing a memoir and so much more.

We also take you around the state to some of our favorite resorts and hotels. With so many wonderful options and amenities, you’ll understand why Colorado is the place to visit – and to return to time and again. From the mountains to the city, there’s no end to unique experiences and adventures to discover every time you travel – whether you are from out of town or are fortunate to live here year-round.

If you’re up for some cold-weather fun this winter, check out our feature on skinning, a sport that is quickly gaining popularity as a “killer” workout and an unparalleled way to take in the stunning scenery.

So enjoy this magazine at your leisure and make check out some of the fun and unique places. We spend time compiling the best of the best each issue, so that all you have to do is choose what to see and experience during your travels. Have fun and enjoy!
