Spring break is the perfect time to enjoy some family skiing in Colorado. The powder is at peak thickness, there are plenty of flight options, and the average temperatures are slightly warmer. At Summit County Mountain Retreats, you can stay near the hill of your choice—such as Keystone or Breckenridge—for your Colorado spring break ski trip. Our top-notch amenities, comfortable lodging, and convenient locations make for the best family vacations in Colorado year-round. Here’s everything you need to know to plan memorable spring break trips for families.
What to Do on your Colorado Spring Break Ski Trip
When it comes to multigenerational travel, variety is key. Toddlers and teenagers have different interests, so the best family vacations in Colorado will cater to their individual needs. There are plenty of things to do in Summit County. Your teenager can learn how to stick a landing in the terrain park while your little one receives instruction from the best ski schools in North America.
Of course, spring break trips for families are all about spending quality time together. There are plenty of events and activities for the whole family to enjoy. Keystone, in particular, hosts tons of activities for all ages, plus their terrain has some of the best family skiing in Colorado! At the end of a full day on the mountain, watch the night sky light up with color from the Saturday evening fireworks show. The kids will point and shout in awe, and the display is pretty entertaining for adults, too!
While Summit County has the best family skiing in Colorado, our ski areas also have excellent adults-only attractions. If you want to hit some black diamonds, but the kids aren’t ready for the challenge, or if you just want some romantic time on the mountain, look into the ski resorts’ childcare. Most ski areas have some sort of daycare or ski school, including Loveland Child Care (18 months to 12 years), Keystone Daycare (two months to six years), and Breckenridge Child Care (two months to four years).

The Finest Colorado Rental Properties for Families
Traditional hotels aren’t always the best option, especially for families. Mom and dad deserve lots of sleep while on vacation, and the kids will giggle and whisper with excitement well into the night. With a vacation rental, you have floorplan options, such as multiple bedrooms and a living room. Our vacation rentals also have full kitchens, where you can cook up healthy meals for the whole family.
Because Summit County Mountain Retreats offers so many Colorado rental properties, there is something to suit every family. Those with young children might not be interested in swimming or hot tubbing, while those with preteens might prize those above all other amenities. Whether you want a waterslide or playground, these family-friendly Colorado rental properties have you covered.
