Colorado’s Classic Mountain Towns, June 2007

From the jacket:
Colorado’s spectacular ski towns—like Aspen, Vail, Telluride, and Crested Butte—offer far more than just skiing: they offer some of the best hiking, mountain biking, fishing, shopping, dining, and lodging in the world, and all year round to boot. Author Evelyn Spence, a former editor of Skiing magazine and an avid outdoorswoman, has turned the state’s classic mountain spots upside down to find quirky annual festivals, superb Rocky Mountain cuisine, historic B&B’s, trout-filled streams, powder-choked runs, Manhattan-worthy shopping, and jaw-dropping drives. Whether you want to sleep under the stars or inside a toasty mountain lodge, this guide will help you plan the ultimate Colorado mountain experience.
