About the Ski Resort

Cuchara does not grab the headlines like many of its Colorado neighbors but it is a good choice for an all-around day of skiing and snowboarding. The resort's terrain is evenly divided among beginner, intermediate and expert terrain so every member of the family has plenty of choices and snowboarders have the run of the mountain, as well as the Hit or Miss Snowboard Park. Eight kilometers of cross country and snowshoeing trails are also available.
