Family Project

Grand Tour Colorado is a family project inspired by the 5th grade passport program for students in Colorado. Our goal is to hit as many Colorado ski destinations as possible this season, and we invite you to follow along or join us...

Getting Started

Connect to us on social media (Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter), see where we are skiing, and meet up with us on the mountain. Get a Grand Tour Colorado passport and a sticker for each area you ski!

Become a member of this site (its free), keep track of each area you ski, post pictures and details of your adventures, invite more friends, and hopefully meet up with us along the way.

Coloradoans have a rich history of creating lists of destinations and then ticking them off. Most famous perhaps is climbing all of the state's 54 14ers. Even better is skiing the 14ers! Pick an activity, make a list, and go for it!
