Trip Planning

If you’re headed to Summit County, planning ahead can save you time and money, giving you the opportunity to explore all the area has to offer! Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to a fun-filled ski vacation in no time.

  • Lodging: With River Ridge Rentals 47 properties, you’ll be sure to find something that fits your needs perfectly. Our luxury home accommodations are conveniently located with minutes of BreckenridgeCopper MountainKeystone and Arapahoe Basin and include ski-in/ski-out properties with that classic mountain style. Family- and pet-friendly, River Ridge Rentals has a property for every vacation type!
  • Lift Tickets: Buying lift tickets in advance means saving money and time! Head to and select the resort of your dreams (pro tip: they’re all great!) and the dates you’ll be hitting the slopes. Multi-day packs save money and you’ll save time in the ticket line! Purchase early enough in the season for multi-day/multi-mountain passes.
  • Stay Warm: Dressing appropriately will keep you happy and that means spending more time on the hill! Multiple layers and a waterproof outer shell are a must for protection against cold temperatures, wind and snow. Fortunately, Colorado has very few days of inclement weather and with around 300 days of sunshine a year, be sure to layer on the sunscreen, too. Check out Breckenridge’s Main Street Shops for the latest in ski and snowboard gear.
  • Ski and Snowboarding Lessons: BreckenridgeCopper MountainKeystone and A-Basin all offer both ski and snowboard lessons for a variety of ages and ability levels. From very beginners who have never been on skis to expert level riders looking to advance on their technical ability, a lesson is a great way to spend some time on the mountain. Group lessons are fun and educational for families while private lessons are perfect for those looking for more focused attention.
  • Drink Water: The most well-planned ski vacation can be easily ruined by altitude sickness. Keep an extra bottle on hand and if you feel sick, take a break before slowly heading down the mountain.

The perfect ski vacation starts with a little planning and ends by the perfect fire at your River Ridge Rentals accommodations. Start your vacation right by booking today!
