The most rocky and high-mountainous region of America, Colorado (Colorado) is located in the west of the country in the Rocky Mountains. Here are the highest peaks of the country, including Elbert Peak, which rushed upwards for more than four kilometers. Not surprisingly, skiing is the state’s main source of income: there are four popular resorts here at once: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone. In addition, the prestigious Aspen is located next door, on the slopes of which world celebrities roll kilometers. All resorts are connected by a free bus, there is also one ski pass for the ski lifts – The Colorado Ticket.
