If you're looking for an epic Colorado adventure, look no further than hitting the slopes in the morning, and then playing a round of golf in the afternoon. Grab your skis, your clubs, and maybe even a Red Bull ( or stop at the local coffee shop) to help fuel you through this unique Rocky Mountain experience.
When the air's cold enough, the resorts can make snow and open once they have a top-to-bottom patch ready. So, in Summit County, that means that you can head up to the Arapahoe Ski and Snowboard Area. Go ski or ride for a while to get your fix before heading down to swing the clubs for a few hours.
Of course, there's not a whole lot of terrain open until the heavier snows arrive, but, c'mon it is October, and the fact that you can pull this off is pretty amazing.
Not too many other places in the world offer these two activities in the same day, and with renting skis, etc., it can take time and energy to organize. Do you really want your buddy taking care of all that?
That's where we come in. Please comment below if you've pulled this off, or if you'd like us to arrange a guy's trip specific to your wants and needs. I can even see hitting up the Dillon Dam Brewery for lunch and a local microbrew before heading to the course.

No matter the time of year when you want to come out to the mountains, we know which trails are dry, which slopes are open, and most importantly, where to find the info about which roads are open. Ask us how we can help you save time and money with your wedding and group party planning for the Rockies. Mention the Ski and Tee blog post and we'll throw in a gift certificate for a growler of a local microbrew.
