Rent a car in winter for a ski trip (or enjoy après-ski); travel in summer to have a go at the 58 “Fourteeners,” peaks exceeding 14,000 feet. In spring and fall, mingle with city dwellers in Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder. Scenic drives abound across the state where you can journey along Rocky Mountain passes, through river canyons or across a desert.
