Don’t Waste Time! 5 Things To Do BEFORE Your Ski Vacation

The decision is made, you and yours are coming to Colorado for a ski vacation. 

Eeeeeeeeekk!!!!    You can hardly contain your excitement!!!

Now, to start the planning. If you are lucky enough to read vacation-planning help like this, you’re on the right track.

The more that is organized BEFORE you arrive at your ski resort, the better.

Once you decide on your travel dates and have your airline tickets, follow these 5 steps to ensure your time away is well planned.

  1. TransportationAirport shuttle companies offer easy transportation to your ski town. The Mercedes sprinter vans are cozy for the drive or hire a private charter for an exclusive trip.  
  2. Black Tie Ski Rental Delivery

    Black Tie Ski Rental delivery helps you avoid those crazy rental shop lines.

    Lodging – Choose an established lodging company. Most companies have great visual website appeal and are easy to book online. Choose your vacation property based on your travel companion’s needs and location in the ski town.

  3. Lift tickets– Order your lift tickets online at least two weeks before your arrival to guarantee the best rates.
  4. Ski Delivery– After an exhausting day traveling, the last thing you want  to do is wait in line at  a ski shop that night or waste precious slope time doing it the next morning. Call Black Tie Ski delivery and get your gear delivered straight to your lodging the evening you arrive, and your rental charge does not start until the next day.
  5. Activities– Research your off-the-slopes activities for after the slopes or your day off. Many of the snowmobiling, tubing, dog sleds and spa appointment times go fast a couple days in advance, so book ahead in order that you don’t have to settle for your second or third choice activity.


The only other thing we may mention would be to keep dinner reservations in mind for busy weekend prime dinner times.

Anything you can plan around the popular hours, such aBird Mountains Snows the grocery store right after the ski lifts close or the lift ticket lines first thing in the morning, the more time you’ll spend actually vacationing.

Planning ahead makes your vacation so much easier. Be able to truly relax during your ski vacation enjoying every mountain view, powder turn, fun with friends and relaxing moments.
