It’s starting to sound as though snow is getting dumped on the Rocky Mountains on a weekly basis now. For Coloradans, that’s excellent news. Even the Denver cardiologists at South Denver Cardiology are anxious with anticipation. Ski season is upon us, and it’s a very exciting time in Colorado. Cardiologists love to see people get physically active, as physical activity means better heart health. Colorado is well-known for its skiing, and it’s rare to meet a Coloradan that doesn’t strive to enjoy this time of year.
There are a plethora of ski resorts in Colorado. With at least 25 ski resorts, each with its own flavor, skiing enthusiasts flock to the Colorado Rockies. With its famed skiing, Colorado is often compared to Switzerland for its luxury resorts like Vail and Aspen. But that doesn’t mean you have to be swimming in wealth. More affordable resorts like Crested Butte and Eldora exist throughout the state. You just have to your own research before you trek into the higher terrain.
And skiing is excellent for your health. A strenuous physical activity, skiing works many of your muscles simultaneously, while also offering great cardiovascular benefits. After a day of skiing, you’ll be feeling exhausted, but the next day you should feel wonderful. And it’s the kind of exercise that is exhilarating. The rush of speeding down a hill, or going over a mogul, make the work out well worth the strain. Observing the majestic views across the vistas and valleys surrounding you as you fly down the mountain will take your breath away.
So plan a family trip to a Colorado ski resort this holiday season. Make sure your car is equipped to drive in snowy conditions in the mountains, and enjoy a one or two day trip in the Rocky Mountain winter wonderland.
