Ski and Snowboard Trip to Summit County, CO


Outdoor Adventures is planning an epic winter break trip to Colorado!  We are working with Lifestylez a company that puts together ski and snowboarding tour packages.  We have selected to plan a trip to a resort in Summit County which includes resorts such as Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, and Keystone.  To receive transportation to and from Colorado and optional snowboard rental (first come first serve) you can register with Outdoor Adventures, however the payment for the package will go through Lifestylez. The additional price is estimated at $500 for the 4-day lift ticket and 6-day lodge package. The finalized info will be added as soon as it is finalized.  Contact us with any questions at
