Google searches for ski area destinations show that Colorado has several popular locations.

Those of us who live in Colorado know how awesome it is, and it looks like the rest of the world is figuring that out, too.

As far as skiing and snow sports go, Colorado is one of the first places that comes to mind due to our endless mountains and year-round presence of snow. And it's not just us saying that; a recent analysis by competitive marketing research company SEMrush revealed the most searched for ski trip locations online.

Four of Colorado’s ski resorts made the list of 14 ski destinations. Aspen took No. 4, Telluride came in at No. 8, Breckenridge was No. 10, and Vail at No. 11. Colorado was the only state to make the list more than once. The top searched destination was Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

SEMrush used data from online searches between August and September 2019 to learn what travelers were searching for regarding ski trips and locations during that time span.

Snowfall in Colorado last season lasted well into spring and that made for a record-breaking year for the ski industry. Colorado Ski Country USA reports that Colorado will end the season with "a record 13.8 million skier days". This is up a remarkable 13 percent from the previous year and is 12 percent above the five-year average.

With all the snow we have already seen before Halloween (check out our article here), Colorado is on track for another stellar snow season, and it looks like we will have plenty of visitors to the slopes this winter. Some areas have already opened, and several are set to open soon. Read our list for all the opening dates around the state. It was just announced that Winter Park will be opening early for the season, the earliest opening day in 80 years as a result of over 40 inches of snow that fell in October. Winter Park will now open this Saturday, November 2, almost two weeks earlier than expected.

There is sure to be a lot of time spent out in the powder, so make sure you know what to do if you get into an accident with another skier.
