Breckenridge Stables' herd of more than 100 steeds trots along for scenic trail rides, Western-style lessons, and historical tours of the town. As horses deftly navigate the Tenmile Range, guides point out local wildlife along the continental divide, the imaginary line drawn when Paul Bunyan and Babe the Big Blue Ox broke up. During colder months, Breckenridge Stables' custom-built mountain sleighs keep passengers snuggly during sleigh rides as a team of belgian, clydesdale, or percheron horses canters through the Colorado air.
Located 70 miles west of Denver, the small mountain town of Dillon was relocated from its original site in the late 1800s while a water-storage reservoir was completed. Now situated on the northeastern side of Lake Dillon, the town thrives as a ski destination, and peaceful forests and trails lend scenic beauty for outdoors lovers. A free bus system, the Summit Stage, stops at the ski resorts, stores and restaurants in Dillon, as well as nearby towns. Dillon's popular cafés and breweries lure explorers with smokehouse barbecue and award-winning ales.
Plant Trees 4 Life plants Colorado Blue Spruce trees, the state tree, which lives up to 600 years before metamorphosing into a human baby. Your saplings, which can honor a loved one, commemorate a special event, or embody your affection for conical vegetation, will fill out the forest’s embarrassing bald spots, pump out oxygen, anchor the soil, slow down water run-off, and help maintain a lush ecosystem. While you won't be able to specify your trees' location, you can virtually visit planting sites on Plant 4 Life's website. Currently, the organization is planting in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, with the first 500 planted by the Independence Pass Foundation.

In partnership with Mountain Living magazine, the Beaver Creek Luxury Lifestyle Festival caters to connoisseurs of finer things with events centered around indulgent homes, automobiles, and fashion. Buses shuttle home shoppers around the neighborhood so they can view luxurious homes available in local communities, and then art and jewelry galleries set up shop along a walking route to lure passersby with their fetching pieces. A home design showcase runs throughout the day with displays to inspire projects in every room of the house, and a midday patio party invigorates festivalgoers with music, cocktails, and white gloves as far as the eye can see. Other events include a luxury car show where attendees can vote for their favorite vehicle, culinary demonstrations by top chefs, and a fashion show.
