Hello everyone! My husband and I are looking for an anniversary trip in late November/ early December. Neither of us have been skiing before. We're from Alabama and we have always dreamed of visiting Colorado. I've done lots of researching online and I'm still unsure of our best options. Where is the best place to visit for beginners? And just in case skiing doesn't turn out to be our thing, we would like to be in close proximity to other activities. Also, we would like to rent a car so we can drive around and explore but we're concerned about driving conditions. I've fantasized about staying in a little mountain town, with cute little shops and restaurants. Does anyone have any suggestions?
