State of Colorado Image  
 Winter Sports: Skiing and snowboarding. For Coloradans, skiing has been a recreational sport since the 1880s, but it grew in popularity after World War II. Colorado's powder snow and high terrain attracts winter sports enthusiasts from around the United States and world. Skiing and snowboarding contribute in significant ways to the state's economy. Skiing and snowboarding were designated the state winter recreational sports on April 8, 2008, by an act of the General Assembly.
