Hitting the Slopes this Season? 4 Dispensaries to Check Out in Colorado Ski Towns

Smoking weed might be prohibited on the slopes, but that doesn’t stop countless ski and snowboard lovers from getting their ganja on. If you plan on hitting the slopes this season, rest assured there will be plenty of dispensaries nearby to help with your high. Whether travelling to Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, or any of the other world-class ski towns in the state, you’re likely to find a few choices when it comes to picking out some quality cannabis for your winter wonderland vacay.


Roots Rx AspenRoots Rx actually has six dispensaries throughout Colorado, and are a definite must-check out next time you’re in Aspen. They’ve got a good selection at flower, at affordable prices (which can be unheard of in Aspen). Local strains run $25/eighth, $45/quarter, and $140/ounce, while top-shelf quality strains run $40/eight, $75/quarter, and $260/ounce.

For those who don’t like to smoke, Roots Rx has a good selection of carefully selected edibles. There are also topical salves available to soothe any sore muscles after a good day riding or skiing. They also sell vape pens and cartridges for those who prefer.


Telluride Bud Company Telluride Bud Company has been around before recreational weed was legal, and they definitely know what it takes to run a successful dispensary. This locally owned and operated business in the heart of downtown Telluride is one that shouldn’t be missed the next time you hit the slopes.

They’re open 7 days a week to meet your marijuana needs, with a good selection of different products to fit the desires of all types of cannabis consumers. Flower, edibles, infused products, and concentrates can all be found at Telluride Bud Company. A gram of flower will only cost you 5 bucks, and you can purchase an ounce for just over $140. Their selection is endless…and you can even order online to skip the line during peak season.

Copper Mountain

High Country Healing

If you’ve never skied or snowboarded at Copper, you should 100% check out this mountain that sits just outside Frisco. High Country Healing is about about a 15-minute drive from Copper, or you can easily take the free shuttle service (Summit Stage) to and from the mountain. They have a huge variety of strains at a range of prices to fit everyone’s budget, so whether you’re flying in first class or just scraped up enough gas money to make it up from Denver, you’re likely to find something you can afford.

At High Country Healing, you’ll find a lot of flower to choose from, prerolls, various edibles, tons of extracts, tinctures, and topicals. They even have something called PYOB (Pick Your Own Bud), where they offer a “fresh and engaging cannabis experience” unlike anything else available.


Green Dragon Green Dragon sits in proximity to the other Breckenridge dispensaries on Airport Road, just down the street from the slopes. As one of the largest suppliers of cannabis across Colorado, they’ve got some of the lowest prices you can find in the High Country. They’ve also got some of the best bud.

If you’re not into smoking flower, you’ll find a large selection of edibles ranging from Cheba Chews to cookies and drinks. There’s also premium concentrates and soothing topicals to help you relax after a long day exploring the world-renowned slopes of one of the most famous resorts in the world.
