About Colorado: Northwest Region
The Northwest region is famous for its skiing, recreational activities and energy resources. Steamboat Springs, also known as "Ski Town USA," is the most populous city in the Northwest and has produced more Olympians than any other U.S. city. Other attractions include Dinosaur National Monument and Browns Park National Wildlife refuge. The region attracts many tourists year-round for its resource-based recreation including hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, camping and mountain biking. Aside from tourism, abundant energy resources are economic drivers for the region and the state's largest coal deposits are located in Moffat and Rio Blanco counties.
