Say the following happens: You find a briefcase of cash. You adopt the I-O-U system. And you get an urge to hit the slopes. That’s when you’ll break out our Dumb & Dumber-inspired ski itinerary and vacation to the actual locations from the movie. (Shaggin’ Wagon optional.)
SPOT #1: FOR THE FILM HISTORIAN
The Spot: Stanley Hotel in Estes Park is an iconic lodge filled with history. 1909: It was built. 1980: The Shining was filmed here. 1994: Jim Carey wore spandex here.
The Scene: Lloyd (and his fur boots) park a red Lamborghini, shopping bags spill, cash flies and valet parkers everywhere rejoice.

SPOT #2: FOR THE DOWNHILL SKIER
The Spot: Copper Mountain Resort. A glorious mountain with long ski runs, a bustling ski village and the temptation of frost on every ski lifts.
The Scene: Harry discovers one fresh coat of frost on an unassuming pole and throws caution to the wind.

SPOT #3: FOR THE SOCIAL SNOWBUNNY
The Spot: Main Street in Park City, Utah. This famous street hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics parade. (And Jim Carey’s bowl cut.)
The Scene: Bond has the Aston Martin. These guys have a red scooter. You know the rest.

SPOT #4: FOR THE HOMEBODY
The Spot: The Chateau at La Caille, in Sandy, Utah. To get a room in this mountain mansion, you’ll need a realtor and a large checkbook. Or Mary Swanson’s luggage.
The Scene: Some call it the most iconic bathroom scene in movie history. We call it . . . the #2 scene.
