Ten Mountain-Town Dispensaries Worth a Visit

Whether you're visiting one of Colorado's mountain towns from out of state or making a trip to the slopes from Denver, cannabis has become a checklist item for many of us. And while we all like to bring our own goodies from home to save time and money, there's a reason that hotels keep toothbrushes and matches at the front desk.

Reputed to have high prices and lackluster quality, the dispensary scene in Colorado's ski towns has left much to be desired for regular cannabis users and connoisseurs during our visits. Limited competition and heavy tourist populations have sustained this landscape for several years, but it's not all shitty weed for bad prices. If you know which stores to visit or when to make a pit stop on your way to towns like Vail and Winter Park, trying to get high at upper altitudes won't be such a letdown.

Culling through notes on our personal visits, user reviews and menu prices, we compiled this list of ten mountain-town dispensaries that won't kill your tastebuds or empty your wallet.
