This is a personal, two-year education, similar to what you’d get at private, four-year colleges or universities, but with the backdrop of Colorado outdoors. We offer a full range of learning opportunities from Breckenridge to Rifle, Aspen to Vail and Steamboat Springs.

We also offer Bachelor’s Degrees in Business Administration or Sustainability Studies. More four-year degrees will be added in the future.

Few other colleges match our invigorating blend of hands-on outdoor education, personal attention and rigorous academic preparation.

Colorado Mountain College courses can take you to the wilderness for outdoor studies or Natural Resource Management, have you working at Rocky Mountain ski resorts and four-diamond restaurants, or capturing the natural beauty through visual arts.

Our science and liberal arts associate degrees are designed to give you a broad and solid academic foundation to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
