Denver’s metropolitan region, which is home to around 2.5 million residents, lies precisely one mile above sea level and is one of the most popular regions in the USA. A number of mining companies and major telecommunications groups are based in Denver, where other important industries include the energy supply and logistics industries. Denver is well-known among private travelers as the eastern gateway to the Rocky Mountains. The popular skiing resorts of Vail, Breckenridge and Aspen are only a short drive away from the city.
