10 Things to Do At a Colorado Ski Resort
You came to conquer a mountain, to stay in the lap of luxury and to experience everything that a Colorado ski resort has to offer. While skiing and snowboarding are typically at the top of most people’s “to do” lists when they visit a Colorado ski town, there is so much more to experience than epic powder days.
Best experienced when the sun goes down and the lights go up, skating (in the center of many of the mountain villages) is a dazzling excursion that is both relaxing and refreshing.
Take a break from tearing down the mountain on your feet and kick back on a snow tube. There’s no place like a tubing hill for the whole family to get in some laughs and make a few memories.
With splendid mountain views and unique village boutiques, shopping in a mountain resort is completely different than any other place on earth. Discover one-of-a-kind items you simply won’t find anywhere else, plus all the exclusive ski gear from top brands you’ve come to love.
Experience the mountain from a whole new position. Riding a snow bike! Mount this modified bicycle (with skis instead of wheels) and hit the slopes for a whole new ride.
Located in Breckenridge, the Gold Runner Alpine Coaster is part roller coaster, part mountain tour and all excitement. There are one- or two-seat cars available, and you control the speed of the car.
With locally inspired spa treatments and positively lavish rooms, these signature spas will melt away every tension. Pick an all-day package or stop in for a relaxing midday massage. These spas are the pinnacle of luxury.
There is no experience quite like skiing at night. While it requires you to stay on the slopes for a few more hours (which is likely not a problem at all), the difference between sunlit and moonlit skiing is unforgettable.
Travel back in time when you hop aboard a horse-drawn sleigh. With blankets and hot cocoa to keep you warm, you’ll venture across the snowy landscape to a remote ranch for a gourmet dinner.
You don’t have to live in the Arctic to experience the thrill of dog sledding. Get the chance right here in Colorado to mush a team through Rocky Mountain splendor.
For experienced, adventurous skiers who want to venture beyond the lifts, Cat vehicles are the ticket to pristine backwoods trails and miles of untracked powder.
Colorado ski resorts offer an abundance of things to do during the day or at night. You’re coming to ski but remember how much more there is to enjoy both on and off the mountain.
