If you are looking to get up to the mountains to enjoy the beauty of Colorado in the cold winter months, here is a list of some activities that are fun to enjoy with family or friends even in low temperatures.
Ice Skating –
With the temperatures being lower in the mountains, more lakes are frozen over and cleared for ice skating. This is an exciting activity for beginners or experts. Whether you’re trying it for the first time or are a pro on the ice, it’s a classic pastime to get out and enjoy in the winter.
Snow Tubing –
If you aren’t as ambitious as the hardcore skiers/snowboarders, then snow tubing is for you! There are multiple locations across the Rockies that you can sign up to tube down some slopes. It is not nearly as terrifying as a black diamond, but still thrilling for people of all ages.
On the other hand, if you are into those challenging black diamonds, then hitting the slopes for skiing/snowboarding might be up your alley. There are a large number of resorts and slopes to choose from all over Colorado depending on how far you want to travel. If you are interested in going skiing/snowboarding, make sure to check the resorts COVID rules and to see if you have to book an appointment before you go.
Hot Springs –
A more relaxing, warm activity to do in the winter is to visit one of the many hot springs all around Colorado. There are some natural ones and some at resorts, but either way, it is a great way to wind down and escape the stress with some gorgeous views. Again, make sure to check each hot springs’ COVID guidelines and booking systems before showing up.
Most winter activities in the mountains revolve around snow because it is everywhere, so if you can’t avoid it, play in it. Another snow activity to enjoy is to rent snowmobiles with family or friends. It is another thrill-seeking pastime for you when you are looking to go on more winter adventures in the mountains.
