If You Don’t Like To Ski, You Can Do These 8 Other Epic Things At Colorado Ski Resorts

Can we tell you one of our deepest and darkest secrets? Do you promise you won’t judge? Okay, here we go… it’s possible that we have only been skiing once in our lifetimes and have no real desire to do it again. Before you ask, many of us are indeed Colorado natives (born and raised); however, racing down the slopes never really stuck with a lot of us. Since we know that we cannot be the only Coloradan who does not care for skiing, we thought now would be a great time to go over other things you can do at a ski resort, including:

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

What are some fun things to do in winter in Colorado?  

Colorado is a veritable paradise year-round, and in winter it really comes into its own. Sure, summers are beautiful, and autumn is spellbinding, but there’s just something about winter and all its magic that we’re head over heels in love with. Luckily for those of us who love winter, Colorado has snowy, cold winters, and there are tons of amazing things to do even when it’s chilly outside! For example, there are always the classics, like sledding, skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating, but there’s even more than just those as well. Did you know that there are plenty of entire towns that love to go all-out for the holidays, turning themselves into something out of a Hallmark holiday special year after year? It’s true! Check out this article for a list of our favorites. There are 28 different ski resorts peppered all over the state (and every single one is worth it, trust us).  You can also take a dip in some refreshing hot springs in Ouray, ride a horse-drawn carriage around town (pick one), or even try your hand at ice fishing. The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination!  

Where can I go snow tubing in Colorado?  

Perhaps an easier question to answer would be where you can’t go snow tubing in Colorado because it seems like everywhere you turn has some awesome hills and valleys for the ultimate tubing experience. Some of the most popular destinations for snow tubing in Colorado include Fraser tubing hill, in Fraser, which is so legendary that it’s even named for its tubing awesomeness. Then, there are places like the Frisco Adventure Park and the Colorado Adventure Park, in Frisco and Fraser, which are just too much fun to pass up (and popular with kids, too). In Steamboat Springs, you can find the legendary Yee-Haw Tubing Hill, and Echo Mountain in Idaho Springs is also a wintertime must-do.
