Is there anywhere that screams winter more than Colorado? From the snowy mountaintops to picturesque carnivals, Colorado is the state to be during the winter season. These are some of the activities you simply can’t miss out on.
Attend the Steamboat Winter Carnival
If you’re in Steamboat Springs February 6-10, this is the celebration you’ll want to include in your schedule. There’s a Night Show Extravaganza, a parade, and dozens of winter activities for people of all ages. A carnival might not seem like your typical winter activity, but this 106-year tradition is one that you won’t want to skip.
Go on a snowmobile tour
Grand Adventures truly offers a grand adventure, by way of snowmobile. No matter your level, there are tours available for you that take you on some of the most majestic trails through the Winter Park Ski area and the Fraser Valley.
Look, we could talk about skiing and snowboarding all day as far as Colorado is concerned—and for good reason—but let’s not forget about an equally fun outdoor adventure, tubing. The Historic Fraser Tubing Hill is a family-owned business that prides itself on offering a great family excursion (especially for those who may not hit the slopes otherwise).
Soak in the springs
Back to Steamboat Springs we go, and this time, it’s for a relaxing day in the 104-degree mineral waters. Strawberry Spring Hot Springs has private pools that are great for a day visit, not to mention the rejuvenating massage sessions and aquatic therapy that will do wonders for your mind, body, and soul.
Take a tour via dogsledding
Alpine Adventures offers a couple types of dog sledding tours that accommodate whatever type of guided tour you’re in the mood for. If you’re interested in learning more about the actual facility, you can also take a tour of the kennel.
These are just a few of the many winter activities that Colorado offers. Take in all of the greatness of winter by trying out one of them (or all)!
