16 Kick-Ass Things to do Besides Skiing in Wintry Colorado

Not a rider? Not a problem… here’s a list of 16 Kick-Ass Things to do Besides Skiing in Wintry Colorado. While skiing and snowboarding are probably the most popular winter sports in Colorado, they are not for everyone. Thankfully, winters in Colorado offer a wide range of activities for the active (non-shredding) soul. Crested Butte’s Mountain Meadow Yurt experience is a must do on the list! The experience includes trail passes, nordic ski or snowshoe rentals, a guide, a five course catered dinner, beer or and cocktails made with locally distilled Montanya rum and live music. Some of the other recommended winter activities include checking out new frontiers by signing up for a mountain climbing course, heading out for an overnight yurt trip, ice climbing or making your own snow shelter for outdoor camping. Maybe that’s a little too adventurous for you? Some smaller scale options for winter lovers include snowshoeing, checking out a local sledding hill or hitting the trails on a fat bike- which can be rented in town at Big Al’s. Even if you’re not up for traditional winter activities, anyone can enjoy the fantastic sunrises and sunsets against the snow capped Rockies!

Have fun taking advantage of everything that Colorado has to offer!
