The winter is one of the best times to visit Colorado. Once the snow begins to fall, the locals love to hit the slopes. There are nearly 26 ski resorts around the state that attract visitors from all around the world. Although Colorado is a wonderful skiing state, it also has plenty of winter activities for those who aren’t interested in skiing or snowboarding.

Here are some of the winter activities you can find around Colorado:

Snow Shoeing Around Colorado

A great family-oriented activity that you can do if you’re traveling with young ones is snowshoeing. It’s an easy and fun way to explore snowy Colorado. There are plenty of snowshoeing trails around the state, or you can go off the beaten path and make your own trail!


If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, snowmobiling is another popular Colorado activity. Snowmobilers can enjoy the Colorado mountains in a new and exciting way. Visitors can find guided and unguided tours where you can explore forest trails, meadows, and other snowy views.

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a popular winter pastime. Several state parks in Colorado have natural ponds where visitors can skate among some of the most scenic views you can find. If you’re looking for a state park to skate near Eldora Lodge, Golden Gate Canyon, and Cherry Creek, both have skating options! Plus, while you’re there, you can enjoy other outdoor activities like snow showing, cross-country skiing, or sledding!

Make sure you’re checking with the park’s conditions before you make the drive out there.
