As enthusiastic as we are about the ski and snowboard life, we realize it isn’t for everyone. The ski resorts realize that, too. That’s why they offer so many options that go beyond just skiing and snowboarding. If you are planning to head to a ski town this spring break, keep everyone in the family happy with these alternative activities:
For those who aren’t much into the speed, snowshoeing is a great pastime. Enjoy the scenic landscape at your own pace and on your own time. Beaver Creek is only one of the many Colorado ski resorts that offers snowshoeing and cross country skiing options.
Looking for a way to zip through the snowy countryside? Try snowmobiling in Wyoming! Jackson Hole features snowmobiling tours that take you through the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful, Granite Hot Springs and more.
Soar through the sky while your friends are busy soaring down the mountain below. Zipline tours are available at several ski resorts across the state, including Breckenridge. Feel the exhilaration and enjoy the great view!
Recreate childhood memories with some good old-fashioned tubing down the mountain. Winter Park offers several tubing and sledding options for all ages so everyone can have a good time.
5. Lodge Life
If the cold weather just isn’t your cup of tea, then stay warm with a cup of tea inside the lodge. Relax by the fireplace, treat yourself to a spa experience, or reenergize with a fitness class. Keystone Resort, among many others in Colorado, is prepared to pamper you all day long.
There’s no reason to stay home on your family’s ski vacation. Enjoy the ski resort this spring break (without actually having to hit the slopes).
