Winter fun in Colorado

With the start of a new year and brisk, single digit temperatures for the high today I am thinking about winter fun and ideas for what to put on your calendar for the next few months.

 

We all know that skiing is a great option and with an exceptional year for snow so far all the Colorado ski resorts are open & available.  If downhill skiing is not your thing consider cross country (be prepared for a work out it is harder than you might think).  Nordic skiing is also another option (I think I would need a lesson to get the leg bend thing down).  

 

Here are some ideas of things you might not have heard of but fun to either participate in or go and see:

 

With so many places to go and things to do the list can get long but I wanted to give you something to start with and build from as you discover what you love to do.
