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.

Dear Kelly,

Is Nordic skiing the one where you are basically skating with skis on? I think you need a smooth surface for that. No funky ice chunks or hollows under drifts.
