Indoor Winter Fun

Winter Park isn't just about outdoor adventure; there's plenty to do indoors, too. Participate in arts and crafts programs, try your hand at archery, take a swim, enjoy the spa and more. Whether you're taking a break from skiing or riding, or looking to stay warm this winter, we have plenty of ways to play indoors!

Find Your Artistic Side

For the creative types, Snow Mountain Ranch-YMCA of the Rockies has an arts and crafts program that is included in the day fee (materials cost extra). The ranch offers mosaics, ceramics, tie-dying, jewelry making, beading and much more.

If you're more into art appreciation, you'll want to visit the area's exceptional local art galleries and maybe even take a piece of inspiration home with you.

Learn Something New

History buffs and families alike will enjoy the local museums & historical tours throughout Grand County. Step back in time on one of our tours or take a break from the winter weather and mosey through a museum at your own pace.

Take a Swim or Join a Class

If you're spending time at Snow Mountain Ranch/YMCA of the Rockies, the pool is included in your day fee. Take a dip in the pool after participating in some of the ranch's other great activities.  

Looking for a full recreation center experience? Try out the giant hot tub at the Grand Park Community Recreation Center or bask in its sauna and steam room. And of course if you have kids, they'll enjoy the 25-yard lap pool, lazy river, water slide and aqua play structure. In addition to these pool features, the Grand Park Community Recreation Center offers a multi-sport gymnasium, a climbing wall, cardio/circuit training, free weight areas and drop-in child care.

Interested in fitness classes? From yoga to spin, pilates to private training sessions, we have plenty of ways to keep you active!

Plan Family-Friendly Evening

A new and welcome addition to the valley, The Foundry Cinema & Bowl, is a state-of-the-art movie theater and bowling alley. The foundry features eight bowling lanes, a full bar, handmade wood-fired pizza, pool tables, shuffleboard, air hockey and mega screen theaters complete with leather reclining seats and in-theater meal service. It's the perfect way to spend an afternoon and evening indoors.
