Indoor Winter Fun
Winter Park isn't just about skiing/riding and playing outside. There are fun indoor activities to enjoy. Participate in arts and crafts programs, try your hand at archery, take a swim, try a fitness or yoga class, enjoy the spa (ahhhhhh!) - just some of the fun that can be had indoors.
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). They offer mosaics, ceramics, tie-dying, jewelry making, beading and much more. Then head to the indoor pool since it's included in your day fee.
For those more serious about their art, there are some exceptional art galleries you'll want to visit.
History buffs will enjoy the local museums throughout Grand County.
And we realize that sometimes guests get to feeling a bit weary from all the outdoor play (completely understandable!)? After all, the locals have the benefit of being acclimated and stay active in our big "backyard". Try soaking those weary muscles in the Grand Park Community Recreation Center's giant hot tub or bask in the sauna and steam room after your action-packed day. And of course if you have kids, they'll still have energy so will enjoy the 25 yard lap pool, lazy river, water slide and play structure for young children. Multi-sport gymnasium, climbing wall, cardio/circuit training/free weight areas and drop-in child care are also on site.
A new and welcome addition to the valley, The Foundry Cinema & Bowl is a state of the art movie theater and bowling alley featuring 8 bowling lanes, a full bar, handmade wood fired pizza, pool tables, shuffleboard, air hockey, and mega screen theaters with wait for it...leather reclining seats and in theater meal service.
You will also find a variety of wellness centers throughout the valley that offer massages, craniosacral therapy, and yoga classes. Be sure to be kind to your body and you'll be more ready to take on reality when you get back home.
