August is for Adventures

Escape to the Mountains for Summer Fun

Summer Adventures

The Fun is not over yet in Colorado's Favorite Playground! August is full of adventure in the Rocky Mountains. Not only do we still have great events going on at Rendezvous Event Center at Hideaway Park, but there is still so much to do amidst the fresh mountain air.

Here are some great ideas for your final city escapes this Summer:

Try out 24 separate challenge elements on a self-guiding system at the Winter Park Adventure Quest located at the Fraser Sports Complex. You can pick and choose which elements to tackle using your self-guided "smart belay" system connected to your harness that allows you to easily clip onto different routes. The Overall course experience at Winter Park Adventure Quest takes between 60 and 90 minutes to enjoy! Winter Park Adventure Quest also offers a guided 3-hour climbing experience just minutes away in the Arapaho National Forest. No experience necessary!
