Adventures at 8,000 feet don’t come around every day! The whole family will love a visit to America’s only mountaintop theme park. Some of the more exposed (and chilly!) rides close in the winter, but the park makes up for it with spectacular views year-round. Don’t miss a once-in-a-lifetime cave tour, which is available year-round. Choose from a casual walking tour to an advanced 2-hour spelunking tour, perfect for adventurous families with older kids. After your tour, the park’s restaurant will be waiting with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and a hearty lunch.
Don’t let Jack Frost nip at your nose and toes when you can stay put! Hotel Glenwood Springs has an indoor water park with a 1600-square-foot pool, kiddie waterslide and two-story waterslide, hot tub, and basketball hoop, so you don’t even need to leave the building to have a good time!
Feeling like a bite to eat? Look no further than the Pizza Cave in our lobby, featuring fresh pizza, ice cream, snacks, and drinks, all right downstairs for your convenience.
Mega resorts, step aside! Locals know the place to go is Sunlight Mountain. This hidden gem in the Colorado ski scene offers lift tickets for about half the price as the big guys while still offering everything from easy greens for the little ones to steep tree trails for more advanced riders. Best of all: it’s less than half an hour from downtown, giving you more time to enjoy the mountain without more time in the car. Our popular Ski, Swim, and Stay package offers discounted tickets for Sunlight Mountain and Glenwood Hot Springs – your perfect winter family vacation awaits!
Nothing warms the heart (and sore muscles) like one of Glenwood Springs’ world-famous hot springs pools. The whole family can spend the afternoon soaking in the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, or kick back with a beer and watch the snowflakes fall through the rising steam at Iron Mountain Hot Springs. Whatever your speed, the Hotel Glenwood Springs is close to an experience that will suit you!
