My family recently went on our first ski trip to celebrate our daughter’s third birthday. We chose to ski in Keystone, Colorado, which is roughly a two-hour drive from Denver International Airport.
While we are no strangers to family adventure vacations, skiing for multiple days straight can be tiresome for anyone. Add young kids to the mix and, without a break, you could be asking for a disaster. We quickly discovered endless options for other outdoor activities for the days we weren’t skiing to add adventure to our vacation, even though it was cold and snowing. Here are four winter activities your family can enjoy in Keystone, Colorado, when you or your kids get tired of skiing.
Though we were taking a break from skiing, we still wanted to experience a thrill from the activities we’d be doing. Snow tubing was the perfect addition to our adventure vacation and something our entire family could enjoy. Most tubing locations allow kids 36 inches and up to participate. If not, they may have a smaller tubing hill for shorter kids next to a bigger tubing hill for everyone else. Most of the tubing locations in the area offered various lanes ranging from mild to extreme, so you can decide how adventurous you’d like to be! Prices vary by location, but tubing is offered at Keystone Resort, Frisco Adventure Park and Copper Mountain.
