You Don’t Have to Ski to Enjoy Winter in Glenwood Springs
Don’t downhill? Don’t worry. There are plenty of winter activities in Glenwood Springs, Colorado for non skiers to keep you entertained.
Skiing and snowboarding may be the state’s biggest wintertime attractions, but for those who don’t ski there are still plenty of things to do in Colorado, especially in Glenwood Springs where hot springs and outdoor activities provide ample opportunities for relaxation and adventure.
Everyone knows Colorado skiing is world renowned. What may come as a surprise though is the fact that the world’s largest hot springs pool is located in the small mountain community of Glenwood Springs. More than two city blocks long, the “big” pool at Glenwood Hot Springs is a favorite place to swim and play even on the coldest winter days and the smaller, hotter Therapy Pool is perfect for muscle-soothing soaks.
While others hit the slopes, take relaxation to next level with a luxurious treatment at one of the best spas in Colorado. The award-winning Spa of the Rockies features a full range of massages, facials that address specific skin concerns and healing body treatments. For something extra special, indulge in the spa’s Signature experiences – extended services that include a foot bath, a therapeutic soak in the mineral hot springs and access to the Athletic Club for the day.
For those who want to venture further afield on their Glenwood Springs getaway, consider snowshoeing on one of the nearby trails, booking a snowmobiling tour at Sunlight Mountain Resort, taking a hike to Doc Holliday’s grave or just exploring historic downtown Glenwood Springs by foot. Other alternatives to skiing include cave tours and thrill rides like the Alpine Coaster at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, ice skating at the Glenwood Springs Community Center, taking in a show at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, and of course sampling the varied cuisine on offer at Glenwood Springs restaurants.
Just because everyone else is skiing, doesn’t mean you have to be left out in the cold. With hot springs and more, there’s plenty for wintertime visitors to do during their stay at Glenwood Hot Springs.
