2017 Winter Festivals and Activities in Colorado

 In Blog

As cozy as it is to watch the snow fall outside your window while curled up under a blanket with a hot cup of chocolate, when you live in Colorado, you don’t hide from the cold. You layer-up and head outside. Coloradans don’t hibernate; we celebrate winter activities.

2017 Winter Festivals in Colorado

Go for a romantic horse drawn carriage ride in the snow at one of the many winter festivals in Colorado.

Winter festivals in Colorado

You can test your winter sports skills at one of the many winter festivals and celebrations all around Colorado.

Think you’re great at building snowmen or making ice sculptures? Then you should check out the Budweiser International Snow Sculpting Championship in Breckenridge.

If you’re more into climbing ice than sculpting it, then head to the Ouray Ice Festival in late January. You’ll be awestruck (and a little terrified) as you watch world-class ice climbers scale frozen waterfalls.

Test your snowman building skills

If you feel like your backyard snowman village isn’t getting enough recognition, take your skills beyond the boundaries of your garden. Test your snowman building skills at the Rio Frio Ice Fest in Alamosa. That’s fun for the whole family!

Dare to take the penguin plunge!

Pagosa Spring Winter Festival

If you took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge of 2014, then you may be ready to take the San Juan River’s Penguin Plunge which is part of the annual Pagosa Spring Winter Festival. Afterward, you can warm up with a cup chili at the Anything Goes Chili Contest.
