Check out the Georgetown Loop Railroad! They offer train rides, mine tours and dinner rides.

The Loop: You may want to pay a little extra for the fully enclosed car, but this 3.1 miles loop will take you over 4 bridges, up 640 feet and around 2 corkscrew loops. This ride from Georgetown to Silver Plume provides stunning views of the Clear Creek Valley. For more about this exciting ride click here.

Mine Tour: Why not add a little more excitement to your day by adding a mine tour to the itinerary. You can check out the Lebanon Silver Mine or the Lebanon Extension Mine. Both options are only accessible by train and will take you back in time to explore some rich history. For more details and tour lengths click here.

Dinner Rides: Choose between the wine and cheese train or the beer and brat train. All rides take place in a parlor car and will take you on an hour and a half journey through the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic District. Ride times are more limited, click here for more information.

Any of these options would be a great way to see some stunning views, learn about Colorado’s mining history and create some great memories. For more information and to book a ride contact either the Grand Time Lodge or Grand Lodge on Peak 7 Activities Department.

Winter Activity Highlight: Snowmobile/Zipline Tour

snow1[1]Feeling adventurous? Try snowmobiling with Colorado’s highest snowmobiling company, with miles of terrain and views of 14,000 foot mountains. The two-hour Prospector Tour is great for families with kids aged four and up.  For those seeking more of a thrill, try the single-rider Performance Tour.

You could also try the five-hour Snowmobile/Zipline tour combination! Two hours of snowmobiling followed by another two hours of ziplining with lunch included! The zipline tour starts 1,000 feet above the base and offers incredible, breath-taking views. On this tour, you will ride six lines, all 400-850 feet in length.

This is a great opportunity to add some excitement to your vacation while still being able to take in all of the beauty of your surroundings. Snowmobiles have heated handles and heaters for your feet but you will still want to dress warmly with snow gear, warm shoes, gloves, neck gaiters/scarves and goggles or sunglasses. Transportation is included. So, bundle up for the ride of your life time! Please contact your Activities Coordinators for discounts and reservations at activities@breckenridgegrandvacations.com
