5. Ice Skating

The Grand Colorado on Peak 8 Ice Rink is located steps away from the slopes of Peak 8. This outdoor public ice skating rink is family-friendly fun for the young and young at heart. Take in magnificent countywide mountain vistas and warm up between laps by the fire with hot drinks and refreshments from Ullr Café just steps away from the rink. Skates and helmets are available for rent at the walk-up window.

6. Ice Castles

The Silverthorne Ice Castles are back for the winter! The ice castles are built with over 25 tons of ice! Hundreds of thousands of icicles are hand placed by professional ice artists and lit with LED lights carefully placed inside the icicles. Within the ice castles you will find frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, ice slides, and fountains made out of ice.

7. Snow Tubing

The Frisco Adventure Park snow tubing hill is open for the winter! Grab the family and friends and head to the snow tubing hill to enjoy various lanes of tubing. Each lane has a different experience — some are narrow, some are steeper, and some even have rolling hills to add a little thrill! Reservations are required.
