Winter is upon us, and we know that we aren’t cooped up inside the whole time. While you’ve got the skis or board on, check out these awesome events. You’ll see why we love Colorado winters so much!
Starting this weekend, January 16-19th is the Estes Park Winter Festival. Come with the whole family and enjoy live music, chili contests, varieties of Colorado beer and wine, ice skating and much more! Looking for some hiking adventures in the snow?? Check out the free snowshoe demo they have on Saturday!
Can you guess where the Winter X Games are held this January 22nd-25th? “I’ll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Aspen.” Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber was close… Any who, come check out Olympian, Shaun White & local, Gretchen Bleiler showcasing their mountain skills and enjoy performers Snoop Dogg, and Wiz Khalifa!
One of Wisdom Real Estate’s favorite winter event is the Ice-Sculpting Festival in Breckenridge from January 27th- February 8th. The week prior, these incredible artists work to create their magical works of art. Vote for your favorites and dont miss the climbable/interactive sculptures. Going in the evening, after a day on the mountain, also gives a unique contrast with the dark sky and impressive white sculptures. Come check our these beautiful creations as they won’t stick around long. We hope to see you there!
The Champaign Powder mountain and Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club is hosting the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival, February 4-8th. This year at the 102nd year winter carnival, you will find horse pulled skiing for kids, the crowd favorite “donkey jump,” rodeo clowns, lighted skiing tricks and more in this wintery Wild West extravaganza!
