These bumper cars have been around for a few years now and are available at several locations in Colorado. Originally started by an employee of a Steamboat Springs ice arena, they have become popular and now have franchises in many states.
These cars are designed for the ice and are made by a company called IBC International. They have been a hit at various rinks in the state and are now available at Cornerstone Ice Arena as well.
2. Escape Room
Escape rooms are a great way to get out of the house and enjoy some fun, interactive activities. They are great for families, friends, co-workers and tourists.
An escape room is a game where teams are trapped in a room and must work together to find clues and solve puzzles to complete the game within 60 minutes. It is a great team-building activity that will help you develop problem-solving skills, logic, and patience.
Steamboat Springs is home to many fun Escape Games that offer a variety of themes and challenge levels. From horror and heists to detective-themed adventures, there is something for everyone.
3. Strawberry Hot Springs
After a day of skiing on the mountain or hiking through the national forest, there’s no better way to relax than with a soak in the hot springs. The natural mineral pools at Strawberry Park, just outside of town, are surrounded by gorgeous scenery and offer therapeutic soaking year-round.
A short drive from Steamboat Springs, the springs are a must-see during any winter vacation in Colorado. The geothermal hot springs are nestled deep in the forest next to Hot Springs Creek, and are a popular stop for hikers.
The hot springs have been open for over 100 years and feature four different outdoor natural mineral pools that reach up to 104 degrees. The springs deliver 220 gallons of 102-103-degree water out of the ground per minute to feed these mineral pools.
4. Sleigh Ride
Sleigh rides are one of the best ways to enjoy winter, especially if you’re dealing with seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Taking a sleigh ride can help you stay out of the dark and cold and get some vitamin D.
The first thing you need to do is make sure you are dressed warmly and listen to all the rules that are posted on the sleigh. This will ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable ride.
Sleigh rides are also a great way to spend time with friends and family. You can take a romantic ride through the snow with your significant other or even with your children.
5. Dog Sledding
Dog Sledding is a unique and fun winter activity. You can drive your own team of sled dogs or go on an adventure with a professional musher!
You can take part in this unique winter activity year-round, but it is most popular during the winter. Steamboat Springs is home to many sled dog kennels and tour operators.
Sled dogs are a highly intelligent and well-trained pack that is responsive to voice commands. Their bonded relationship with their mushers ensures their safety and unity.
They’re also known for their innate sense of direction. If you’re thrown off course, their instinct will help them find their way back to the trail.
