SKI, SWIM, STAY – Colorado’s best, most affordable winter vacation deal
Fun fact, Glenwood Springs is the originator of one of the most iconic winter packages in statewide history—the Ski Swim Stay package*. This perennial favorite is still going strong, even in its middle age—yes, it’s that old esteemed! Its popularity over the years stems from the fact that it’s genuinely a good deal, especially for families with young children. The package features skiing at Sunlight Mountain Resort, admission to the world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and lodging at your choice of seven premiere establishments with rates starting at just $99 a night! Accommodations include: Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, Hotel Denver, Hotel Glenwood Springs, The Cedar Lodge, Glenwood Canyon Resort, The Brettelberg Slopeside Condominiums and the Sunlight Lodge Bed & Breakfast. One major reason this package is a winner with families is that kids 12 years and younger ski for free! Yup, you read that right.
SKI & SOAK Package
For more fire and ice fun, Slope & Soak 4-packs* are another combo that wraps up the best Glenwood Springs winter activities—geothermal goodness and downhill thrills. Slope & Soak 4-packs enable you to easily plan a Colorado ski getaway with your family or friends by offering four full-day lift tickets to Sunlight Mountain Resort and hot springs hydrotherapy at either Iron Mountain Hot Springs or the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool. This package will save you a bundle too—a $380 value, Slope & Soak 4-packs are just $279! After finishing the last run of the day, après ski with a long restorative soak. Glenwood’s hot springs amenities stay open until 10 p.m. so relax and let the hot water melt away any aches and pains.
Ski at Sunlight Mountain Resort
Both packages feature Sunlight Mountain Resort. The low-key resort is a favorite with local skiing families and in-the-know visitors. With nearly 700 skiable acres and a 2,000 vertical foot drop, Sunlight offers big skiing at an affordable price. Most of the resort’s terrain is rated as beginner and intermediate, but the East Ridge will challenge any expert. The best part of skiing at Sunlight, though, is the friendly, welcoming and unpretentious vibe.
Other things to do in the Snow in Glenwood Springs
If skiing isn’t your thing but you still want to get outdoors to play in the snow, consider creating your own, custom itinerary of things to do—think snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking and even fat-tire biking. Sunlight Mountain Resort’s Babbish Gulch features 29 kilometers of marked trails for all ability levels. For snowmobiling, make reservations at Sunlight for a guided tour into the back country.
