If you’re like most families spending time in Crested Butte this winter, you came to ski. Whether your kids are going out with you or joining a lesson packed day of ski school, they are bound to want a break. It’s winter and there is so much to do! With these three winter activities for kids, you won’t have to question if they are having fun this winter vacation.
Try asking your kids to hike up a hill and you may get a lot of pushback. But, ask them to climb up a hill with a sled to ride down and you will be watching for hours. Grab a sled and head down to the Big Mine Park located next to the Crested Butte Nordic Center. It is here that the most perfect sledding hill awaits a day packed with smiles and laughter.
Skating around on some ice is a great way for your kids to stay active on a day off from skiing and maybe even try something new! You can find public skating and rentals at the Crested Butte Nordic Center and twirl around at the indoor rink. There are also plastic assists if you are feeling nervous.
Located at the base of the resort, the Crested Butte Adventure Center is the perfect place for your kiddos to burn some energy. It offers trampolines and a rock climbing wall. Also conveniently located beside the Butte 66 Restaurant, you can grab a drink or some food while watching your kids play, climb, and bounce around.
