So Valentine's Day is less than a week away and you're contemplating the idea of surprising your beloved by taking them someplace special. You're thinking someplace perhaps a little different than previous Valentine's Days; a place that's just a little out of the ordinary to celebrate the holiday. Well your timing couldn't be more perfect as the weather in February provides the perfect backdrop for you to explore some enjoyable, adventurous and even ‘romantic' winter activities.
Nothing beats the ambiance of an outdoor ice rink if you're looking for wintertime fun. The Cube ice skating rink at the new shops at Southglenn and the Rink at Belmar are still open through the end of February for outdoor ice skating. If you've never been ice skating or need to brush up on those rusty ice skating skills, these rinks are just the place to do it. Be sure to contact the rinks directly for more information.
How about heading to the hills this weekend? Colorado is home to so many ski resorts it's unthinkable to not experience at least one this ski season. With an assortment of outdoor activities available to choose from such as skiing, snowboarding and tubing, you'll be sure to find one that fits your personal tastes and match your desired level of adventure. If you're new to skiing and riding or just lacking in the experience arena, learning to navigate the slopes is easy and group and private lessons are always available. For 24 hour snow conditions, weather updates and terrain status reports for the Front Range, log on to Colorado Ski Country USA or Snow.com. You can even follow resorts such as Vail, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge on Facebook and Twitter for weekly deals, activities and upcoming events.
If you're like most Coloradans you probably got spoiled with the beautiful weather and warm temperatures we've been enjoying in the last few weeks, but Mother Nature definitely had other plans for us when she choose to drop a few inches of fresh snow on us this week. Instead of complaining about the snow and frigid temperatures, why not head outside and enjoying some of what wintertime in Colorado is all about.
