Leave the Ski Boots Behind

After a long few days of skiing, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. If the weather is not ideal, or the whole group isn’t into the same activity, it’s good to split up and have some fun. Luckily this is the place to do it. Check out our 5 favorite activity ideas (besides skiing).

1. Ice Skating

Sometimes, icy conditions aren’t that bad. Lace up and hit our free outdoor lighted rink at the Grand Summit Hotel with family and friends. Don’t forget to pack your own skates! The skating rink is open 24/7, so you can get out and enjoy it whenever you want.

 2. Tubing

Tickets are $10 an hour and can be purchased in advance in the South Ridge Welcome Center. Participants must be at least 5 years old or 36 inches tall; we encourage guests to wear helmets.
