Winter Park Colorado Hot Air Balloon Rides is a household name in the hot-air balloon space, offering excellent year-round excursions. The tour takes you past famous Colorado landmarks, including Rocky Mountain National Park, the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and the mesmerizing Continental Divide.

Hideaway Park is Winter Park’s one-stop spot for a riveting outdoor adventure. During winter, the park’s slopes convert into a snow-covered expanse, creating a gorgeous setting for numerous activities. Rent a fat bike and shred through the park’s snowy trails as you explore the powdery trails. Grab your fishing rods and unleash your inner angler on one of Grand County’s lakes that teem with Rocky Mountain trout. The park also serves as a favorite hunting spot, with pronghorn, deer, and elk all available during winter.

Grand Adventures offers high-end snowmobile rentals in four locations, including Winter Park Mountain Lodge. Take a two-hour guided tour to the Continental Divide or book a self-guided excursion and enjoy a one-hour, two-hour, or three-hour experience as you explore the expansive Winter Park landscape. The tours take you to heights of up to 12,000 feet, giving you unique views of the beautiful Colorado countryside. Whether new to the snowmobiling game or a seasoned rider, Grand Adventures has tour packages to suit your skill level.
Moffat Tunnel dates back to 1928, when it served as a shorter transportation line, uniting the eastern and western sides of the Rockies. Today, Moffat Tunnel offers access to several attractions, including five scenic trails inside James Peak. The Eastern Portal features a massive recreation area with ice climbing, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, and snowmobiling. You can also visit the five remaining camp cabins at the bottom of James Peak Trail and view where the rail workers lodged as they constructed the tunnel. Visiting Moffat Tunnel is free, and the area allows for dogs, meaning you can tag your beloved pawed pal for the experience.
