The Activities

  • Snow Tubing takes place on a four-lane tubing hill that's fun for all ages and covered in real snow! Zoom down the lanes, race to the bottom, and enjoy unlimited runs on your ticket date.
  • Suppose you like bumper cars, experience the thrill of driving them on ice! Slide, spin, and bump your friends and family as you zoom around on Ice Bumper Cars.
  • Enjoy a perfect day or evening under the stars by going on a yuletide glide on Gaylord's outdoor Ice Skating rink made with real ice.
  • Hop on the family-friendly Snow Merry-Go-Round, complete with individual tubs perfect for young kids looking for a speedy ride.
  • Wander the grounds as you explore LIGHT!, an outdoor light exhibit. Inspired by the high gusts across the Mile High City, LIGHT! is an artistic take on the wind and its effect on Colorado's landscapes. The beauty is revealed in the ever-changing art formed by nature's fury's influence and power. Because Mother Nature is the designer, each installation is continually evolving, never appearing the same way twice.
  • Cozy up for a fireside S'mores Kit that will leave you feeling extra sweet this winter season.
