Everybody has different winter activities they prefer. Some like to spend all their time outdoors skiing, snowboarding, tubing or partaking in other winter sport activities. Others like to sit back and relax while taking advantage of the wintery weather without straining themselves.

 

While most winter resorts focus on the winter sports clientele, The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is the perfect escape for winter lovers who want to sit by a fire, indulge in delicious food, relax at the spa and more. With 784 guestrooms, suites, cottages and more, there is plenty of room for winter vacationers.

 

If you want to spend time outdoors, The Broadmoor offers an array of activities in addition to skiing and snowboarding. Guests can take out the resort’s Fat Bikes, high-end bikes designed for the winter and snow, to explore the resort and surrounding areas. If you are more into hiking or rock climbing, The Broadmoor can arrange for travelers to experience the best of both. For families looking for a bit of friendly competition, develop your skills by trying archery, tomahawks and pellet guns. Lastly, for more thrill-seeking travelers, The Broadmoor’s Seven Falls offers a zip lining experience that will take your breath away.

The cold isn’t for everyone, so The Broadmoor offers plenty of indoor activities, as well. Head to The Spa at The Broadmoor for its internationally known innovative services and unique approach to health and relaxation. Next, head to Portales Library, one of the coziest places on property and one of the best spots to relax and read a bestseller or enjoy a children’s book with your kids. Other indoor activities include a bowling alley, tennis and pickleball, video games and more.
