It may be spring in the valley, but winter still reigns supreme across much of Colorado.
Not tired of snow? Consider a trip to Frisco Adventure Park’s tubing area, two-and-a-half hours east along the I-70 corridor.
Located in — you guessed it — Frisco, Colo., the park is also nearby Breckenridge Ski Resort, Keystone Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Resort, and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area. Plan a weekend snow-venture or a one-day drive — there’s plenty to do either way.
Open for its third season, the Frisco Adventure Park features six 1,200-foot tubing lanes, with a magic-carpet ride up to the top. All lanes are groomed daily, have varying heights and designs for speed and ride style, and are managed by an attentive (and cheerful) staff.
According to Town of Frisco marketing and communications director Vanessa Agee, reservations are recommended for the tubing area, especially during peak-season times like holidays, spring break and weekends.
“Volume tends to vary,” Agee said.
For an hour of tubing, it’s $25, or a little more during the holiday season. An additional hour of tubing can be reserved for another $10.
“You’ll see gaggles of teenagers doing it for two hours,” Agee explained.
Plus, rides can be customized — tubers can go solo, or in groups of two, three or four.
“Ask if you want to spin,” Agee added.
After you tube, head to the day lodge for steaming hot chocolate and a snack, bathrooms and seating.
NOT JUST TUBING
The Frisco Adventure Park also boasts a beginner ski and ride area, with lesson instruction provided by Copper Mountain Resort.
Other winter activities at the park include an extensive Nordic trail system through the Peninsula Recreation Area and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Summer activities include a bike park, hiking, mountain-bike trails, and access to the day lodge.
