In Grand County, not only do you have access to the classic Rocky Mountain adventures like hiking, biking and camping, but you also have access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences like zip lining, hot air balloons, sleigh rides and more.

Alpine Slide

On the slopes of the beautiful Winter Park Resort, feel the wind race through your hair as you go down Colorado's longest alpine slide. Winter Park's alpine slide thrill begins with a six-minute scenic chairlift ride on the Arrow. Memories of Olympic bobsledding come to mind, as you board your plastic alpine sled.


Grand County, Colorado is the perfect place to start your engines with hundreds of miles of breathtaking and exciting terrain practically made for ATV motorsports. Rent an ATV, motorcycle or OHV for the day or sign up for a guided tour through one of our knowledgable outfitters.

Backcountry Huts & Yurts

One of Colorado's quintessential wilderness experiences is a night in a backcountry hut. These free-standing dwellings — often a simple cabin, home or yurt that is only accessible via trail — are the ultimate in off-the-grid comfort.

Hot Air Ballooning

Adventure, excitement, romance. Leave your inhibitions on the ground as you peacefully soar over miles of open wilderness in your wind-guided craft. Let the wind take you where it may—each hot air balloon trip follows a unique path, dependent on the strength and direction of the wind that day.

Hot Springs & Spas

In Grand County, there are plenty of ways to relax. However, the most common relaxing retreats that visitors and locals look for are spas. We have some good news: we have them! Hot Sulphur Springs Resort & Spa is an excellent place to unwind in a soothing hot spring.

Jeep Tours

Sure, Grand County offers some of Colorado's most outstanding 360 degree views from just about everywhere, but sometimes you just have to get up there. Jeep tours are a thrill-filled way to explore the Rocky Mountains.

Sleigh & Hay Rides

What could be more memorable for the whole family than an "over the hills and through the woods" magical winter sleigh ride? How about a summery trot through fields of wildflowers and lush meadows framed by the towering peaks of the Rockies while relaxing comfortably in a bed full of hay?

Summer Tubing

Visitors and residents alike already love Grand County for its incredible winter sledding and tubing experiences, and now they’re sure to fall in love all over again with the new summer tubing hill in Granby, which opened for the fist time in summer 2015.


Whether you're looking to watch a live show or catch a popular movie, you can find what you're looking for in Grand County. Catch a musical during the summer repertory season of the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre Company or enter your child in one of the company's youth theatre workshops.

Rock Climbing

Mountaineering and rock climbing in Colorado requires not only physical strength, but also mental focus, determination, and skill. Despite these requirements, or perhaps, more accurately, because of them, mountaineering and rock climbing have become some of the most rewarding backcountry endeavors one can undertake.


There's no better place to exercise your mind, body and spirit than at one of Grand County's yoga studios. Excellent instructors and serene surroundings provide a high-altitude experience for physical and emotional nourishment, regardless of your age, strength, flexibility or experience.
