American Mountaineering Center

This is a great place to hold an event. I have hosted two large events here, one a celebration and one a fundraiser. Both were successes. Great space, good adjustable lighting, clean, lots of parking and well run. Easy to access, both from a driving perspective and getting your supplies into the event space. Having the American Alpine Club, The Colorado Mountain Club and the Colorado Trail in the building is a bonus and gave our events additional character. For outdoor people, the museum, displays, and library are fantastic. I highly recommend the venue. As we were taking down from my last event a wedding party was setting-up . By the time I left, they were already in full swing and having a fabulous party. They also made a great choice.

Great community recreation center. Friendly staff, nice facilities, accessible by the Lift bus and offering a diverse set of workout, climb and swim options at a reasonable price.


Nederland Mining Museum

What a gem of a museum! Susan walked us around and had some great history and a love of mining to share. If you happen to be in Nederland when it is open, it’s worth the stop! Don’t forget to see the last Bucyrus Erie steam shovel that helped dig the Panama Canal!


Headwaters River Journey

Great little museum that is very informative about ecology and conservation of rivers in CO. Lots of hands-on, high-tech interactive exhibits that my 12, 8 and 5 yr olds loved! It looks like it would be a classy venue as well. We took a quick little walk on the Fraser River Trail afterwards. Recommended!


Elizabeth Kurtak Art Gallery and Fraser Ski Gardens

Great selection of thrifty items & clothes. Lovely original local art & paintings


Blue River State Wildlife Area Eagles Nest Unit

Great fishing spot with deep pools and pocket water. The water runs fast so better for late summer fishing but there is enough structure for trout to rise to dries in the early summer as well.



I loved exploring Uptripping and all the things they had in their shop. There was plenty of furniture throughout, as well as wall art to buy. It’s on the main drag in Winter Park but is a bit hard to find. But it’s definitely worth making a bit of effort to find. It’s a great place to find furnishings and art for your second home in the mountains, or something to take back with you wherever you’re from. I make it a point to stop here when I’m in town because there’s always something new to find and get inspired by.
