A Reason to Visit: Winter Specials
Happy New Year! We hope that 2009 is off to a good start for you and your family.
There are a lot of things to look forward to this year...the 60th annual Ski Joring competition will take place March 7-8, along with a family-oriented Crystal Carnival. We'll
be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Colorado Gold Rush all summer. And right
now, the snow is incredible no matter how you enjoy it: on skis or snowshoes, building
a snowman, or curled up inside by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa!
This is a great time to visit. Check out our new blog to learn about upcoming events, deals and specials.
Everything that is Colorado is right here...shouldn't you be here, too?
HIGH-COUNTRY RECREATION AT ITS BEST
Leadville and Twin Lakes are winter playgrounds for powderhounds and sledders. With more than 35,000 acres of snow-covered wilderness crisscrossed by miles and miles of trails, you can spend days and days exploring some of the most beautiful terrain in the state. Make a long weekend out of it and spend one day at Ski Cooper, one day on a snowmobile and one day on snowshoes. Call or stop by the Lake County Visitor Center for trail maps and information about rental equipment. Please use trails safely:
don't go out into the wilderness alone; make sure someone knows where you're headed
and when you're planning to return.

P.S. Did you know that more gold was found in Leadville during the gold rush than
at any other Colorado site?
