We love Spring Break at YMCA of the Rockies! We’ve still got plenty of snow, but we have lots of sunshine and great temps for being outside enjoying some time away from school and work.
At Estes Park Center, we’re channeling our island spirits with some Hawaiian-themed events to celebrate Spring Break. Check out these events and see if you can fit them into a last minute trip to the Y:
Create and erupt your own mini apple-cano’s and figure out just why they erupt the way they do!
Come and join in the fun of Hawaiian-themed lawn games! Some include Beach Ball Relay Race, Coconut Bowling and Human Ring Toss!
Create a wave in a bottle while learning the different densities of varying liquids.
Come and join in at our YMCA of the Rockies Spring Break Luau. Wear your best Hawaiian shirt to participate in games, music and fun!
Visit our events page for a complete listing of everything that is available! Plus, all of our regularly featured activities will also be taking place, so you’ll find something to do for everyone! Book your Spring Break getaway soon!
At Snow Mountain Ranch the snow is still great for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and tubing. For those seeking new adventures, the Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center now offers an introduction to Alpine Touring. This new ski program is geared toward those who want to learn the basic skills needed to have a great day touring the back country. We will focus on how to use modern Alpine Touring equipment, and touch upon the basic principles of how to use an avalanche beacon, shovel and probe. This program is perfect for those who have always wanted to see what it’s like to ski on their own outside of the resort.
On March 24-26, join us for the Winter Festival at Snow Mountain Ranch. Winter enthusiasts and Nordic sport lovers of all ages and abilities can enjoy Nordic Center events and activities featuring snowshoeing, fat biking and Nordic skiing. Free one-hour demos of all snowshoes, skin skis, back country skis and fat bikes will be available.
