Why We Love Holidays in Estes Park

Top 3 Reasons Why We Love Holidays in Estes Park, CO

Upping the charm for the holidays, lights are strung across downtown giving window shoppers that quaint Colorado town feel. The dusting of snow across the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park sets a beautiful backdrop.
Crisp air and Colorado sun most mornings make for epic hiking, snowshoeing, horseback riding and photography. There are many reasons to love winter and the holiday season in Estes Park. Here are our top 3!

1. Cheer Spreads in this Small Mountain Town

The holiday atmosphere is contagious, especially Thanksgiving weekend. Even visitors can enjoy a traditional family meal or friends-giving at local restaurants or in the comfort of their mountain home away from home. The following day, the town makes everyone feel like family with the Catch the Glow Event & Parade where people line the streets to watch festive floats, dancers and music. Opt outside the next day to make a complete holiday weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park; creating new memories as a family and finding what you love most about Estes together!

2. Winter Here is What Work Daydreams are Made Of

Winter takes over Estes Park and transforms the town into a peaceful solitary place. It’s the winter wonderland that we dream of when we are in the midst of a work week rut. Snow grazes the mountains and whisks the trees. Elk, deer and other wildlife stroll the land in town and in Rocky Mountain National Park; reminding us that it is their home first. We find ourselves often as the only people in sight. Outdoor adventures seem more grand. When we make it back to the condo, watching the stars from the hot tub or having hot chocolate by the fire perfectly completes any day.

3. No Ski Resort Means More Adventure-Making

Estes Park is not a ski resort town and that is one of our favorite parts. We don’t have to sit in traffic to go play in the snow or have the “mountain experience.” We believe our mountain experience is better, more adventurous and best of
all zero stress! Backcountry skiing is renowned in Estes for those who want to blaze new trails. For wild adventurers, there is even ice climbing lessons available! Snowshoeing treks give a whole new perspective to Rocky Mountain trails, such as Wild Basin and Bear Lake. Snowcat tours, winter Jeep tours and educational bus tours are a great way to warmly explore the winter ecosystem in the National Park. Or take the extra time, that we don’t have to stand in ski lines, to learn something new such as ice fishing or ice skating.
