Fun off-mountain activities for young kids in Summit Co.?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My family is taking our first trip west in a couple of weeks and I'm looking for ideas of what do do with the kids (5 & 3)  on non-skiing days.  We're staying at Copper and have lined up the kids activities at the base for early days and/or evenings, I'm curious if anyone has any good recommendations for a full non-ski day?

 

We'll have a car so driving is fine but not looking to drive more than an hour or so each way - I want to see Colorado, just not I-70 the whole time.  Considering checking out either Vail, just to see it, and/or Breckenridge to check out the town.  Either/both worth it?  Any good museums related to the Continental Divide or something along those lines worth checking out? 

 

Would love to hear any recommendations. Thanks!

Vail always has things to do, and it's closer than Breck. The CO Ski and Snowboard History Museum is there. I'm not sure what a 3-yr-old would think, but it's small, anyway. There is the pirate ship playground in Vail Village, but honestly I don't know if it gets covered in snow in winter, or not. The library has storytime etc. There is a small outdoor ice rink right in town, too.

 

Copper has a tubing hill, I guess you probably saw that already.

Frisco fun park tubing.

Breck is a real town. There's a hands-on kids museum called the Edwin Carter Discovery Center.
