Spring Break in the Rockies
February always feels like we are turning a corner and progressing towards spring. The days are a little longer and warmer, the birds and the moose increase their activity levels and it is much more pleasant to be outside. Despite reports of low snow measurements this season, the Sky-Hi News, our local county newspaper, just published an article saying that the Upper Colorado Basin is at 102% of average snow levels which is great news. There is still plenty of snow to play in.
March is often a high snowfall month so perhaps we will get big snows! Either way, March is a great time to come visit Grand County and Rocky Mountain National Park. All the winter activities are still available and days can be beautiful. Consider trying your hand at Ice-Fishing, Sledding, Sleigh Rides, Cross Country Skiing, Snowmobiling, Ice-Skating, watch for moose, scan open water at the channel and do some Bird Watching and more. Finish it all up with a great soak at Hot Sulphur Springs, just 35 minutes away from the Rapids Lodge.
The Rapids has historically been closed for the month of April but this year our lodging will be open. This means we are a great hotel for Spring Break in Grand Lake, Colorado! Our off-season rates for a one bedroom unit with full kitchen, perfect for a family, start at just $125 per night. Some Rapids Suites are pet-friendly too. We have the widest variety of accommodation in Grand Lake, there is something for everybody! The Rapids is just 20 minutes from the family-friendly ski resort of Granby Ranch and 45 minutes from the more challenging Winter Park Resort. If you don’t want to downhill ski every day, there is plenty to do and you can enjoy time away from the crowds.
Don’t forget to plan for Memorial Day Weekend in May. Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park usually opens for this holiday weekend. Enjoy your 3 day weekend in one of Colorado’s most beautiful locations!
