Terrain Parks - Colorado Springs

Rider's Guide

If you're looking for a budget option when you're ready to ski in Colorado, consider Colorado Springs. While it's not as close to the big snow as some other cities, it is close enough that you can lodge there and head to places like Monarch Mountain and even world-class ski resorts like Aspen Snowmass, Vail, and Beaver Creek without spending too much time on the road.

Parks and Pipes

Monarch Mountain is the closest ski resort and it's also known for being the least expensive in the area, so you can enjoy the slopes and the main terrain features and then enjoy the city of Colorado Springs—all without breaking your budget. Among the many different ski resorts in this Colorado ski heaven, you'll find dozens of boxes, rails, jumps, half-pipes, quarter pipes, and massive superpipes with 18-foot walls. Almost every resort that offers a terrain park has a beginner area and one just for kids who want to learn, as well as intermediate and advanced jibs and rails for extreme riders.

Out of Bounds

Enjoy Pike's Peak when you're in Colorado Springs, tour the Olympic Training Center, take a walk or horse back ride through Garden of the Gods Park. Seven Falls is a scenic hike, right there for you to enjoy. The area is full of great winter sports like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snow tubing, sleigh rides, and ice skating.

Hangout & Hookup

Though it's a bit of a drive from a ski resort, the town has a ski resort sensibility and they understand that people come for the peaks and the snow. Wines, liquors, locally brewed beers, snacks, pub fare, and international dining, as well as live entertainment area all part of the Colorado Springs experience. Check out The Golden Bee at The Broadmoor for a one of the kind atmosphere with a piano and sing-along crowd and the servers throw little bees at you that stick to your clothes and drinks! Sonterra is an excellent choice drinks and food, as well as top sushi at Fugiyama. The area is home to  several breweries including Bristol Brewery, Phantom Canyon Brewing Company, Trinity, and Colorado Mountain Brewery, to name a few.
