If travel is on your list, make a beeline for Leadville and Twin Lakes. You’ll find majestic natural beauty, genuine and historic mountain towns, and a welcoming community. Our high, snowy peaks, quiet forests and fresh snow will provide just the inspiration you need to kick off your year right.
2) Exercise more.
At the top of the Rockies, you’ll find plenty of fun ways to move through the great outdoors. In winter, you can downhill ski, cross-country ski or snowshoe, and fat bike. Ice skate or go sledding. Or sign up for a winter Nordic ski or fat bike race!
In warmer weather, hike, ride a bike, play golf, go whitewater rafting or paddling, and ride a horse. You’ll get a great workout at 10,000’. Stay hydrated, and let the views take your breath away.
3) Eat healthy.
Vowing to put more veggies in your diet? Don’t miss Leadville’s Golden Burro, with a fully plant-based menu. Or go for fresh salads at the Silver Llama, Silver Dollar Saloon, High Mountain Pies, and Treeline Kitchen. Choose from more salads or the famous fried brussels sprouts with sriracha sauce at Tennessee Pass Café. Have lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch at the Twin Lakes Inn & Saloon.
Combine resolutions #1 and #2 by skiing or snowshoeing to lunch or dinner at the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse, a yurt in the forest, with vegetarian menu options available.
4) Learn a new skill.
Learn to ski and snowboard at Ski Cooper (kids and adults). Take classic or skate ski lessons at Mount Massive Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trails and the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center. Follow Blue Vessel Florista for crafting workshops; learn to make flower crowns or join a men-only class to design Valentine’s bouquets.
Mark your calendar for spring, and hire Colorado Fly Fishing Guides to teach you the secrets of the perfect cast. In summer or fall, take a wilderness pack trip and guided hunt or ride in a stagecoach with Halfmoon Packing & Outfitting.
5) Find a new hobby or passion.
Ready for something new? How about dogsledding or winter ziplining? Snowmobile or ATV tours? Exploring the fascinating history of the Silver Rush and mining by visiting Leadville’s museums or touring historic Twin Lakes?
This summer, find a new favorite musician or performer at the Tabor Opera House. Take a canoe or standup paddleboard on Twin Lakes or hop a guided boat tour across the sparkling waters. Try out the Huck Finn skate park or go off-roading.
