Yes, it’s the season of picnics, outdoor Shakespeare plays, bike rides on the Boulder Creek path, hikes up Mt. Sanitas, concerts at Chautauqua, and al fresco dining on the Pearl Street Mall.
But this journalist is thinking winter for an article featuring great things for visitors (or even residents) to do in Boulder, Colorado, when the weather is snowy.
Now’s your chance to put on your thinking caps (and mittens) and nominate some of the cold-weather wonders found in Boulder.
I’m open to all suggestions, but here are some ideas to get the juices flowing about your favorite:
- comfort-food restaurant
- trail for winter hiking or snow-shoeing
- cross-country ski trail
- sledding hill
- skating rink
- après ski happy hour
- warm, cozy hotel or B&B
- cultural event
- yoga studio
- indoor rock-climbing gym
- place to curl up with a good book
- view of the snow-dusted Flatirons
- cup of steaming coffee or tea
- decadent dessert
- people-watching spot
- local museum
Brrr…I’m getting chilly just thinking about it!
