If you prefer more leisurely snow activities, building snowmen, sledding or snowball fights can also be great ways to spend time outdoors in the winter at locations like Dry Creek Community Park, Garden Acres Park or Sunset Middle School.
Head out to St. Vrain State Park to do some ice fishing, and take advantage of the premier ice fishing ponds at this Colorado State Park.
The ice continues at the Longmont Ice Pavilion. Open for public skating every day of the week at select times, the pavilion is a wonderful place to lace up your skates and enjoy the winter wonderland.
If you are looking for a more extreme winter adventure, check out CO Wilderness Rides and Guides based in Gunbarrel. Staying in Longmont, you can adventure up into the high-country on winter day trips!
