If you’re looking for a fun family outing in the snow, head up to Rocky Mountain National Park to the Hidden Valley area for some slip sliding fun in the snow!
Parents and kids, get ready to have a fun trip down the mountain, because the sledding slopes at Hidden Valley are awesome!
Hidden Valley was formerly a ski area that operated from 1955 to 1991, so the hills are perfect. The sledding hill is located on the ‘bunny slope’ of the former ski area, but if your kids want to, they can work up some good speed! Get out your sleds, tubes, or saucers and head on up! You have to bring your own, so if you don’t have your own, you can rent some from most of the outdoor shops in town.
On weekends when there is an attendant, a warming room is available for those who need it, as well as a restroom with flush/running water.
You might also find skiers, snowboarders and snowshoers on the different runs, however they must slow down to yield the right-of-way to sledders.
There can be lots of wind in the area, so be sure to call the RMNP information office for the latest conditions at 970-586-1333.
You’ll be sledding at over 9,200 ft elevation and you’ll need to dress warmly!
