Ways to Cool Down During Colorado’s Summer

Our team at Corken+Company wanted to give you a way to beat the heat by savoring refreshing Colorado! Here are 10 of the best local summer activities to help you cool down.

Never Summer Mountains

Home to pockets of snow regardless of season, this range west of Fort Collins is a hikeable wonderland where you can spot moose and rare high-altitude bogs.


Summer Chairlift Rides

Many of our 28 ski resorts offer warm-weather jaunts for views of lush valleys, stunning peaks as well as mountain hamlets.

Summer Tubing

Soar down engineered tubing slopes year-round at places like Snow Mountain Ranch (Winter Park) and Vail Epic Discovery.

Never Summer Brewing Co., Granby

An icy craft beer from a brewery whose name conjures snowflakes and sleigh rides will set you straight.

Summer Skiing, Arapahoe Basin & Loveland Ski Areas

Strap on your skis and swish through slushy goodness, oftentimes well into June, at both resorts.

The Inventing Room Dessert Shop, Denver

Liquid-nitrogen-fueled, exploding whipped cream tops rich in addition to frozen hot chocolate. Need we say more?

Upslope Brewing Company, Boulder

Crack open Spiked Snowmelt Seltzer to release the refreshing flavors of glacial juniper and lime.

Dog Sledding, Breckenridge

Board a cart for a guided springtime trip, as conditions allow — after mandatory husky “hello” smooches, of course.

Ice Skating, Pueblo Ice Arena

Glide across the ice and live out your fantasies of starring in the 1992 epic “The Cutting Edge.”

Snowshoe, Skyscraper Glacier

Let your snowshoes lead the way to a magical place where the sky kisses the summit near Winter Park.
