Though it’s little, February is fierce! If you’re not already racing to the mountains to enjoy our latest fill of fresh powder and blue sky days, we’re here to give you winter-filled alternatives to shredding the gnar.
Sure the weather is chilly (finally), but February is not the time to Netflix the days away. It is, however, the perfect season to Instagram your snow day adventures and warm your body and soul with hot toddies. Plus, we’re in luck because Denver is filled with festivals, conventions, concerts, and more. Of course, if we’re missing a “must go to” event of the month, let us know so we can share it!
