Mountaineering Weekend at YMCA of the Rockies Brings Front Range Families Together for Fun, Educational Activities
posted by: Guest Blogger
YMCA of the Rockies will hold its 4th Annual Mountaineering Weekend from February 15-18, 2019. Whether it’s your first time out, or your family has camped in national parks many times, this special event has activities and excursions for every level.
Located just 10-minutes outside of Estes Park, on 800+ acres bordering Rocky Mountain National Park, YMCA of the Rockies offers families an easy mountain getaway without the ski crowds of I-70. During Mountaineering Weekend, guests will enjoy family snowshoe hikes in the park, winter orienteering lessons, meet and learn about search and rescue dogs, family-friendly yoga classes, ice anchor demonstrations, and the chance to explore a snow cave.
Regular YMCA of the Rockies programs will be running throughout the weekend, providing a great opportunity to check out the Craft and Design Center, rent some ice skates, or try out the new 25-foot indoor rock climbing wall.
Lodging includes lodge rooms and cabin options varying in size from 2-, 3-, or 4- bedroom vacation homes starting at $159/night. (There’s a reason Budget Travel Magazine named YMCA of the Rockies “Best Value Resort in America” last year.) Most rooms and cabins are TV-free too, providing an unplugged experience for your family, and no meal planning for mom and dad with access to the buffet-style dining hall for breakfast, lunch and dinner (for purchase).
All Mountaineering Weekend activities are free for guests staying in lodge rooms or cabins. Day passes are also available for $25/person ages 13 and up. Make your reservations today online or by calling 888-613-9622.
