Winter on the Mountain

Winter on the Mountain at Glenwood Caverns

The mountain-top Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, CO, is dazzling visitors this winter with thousands of lights, holiday music and much more. Welcome winter and the holiday season with Winter on the Mountain beginning November 12, 2021. America’s only mountain-top theme park will continue to spread holiday cheer—Colorado-style—with a festive roster of holiday music, a giant musical Christmas tree, delicious seasonal beverages, firepits for roasting marshmallows and more.

Winter on the MountainThe focus of our annual Winter on the Mountain is family-friendly fun while keeping the community in mind. We encourage everyone to dress as if you are ready to ski, so bundle up and enjoy the great outdoors on the mountain. At our Winter on the Mountain kickoff party on Nov. 20, you can enjoy our most popular ride, the Alpine Coaster (open until 7 p.m.), dazzling holiday light displays throughout the park and our giant musical Christmas tree with a light show choreographed to holiday music! Winter on the Mountain continues through January 2022. Hours vary throughout the winter season. Check our online calendar for information and park hours.
