Making the Most of Your Colorado Vacation During “Mud Season”

The days are getting longer, temperatures warming up, the snow is starting to melt, it is springtime in Colorado! The change of seasons in Colorado from Winter to Spring is charmingly nicknamed “Mud Season”. This time of year, generally mid-April through mid-May, is when the Ski Resorts are starting to shut down and summer activities have not quite kicked off yet.

Although this tends to be Colorado’s offseason, there are many benefits to visiting this time of year. More affordable accommodations, less crowded hiking trails, and tons of open campsites.

Looking for an adventure during Mud Season? The Colorado Adventure Center has you covered! The Sky High Combo at the Idaho Springs Base Camp is the perfect activity to keep you high and dry. The Clear Creek High Tower Zip Line Course and the Colorado Sky Trek Aerial Adventure Park both open for the season in March.

Start your day cruising through a mile of zip lines high in the Rocky Mountains. Zip Line from tower to tower on eight different sections of cable. Enjoy the spring scenery zipping through the pines and over Clear Creek at speeds of 40 mph! Knowledgeable and friendly aerial guides will help your group learn the necessary skills and conquer this iconic Colorado Zip Line.

Head over to the brand-new Colorado Sky Trek to push your limits on this state-of-the-art Aerial Adventure Park. Navigate over 60 different challenging high ropes elements. The aerial park is broken up into three different levels of difficulty and seven circuits to deliver the perfect adventure for all skill levels.

Wrap your day up with a visit to historic downtown Idaho Springs. Grab a pint at one of the popular brew pubs or enjoy a fantastic meal at the variety of unique Colorado restaurants.
