TRIPS and ADVENTURES
April 1 – Spring Skiing at Vail Here we go again! We’ve been trying to get to Vail all season, but weather and Wing inspections have kept us away from one of the largest ski resorts in the world. With more than 5,200 acres of developed ski and snowboard terrain, seven legendary Back Bowls spanning seven miles, and the most groomed terrain on the planet, Vail has been an extraordinary winter vacation destination for passionate skiers and snowboarders for more than 50 years. $65 gets you a seat on the bus, rentals, and a lift pass.
April 1 – April Fool’s Day Cross Country Snowboarding Trip You’ve asked for it and we plan to deliver with our first ever cross country snowboarding trip! For only $15 we’ll provide the rental gear, transportation, and fees. This program is open to all ages however, participants need to be in excellent physical shape.
April 2 – Horseback Rides Join us at our Estes Park Stables location for miles of horseback riding on private trails on a 1000-acre cattle ranch. This is the perfect way to explore this remarkable area as the pioneers did. Along the trail you’ll enjoy views of the surrounding mountains (some frosted with snow), thickly forested slopes, pristine mountain streams, and Lake Estes down below. You may also see animals such as coyotes, elk, deer, longhorn cattle, and “Bob” the bobcat grazing on the ranch. The Estes Park Stables location was the first Sombrero Ranch location in the area. Its convenient location makes it easy to slip into the saddle and ride off into the wild country along scenic trails. Includes transportation, trail ride and gear. Bring money for lunch, homemade ice cream and a quick visit to the shops in Estes on the way home. Fee is $35 and priority goes to Active Duty and dependents.
April 8 – National Beer Day On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, in the United States. (We are celebrating a day late). One of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, beer possibly dates back to 9500 BC when cereal was first farmed. It is recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage. Following water and tea, it is the third most popular drink overall. Join us for a few select breweries in the Denver Beer Triangle for only $15.
April 9 – Rocky Mountain Hiking Trip (Weather Permitting) Over 415 square miles of protected mountain terrain with a huge network of hiking trails & wildlife. Start getting in hiking shape! As you plan your hike, keep in mind that park elevations range from 7,500 to over 12,000 feet. Even very fit individuals coming from lower elevations may experience altitude problems. We will be exploring 5+ mile trails at Rocky Mountain National Park full of streams, falls and hopefully some amazing wildlife. Bring your camera and lunch. This trip is not suitable for young children. Fee is $15.
April 22 – Genesee Experiential Challenge Course The Genesee Challenge Course is set in a beautiful stand of Ponderosa Pines overlooking the continental divide. There are roughly 60 low and high elements that creates a program specifically designed to achieve your group’s goals. Ropes course advocates claim that they meet a number of educational, developmental, and recreational goals. High ropes course and climbing programs generally focus on personal achievements and ask participants to confront their personal fears and anxieties. Challenges may be physical and/or emotional. In certain cases, high element programs involve the development and mastery of technical skills to manage rope belay systems used to secure other climbers as they move through the course. In such cases, outcomes often include exploring the fundamentals of trust, craftsmanship, and coaching. Programs using low ropes course elements or group initiatives are most often designed to explore group interaction, problem-solving, and leadership. Some of the commonly claimed outcomes include enhancement of cooperation, decision making, self-confidence, positive risk taking, social cohesion, trust, self-esteem, leadership, goal setting, and teamwork. Cost is $10 per person.
April 27 – 30 – Moab Adventure Moab has some of the most interesting and unique terrain of any mountain biking destination. The riding here tends to lean towards challenging to extremely challenging with big descents, rocky trails with big technical moves, and many long epic rides to choose from. A classic example is the famous Slickrock trail which is a multiple hour mountain bike ride ENTIRELY on smooth rock that makes you feel as if you’re riding on the moon! Explore the beautiful scenery around Arches National Park. Bring your own bike or take one of ours. Priority goes to Single Airmen and Active Duty and spouses. Bring your camera, hiking shoes and bike gear for two solid days of some of the best trails in the country! There are a variety of trails for all skill levels in this area.

RV Storage Lot Help Needed
RV storage lot patrons are reminded to conspicuously display their lot identification card on their items stored. If that lot card has been misplaced, patrons may obtain another at Outdoor Recreation. When you return your RV to the storage lot at the end of the season, be sure you re-display your lot id card and park in the lot assigned to you. We currently have several items parked in someone else’s site and are working to remedy the situation. When a patron parks in a site not assigned to them, it creates a domino effect of misplaced vehicles.
