The new Snowmass grounds will have free outdoor ice skating.

$120 crepes

Try a $120 crepe. That's not a typo. But if you can't swing that, the Crepe Shack has crepes that cost $8, $9 or $10. But if there IS some money burning a hole in your pocket, try the caviar crepe with Maine salmon for $120.

Get a doughnut (and something stronger)

Check out Colorado's tallest climbing wall

Inside the new Limelight, you'll find Colorado's tallest indoor climbing wall. It stretches five stories right at the front entrance. 

The wall has a granite-like surface that mirrors real rock walls near Snowmass, including the popular grotto area near Independence Pass. 

Boulder-based Eldorado Climbing Walls designed the structure.

Play 1980s video games

The Limelight also has a kids gaming lounge. There are toys, classic '80s video games and more modern gaming consoles to give the kids (or kids-at-heart) something to do (other than ski).
