Winter on the Mountain returns to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park
After a hiatus last winter for construction of the Glenwood Gondola, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Glenwood Springs, Colorado, celebrates the return of Winter on the Mountain. Beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, guests can take in the holiday lights, visit and take photos with Santa Claus in the North Pole and get a hug from the Coca-Cola polar bear in the Plaza, where the lighting of the Christmas tree begins at 6 p.m. The Leonard Curry Band is performing Americana, bluegrass and some holiday favorites in the Lookout Grille throughout the evening.
“There’s a strong sense of family, community spirit and even a little holiday magic in the air at the kick-off party every year,” explained general manager Nancy Heard. “The kids are excited to share their wish lists with Santa, and parents can get that perfect pic of them together in time for holiday cards. With the lights, music and festive atmosphere, it’s a very special evening.”
This family-friendly park shines all season with a display of more than a half million lights, a giant Christmas tree, fire pits for roasting s’mores and lighted rides on the Alpine Coaster. The Haunted Mine Drop, cave tours, 4D motion theater, laser tag arena and General Store are open as well.
Winter on the Mountain at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is open weekends from November 15 through Febebruary 29, 2020. The park is closed Monday through Thursday. During the holidays, it will be open daily November 15 to January 5, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
