The Colorado Snowsports Museum

While this museum focuses mainly on the sports Colorado influences, it also, in many ways, details the history of skiing itself. Its shelves and walls are packed with more than 1,500 photos and artifacts touching upon Olympic and World Cup events, Colorado's famed 10th Mountain Division, and even the recent evolution of snowboarding. Gazing at photos of the Vail Valley when it was nothing but a sheep farm in the late 1950s will make you yearn for the gift of foresight. See website for visitor info, event calendar, online gift shop, Hall of Fame details and more.

Nottingham Lake

Right smack dab in the middle of Avon sits Nottingham Lake. The area plays host to a number of outdoor activities such as jogging, hockey, ice skating, and broomball. In the summer when the water melts, Nottingham Lake is a great destination for fishing, paddleboats, and jogging. Annually the lake hosts the Dunk-N-Dash, where racers must swim across the lake and then continue around the shore on a 5k run.

Evergreen Cemetery

Led by local historian Neil Reynolds, who dresses in a long black cape and a top hat so as to resemble something out of an Edgar Allen Poe short story, this tour creeps through Leadville's famed Evergreen Cemetery. The tour pauses before gravestones as Reynolds dispenses tales about some of those who are buried, including John W. Booth, the alleged cousin of Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Keep a keen eye out for the strange blue lights that haunt the cemetery, or for the bronze elk statue whose head has been reported to turn. Admission is USD10.
