Buena Vista, Colorado Mountain Activities & Recreation

There is so much to do in the beautiful town of Buena Vista, you might have to extend your vacation, or actually move here, to experience it all.

Every season holds a wealth of adventure. Spring and summer months bring festivals, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, the smells of campfires and the aspens unfurling their bright green leaves for those brave enough to adventure down the Arkansas River.

Winter brings up to 400 inches of snow in the high lands, while Buena Vista itself enjoys the mild weather of a protected valley. World-famous slopes a short drive away beg to be carved up for the first time on skiis, a snowboard, on snowshoes or a snowmobile. Fall will have you stopping your car in awe of the magnificent blanket of oranges and golds which the staggering peaks wear with caps of icy white. And through every season are the hot springs bubbling up pure relaxation from beneath the earth.

Set on which season will see you arriving in Buena Vista? Select from summer or winter recreation, and delve further into what this mountain town has to offer.
