It’s time to say goodbye to old Man Winter. This means that you get to pack your golf shoes rather than your snowshoes; it means that you can pack your pickleball paddle instead of your parka. It’s ok to admit that you don’t ski, and best of all, when you book The Broadmoor, you don’t have to. Your favorite summer destination is now your favorite year-round adventure vacation. 

Situated at the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains, The Broadmoor offers seemingly endless ways to enjoy the best of springtime in the West. For more than 100 years, the longest-running, consecutive recipient of the Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond award has been welcoming back old friends and making new ones, not because of the typical offerings of the hotel, but because of the genuine care of its staff. Its legendary service is enhanced only by the expansiveness of the campus. The Broadmoor encompasses 5,000 acres and features an array of experiences and lodging options. The main resort includes 784 rooms, suites, cottages, and the five-suite Estate House, a historic residence built in 1928 reminiscent of the Gatsby era.

The grounds are also home to two championship golf courses, with 10 holes on the original course open during the spring months. Enjoy the nationally recognized tennis and pickleball programs indoors and weather permitting on the outdoor courts. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the mountains are your oyster!

Additional year-round recreational activities include falconry, guided mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing tours, fly fishing, paintball, and more. With miles of spectacular trails outside the backdoor, whether you want something recreational or something challenging, it’s all here for you to experience. Did you know that The Broadmoor is pet-friendly? So, don’t forget to pack Fido and your hiking boots, tie them on, and get out into the fresh mountain air to enjoy miles of nature with your four-legged friend!

The Broadmoor owns and manages three exciting attractions: Seven Falls, a magnificent series of waterfalls in a secluded canyon; The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure zip line courses, which fly adventurers over scenic, wild terrain for the ultimate adrenaline rush; and the newly reopened Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway. As featured on Good Morning America and CBS Saturday Morning, ride up America’s Mountain in style and warmth via the new trains from Switzerland. The views inspired “America the Beautiful,” how will they inspire you?

Perhaps your après activities are more relaxation and decompression focused. Book a treatment or two in the Forbes Five-Star spa and fitness center. There’s also plenty to choose from for shopping and dining, with 19 curated retail boutiques and renowned cuisine showcased in a multitude of restaurants, cafés, and lounges.

The Broadmoor is easily accessible for guests via Houston or Dallas with a one-stop flight directly into Colorado Springs Airport, only a 15-minute drive from the resort.
