AERIAL ADVENTURE PARK
More thrilling than a zip line, more exhilarating than an alpine slide—Winter Park Adventure Quest's two-story aerial adventure park/ropes course is a blast for weekend warriors, ninja warrior kids, or kids at heart. Climbers hook into a state-of-the-art belay system that allows you to freely explore and play on 24 separate obstacles all set against a stunning mountain backdrop. Our course is for everyone—from a friendly lower level to a jaw-dropping second story, you choose your level of challenge.
Your reservation allows for a full 90 minutes of course time. We ask you to arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled time. You’ll be given a brief safety orientation and get familiar with your gear, and then you’ll hit the course and start making memories.
GUIDED ROCK CLIMBING TOURS
Winter Park Adventure Quest is the only permitted rock climbing guide service in the Winter Park area, offering half-day guided rock climbing trips just minutes away in the Arapaho National Forest. Why climb? It's a beautiful way to experience the Colorado outdoors. You'll challenge yourself, gain new skills, resilience— and muscle.
Never climbed? No problem. Our experienced guides can cater to beginners or more experienced climbers. You'll start your 3-hour adventure with a trip into the national forest to one of our climbing sites, home to 45-foot rock outcroppings. All equipment is provided, and you'll get familiar with your gear and learn basic belaying, rappelling, knotcraft and climbing technique. Then it's time to hit the rock. Climbers choose routes to fit their comfort level, from friendly 5.5s to challenging 5.11s, taking turns climbing and belaying. You'll finish your adventure with a snack and a creek-chilled beverage.
Winter Park Adventure Quest's guided rock climbing trips are great for a gym climber ready to experience real rock, a high-adrenaline date, a team-building experience, or an adventure for the whole family—climbing trips are a great fit for kids as young as 5 and up.
GUIDED HIKES AT INDIAN PEAKS
Enjoy the best of the best when it comes to getting out there and spending time in the back-country of the Rocky Mountains. The hike to Columbine Lake will take you through dense spruce-fir forests into subalpine stands and finally the stunning views of the lake and Indian Peaks. Our experienced Guides’ priority is having a safe, fun and informative tour that connects you more to where you are visiting. We hike in small groups which is recommended for safety to reduce wildlife encounters. Hiking time is between three and five hours, which includes an alpine picnic lunch. Please note that you must have sturdy footwear and we recommend dressing in layers to adapt to constant weather changes.
WILDERNESS SURVIVAL COURSE
You’re lost in the Colorado Rockies. What could you do with an old soda can, your t-shirt and a piece of parachute cord? How about start a fire, purify water, and belay yourself safely across a ravine… and that’s just for starters. This three-hour course gives participants hands-on education in basic wilderness survival including navigation, shelter building, fire starting, edible plants and more. Cooperative projects like shelter building and rappelling create opportunities for strategy, consensus building and team bonding. Great for small corporate groups, families, guys/girls getaways and bridal parties.
After your climb, head back to the shop for a cold drink and a snack while taking in the incredible mountain views. Winter Park Adventure Quest is located at the Fraser Valley Sports Complex (5 minutes from the town of Winter Park), home to soccer and baseball fields, a pond, picnic amenities, restrooms, and an award-winning history-inspired playground celebrating our Western heritage. Plan to bring a picnic and stay awhile!

Winter Park Adventure Quest is a family-owned local business and the dream of Igor Guziur. Growing up in the mountains of the Czech Republic, Igor was on skis before he could walk. He played competitive hockey for 10 years, going on to receive a masters degree in physical education. After working as a ski instructor in the Austrian Alps, Igor came to Winter Park, working as the Nordic Center Director at Snow Mountain Ranch and Activities Director at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, where he operated one of the largest zip lines in the state and the West’s premier Nordic Center.
His active childhood in the Czech countryside inspired Igor to create an experience like those in Europe—one that caters to families and provides fun and approachable outdoor adventure for everyone. When he’s not skiing, Igor loves playing hockey, mountain and road biking, climbing, and taking road trips in his old blue pickup truck with his wife, Cara, and sons Alek and Kieran.
Rock Climbing Tours available daily (Advanced reservation suggested).
