A day off the slopes in Frisco

Most people find themselves booking a trip to Summit County for the sole purpose of visiting one of our world class ski resorts. While some intend to ski or snowboard every day, other factors can cause a change of plans. Harsh weather, poor conditions, tired legs, and big crowds can definitely deter you from spending the day on the hill. That’s why I’ve put together an itinerary with some exciting alternatives to enjoy a day off the slopes in Frisco.

Start your day of leisure off with a delicious breakfast at Bread and Salt. Sit down and enjoy a variety of top notch meals served by an incredibly friendly staff. If you’re looking to get the fun started a little quicker, you can always stop in for a burrito-to-go at the Log Cabin Café. 

Now that your belly is full, take a trip over to the Frisco Adventure Park for some tubing. If everyone in your group isn’t an avid skier or snowboarder, this gives the whole group a chance to enjoy sliding down the hill together. You can also take a roll around in the Tumble Bubbles. Jump inside a 9ft inflatable ball and bounce, smash, and roll into other tumblers while you try not to pull a stomach muscle from laughing too hard. If you’re trying to keep the fun under a roof, there are plenty of indoor options as well.

Now, I might be a bit biased when it comes to this first activity. The Frisco Escape Room comes in at #1 on my list of indoor things to do in Frisco. Frisco Escape Room offers a group activity created to captivate and challenge players of nearly every age. Watch everybody laugh and holler as you solve mysteries, uncover clues, and race against the time. To top it all off, a series of rooms have been designed around actual events in the county’s history. It really is one of the best ways you can get the whole gang smiling from ear to ear. After your trip to the escape room, stop in at The Clubhouse for a cocktail and a little indoor golf. Drive balls into a large screen and watch them soar into the virtual world. This place has a very relaxing, yet fun atmosphere.

If you’re looking for a bit of a slower pace. You can visit the Gather House glassblowing studio and watch skilled craftsmen transform 2000-degree molten glass into functional art. You can even sign up for a class! Frisco also offers a museum as well as several other historical sites to let you step back in time and understand what it was really like to live in the wild west.

Finish your day off with any one of Frisco’s incredible restaurants. Enjoy an excellent steak at 5th Ave. Grille or twirl your fork into some pasta at Greco’s. You can even take your taste buds down south to the Bayou at The Lost Cajun. I could go on and on about each of the noteworthy eateries to visit, but that might be better saved for its own write up.

Well, there you have it. A day packed with as much or as little action as you’d like. Indoors or out, the town of Frisco offers plenty of options to keep the entire crew occupied while you give those legs a rest.
