Take a Ghost Tour
Owners Rob and Lela Newey are retired history teachers who enlisted the help of filmmaker Erik Hutchins – an expert in metaphysics, paranormal activity, ESP, and crop circles, among other things – to help them research a plethora of local ghost stories to find the 15 tales that they found to be the most frightening and exciting. Take an entertaining tour with them to decide whether or not you believe!
Ride an Alpine Rollercoaster
When warmer weather arrives, you’ll find that this gravity-driven coaster offers plenty of thrills. Built upon elevated tracks – similar to bobsled tracks – this unique coaster can reach speeds of up to 30 mph, zipping riders through more than a mile of bends, curves, hair-pin turns, and loops. You control your speed by applying the brakes – or not! You’ll also enjoy incredible mountain scenery showcasing our aspens and other natural life as you soar down the mountainside.
Clearly, you’ll never run out of activity and entertainment options during your stay at Stein Eriksen Lodge. No matter the adventure or entertainment you desire, we can help you find it near our world-class resort.
