If you're like us, seeing those snowy peaks got you excited for winter! In addition to talking about pumpkins in October, we wanted to give you a sneak peak into the upcoming ski and snowboard season so you can start planning accordingly!

The autumn colors will be peaking, but we have some great October activities you're sure to enjoy after your scenic drive through the changing Aspens.

Get Ready for Ski Movies

The Riverwalk Center is an ideal place for catching a ski movie and Matchstick Productions never disappoints in getting its audience pumped for winter! Their latest film will be featured on October 13. Teton Gravity Research will also be featuring a film on October 20. Both of these films will help fill the time while we count down the days and keep an eye on the ski areas' race to be the first to open!

Learn more about the films and purchasing tickets by visiting BreckCreate's Event Calendar for the Riverwalk Center

Pumpkin Fest

October is also the month of Jack-o'-lanterns. Where better to get (pumpkin) carving inspiration than Silverthorne's Pumpkin Fest! With a field of over 2500 pumpkins, you are sure to find some crazy shapes and features to get inspired. The  Pumpkin Fest also offers a petting zoo and more. You can learn more here.

Arts & Crafts

Since the weather can be iffy this time of year, BreckCreate is a fantastic option for getting creative. They have adult arts and crafts but also family focussed projects throughout the month. Keep it in mind other months of the year and learn what's going on for your preferred dates by visiting the BreckCreate website
