Weekend Roundup: Sunrise Service, Free Skiing and Kayaking Downhill

KWGN-TV -- If you're looking to get out and about this weekend to explore our beautiful state, we have some events for you that are Unique 2 Colorado!

FREE SKIING AT LOVELAND
If you're heading into the mountains this weekend (4/15-4/16), you can soar towards the heavens with some free skiing at Loveland Ski Area! 'Play Days' as it's called, is being sponsored by REI's new Dillon location. The first 500 people who visit the REI lounge at the base of the mountain both Saturday and Sunday will receive FREE lift tickets. You can also receive free yoga passes. You'll want to get there by 7:30am, since it's a first come, first served thing. Interested? Click here for more info on the event.

KAYAKING DOWN MONARCH MOUNTAIN
If you like the mountains, but like spring more, Monarch Mountain has a cool one for you! The 11th annual 'Kayaks on Snow' event slides onto the slopes from 9am-2pm on Saturday (4/15). Click here to learn more information.
