Summit county in December

My husband and I have visited Summit county quite a few times in the summer (and love it) but have never been there in the winter. We are thinking about coming out the first week of December for 3 days. What activities could we do other than ski(have never done it and at our age, don't plan to start now). We hike and bike in the summer. Any suggestions? We will be staying at Dillon. Thanks!

Keystone- ride the lift and eat at Alpenglow Stube (high end)

I can definitely second the gondola at Keystone and dinner at top( i believe there are two restaurants), but the ride alone is great. There is also tubing on mountain, however its pretty steep. Walking around village is nice too.

If you fell for Dillon during the summer, you will love in winter. It's magical. I hope you are renting a place with a view of Lake. We keep returning to a place at Pointe Dillon on VRBO, absolutely perfect view.

Snowmobiling is great too, I think it's White Mountain, will pick you up at City Market in Dillon. Awesome ride to top of Continental divide.
