My girlfriend and I are flying from Houston into Denver on Friday morning and her Brother is doing the same from Dallas. I wanted to stay near Denver and maybe do a day trip then have dinner and hang out in Denver. We'll stay at the Hyatt/Convention Center most likely due to reward points that night.
Saturday/Sunday nights we plan on staying in Estes Park to ski, tube, etc. We are not experts and just want to have nice views, see wildlife, and play in the snow...surely we will have snow by then.
We leave Monday.
1. I wanted to take a tour Friday. Snomobiles, Wildlife, etc. That night I was thinking about a Helicopter Tour from around Denver?
2. Best place for a two room lodge/hotel with a hot tub in Estes Park? Names/numbers/prices appreciated!
3. Is a minivan going to be able to make the drive? I'd like to take the scenic roads but I hear they're all closed. I have some nice camera equipment and would like to explore to see if I can get some good shots of the wildlife we don't have around here.
