Skypark at Santa’s Village is a great slice of nostalgia in the mountains. I grew up going to Santa’s Village and SkyPark has done an excellent job bringing back childhood memories while creating an outdoor adventure park. I’ve been here many times and have had nothing but great experiences. The concerts they host tend to be my favorite. Their staff is welcoming, friendly and there to help. Everyone is so nice and full of Christmas cheer. If you’re in the mountains, you do not want to miss out on SkyPark!

My wife, seven year-old son and I went to Skypark to ride the mountain bike trails, but were surprised to find so much more to enjoy during our two days there.

First, the trails were very well maintained and we were able to get on the spot recommendations for what would be safe and fun for the three of us. There were sufficient trails to entertain us for two full days at Skypark. We did beginner, intermediate and one advanced downhill trail. We also liked the cross country trails. From what I could see, the advanced riders were getting their money's worth as well.

For a single admission fee (for each) numerous rides and attractions were also available to us. When we took breaks from riding, we used the bungee jumps, zip-lines, pedal carts, and archery range. Each attraction was in excellent condition and well staffed.

Throughout our time at Skypark, staff were proactive in asking us if we needed anything and how we were enjoying our visit. They engaged us in conversations and really were interested in our views on the state of the trails, in particular.

The other surprise was the excellent meals served in their restaurants. We found a variety of foods, snacks, coffee and desserts throughout the park and were even more surprised to find the costs (since there is really no alternatives) quite reasonable.

The Santa's Village theme is pervasive (except on the trails) and I think after Thanksgiving it will be even more fun for preschool and elementary school children to visit, with Santa actually there.

It's clear that someone has put a lot of money into making this a modern, safe and fun destination. It is also clear that they are continuing to improve and expand the attractions.

We had no children in our party, but the children we saw there seemed to be having a great time. We just walked around the grounds, which is free this time of year. Understood we could hike, but area was blocked off and hiking only available with a guide twice per day.

Like stepping back in time....only better! The old park has become new and exciting...not just Santa and the Elves. Great outdoor adventure, with many "pedal themed" attractions and venues. Music most weekends....don't forget the Pedal
Pub and cozy up around the fire pits! Something for everyone!!

$10 to park, can't bring dogs and it seemed like the lot was mostly used by mountain bike dudes as a starting place. I think they had all the fun.

Hi, airbrush! We do charge $10 for parking but when you eat at one of our restaurants, they subtract that cost from your bill. And, no, we don't allow dogs in the park, although we plan to have a dog park/kennel next summer when we open our RV park. Sorry you were disappointed. Next time, come into the park and you'll have fun, too!
