Box Canyon Falls In Ouray is Wonderful in Winter

  
  
  

Ouray is a great Spring Break Destination with Kids in Southwest Colorado

Even though it seems like Spring Break is nearly upon us in Southwest Colorado, many beautiful winter photos of Box Canyon Falls (Box Cañon Falls) in Ouray remain.

This attraction is free all winter long (there is a small fee in the Summer) and only a short walk from the Box Canyon Lodge.  The falls are less dramatic in winter since much of the water is frozen.  However, you can still see the very dramatic canyon walls and hear the thunderous roar of the water falling several hundred feet to Canyon Creek below.  

Welcome solitude?  This beautiful waterfall remains very uncrowded and one of the great things to do in Ouray during the winter but you get to enjoy it with fewer people than in the summer.

Walk slowly to the falls as it is somewhat icy but once you turn the corner to see the falls, the grates are free from snow and ice and the beauty of the canyon shines.

The Box Canyon Falls remains cold so warm up with a visit to the Ouray Hot Springs Pool, another fun thing to do in Ouray with Kids over Spring Break.  We sell discount passes to the Ouray Hot Springs to our guests.  Or like most of our hotel guests, enjoy a soak in our natural hot springs terraced on the mountainside as you relax after a fun filled day in Ouray!

As you walk up to the Box Canyon Falls from our hotel in Ouray, you also pass the Ouray Ice Park and many times you can enjoy watching the climbers ascend the icy cliff wall from the road just af few hundred feet from your room.
