Bringing the Mountain

We're looking forward to you coming to see us, but in the meantime, we'll bring the mountain to you!

Ways to enjoy our attractions

From the comfort of your home

Okay, so maybe you’ve had enough of the comfort of your home lately.  We can certainly all relate on that front!  We’re itching to get back out on the mountain and play in the rocky mountain sunshine.  In the meantime, our attractions are hard at work.  They’ve all put new policies in place to help keep you safe when you come to visit.  It’s going to be a team effort, and you’ll be recruited to be on our side.  For more information about our new guidelines and who’s open, check out our Coronavirus page.  We’re taking this all very seriously, but we also know we’re #StrongerTogether!

As things start to open up around the country, the time nears where we can welcome you once again to the sunny hills of Colorful Colorado.  While you wait, enjoy our attractions from the ultimate social distance — virtual!  Now is a fantastic time to plan.  If you can’t yet come to the mountain, we’ll bring the mountain to you!  Remember, there is a light at the end of this tunnel and I imagine that light is rocky mountain sunshine surrounded by the “bluest ever skies.” Look forward to the days we can go back out and play!

Please stay safe.  Stay strong.  Stay sane.  We’ll help you pass the hours.  

Order a free guide

Mailed anywhere in the uS

When we put together this year’s visitor’s guide, we had no idea what this year would bring.  Now we have tons of these beautiful, glossy, 84 page guides and no one to share them with.  Order one … please! It is the ultimate planning tool for a trip to the Pikes Peak region, and we promise not to lick the envelope.  (No, really, there’s no envelope.)

If you’d rather keep it green, we support that 100%.  You can scroll through the digital guide here.  It’s got all the same information, but zero trees.  

Web Cams

Take a peek in real time

If you can’t wait to get a glimpse of your favorite attraction, check out our collection of webcams.  You can visit a presently lonely Broadmoor Seven Falls, watch the clouds swoop over Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain, or snoop on giraffes on Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s giraffe cam.

Even when you can’t be here, you can feel like you’re with us.  And that’s how we like to think of it — even though we’re apart, we’re still together.

Local’s Tip: Tune in at different times of day to get different views.  Sunrise and sunset can be extra spectacular.

Social from a distance

Connect with us on your favorite platform

Social media is a big part of what we do, but it feels more important than ever.  We’ve all been stuck at home for a while, and for some of us, that means we’re totally alone.  When I feel most alone, I look at Pikes Peak.  That big beautiful mountain feels like family, and that brings me comfort. 

Connect with us on your favorite platform, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube or Pinterest.  We’re sharing videos, blogs, cool ways to connect virtually with our attractions, and pretty pictures.  Recently, we’ve been gifted some cool old photos from fans who’ve been passing the time going through old albums.  We’re sharing favorite memories, inspiration from our fans, and our plans for the future.  We might even have a random contest or two just to keep things interesting.

Pikes Peak – America's Mountain

Pikes Peak remains open during all things coronavirus.  They are asking folks to pre-purchase tickets online to reduce the amount of exchange at the gate.  You can get a couple bucks off your ticket by using PP2OFF on your order on our site.  There’s currently one gift shop open at mile six at Crystal Reservoir. Please note they are limiting capacity and requiring masks in the gift shop.   

The highway is ALWAYS weather dependent.  Call 719-385-7325 for the most up to date road conditions.  The highway is open from 9am till 5pm and they allow the last car at 3pm.

Virtual Itinerary

We think about all our friends trying to fill the hours while they shelter at home during this crazy virus.  It gets boring and lonely and sometimes straight up weird!  Enjoy some of our beautiful landscape from the comfort and safety of your home.  Share it with your loved ones — heck, you could even Facetime each other and enjoy it together!  That’s how this region is really meant to be experienced — together.  Soon friends.  Very soon.  But for now, this is the next best thing.  #StrongerTogether

We also recommend our other pre-built itineraries as a way to plan your next trip with us.  We have them sorted by categories, grouped by what’s closest together and balanced by high and low exertion levels.  Check out our Itinerary Page for more.
