Balls tumble down 24 synthetic lanes at Pinz Bowling Center, where automatic scoring tracks each strike, spare, and gutter ball on 32-inch flat-screen monitors. The monitors get a workout: The facility's open bowl accommodates rollers until 2 a.m. every Friday and Saturday, adult and youth leagues face off every Saturday morning, and tournaments take place each Saturday night, beginning with strongmen poking holes into round rocks until everybody has a ball. Tournament play continues with biweekly horseshoe competitions at Rodz Lounge, where guests can watch the game on a big-screen TV, sink 8-balls at the billiards table, and test their aim at the dartboard. For music fans, Rodz hosts Friday-night rounds of karaoke and performances from live bands on Saturday night.

For more than 10 years, King's Deer Golf Club's challenging Scottish-style, Redstone Golf–designed course has challenged the swings and putts of all levels of linksmen. A scenic backdrop, featuring 200 acres of rolling hills, lush wetlands, Pike's Peak, and the Rockies, is visible from nearly every corner of the course, which is open year-round. Teach your ball proper travel etiquette on King's Deer's large elevated practice range, putting station, or chipping area, then drive your electronic rickshaw to the well-kept course, its tee yardages averaging 5,054 yards from forward tees and 7,000 yards from professional tees.

With 36 years of experience as a horsewoman, many of the facets of Tammy Chance’s history are familiar; active with 4-H and FFA, rode junior barrels at Cheyenne Frontier Days, and rode speed events in gymkhanas. This breadth of experience makes her well adapted for teaching riders of all ages and skill levels how to safely ride in the Western style. During lessons and day camps, students at Prairie Winds Horsemanship kick up the red dust of the ranch’s practice areas, and then comb it from their steed’s silky mane during postlesson grooming sessions.

Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.

On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.

Helmed by a staff of 15-year veterans, Allstar Paintball lets pigment-powered gunsmiths run wild across a five-man indoor field situated within a 12,000-square-foot facility or on the exciting terrain of the newly opened outdoor field. After strapping on safety gear, filling tanks with CO2, and loading Tippmann 98 hoppers, players maneuver across turf, crouch behind inflatable bunkers, and blend seamlessly into kindergarten art displays as they blast nonstaining, easy-break paintballs in the direction of opposing players. As all-day play unfolds, the facility's veteran referees mix up field patterns to avoid repetitive rounds and monitor each contest to ensure participants compete against visitors of similar age, ability, and devotion to abstract expressionism. Off the field, spectators can check email and live blog battles with complementary WiFi, or admire the paint-splattering play from behind protective netting. To crank up the competition, Allstar Paintball also plays host to friends and frenemies during birthday parties, corporate outings, and oddly vengeful retirement sendoffs. The facility boasts a 5,000-square-foot area replete with chairs and picnic tables for birthday cake cutting and other celebratory activities.

Valley Hi Golf Course’s 18 fairways have been flourishing with rye grass and deciduous trees since 1954, when golfers first began cursing the course’s tricky water hazards and bunker-guarded greens with old-timey swear words such as "leaping argyle!" The 1st hole boasts the course’s longest fairway, whereas the 7th hole stops short to become the shortest par five – the best hope for a birdie. The putting green at the 18th hole keeps golfers on their cleated toes until the very end by demanding, like medieval kings, to be approached from the left and on one’s knees. Those hoping to hone their game can take lessons with a staff headed by PGA golf pro Mike Northern, whose more than 30 years in the game have netted him a full trophy case. Before hitting the greens in the morning, golfers drop by the Caddie Shack Restaurant and Bar to fill their bellies with omelets, and those finishing up a later round can bite into sandwiches or burgers.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Length of 6,806 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 116 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options
