Homer Hoyt founded the glass-arts school Glasscraft in 1970, the same year he penned the book Glassblowing: An Introduction to Solid and Blown Glass Sculpturing. Both creations have aged well: his book remains in print, and his school, staffed by qualified instructors who teach the intricate art of molding glass, continues to thrive. Inside safe, clean studios, students learn to decorate the surface of beads with swirls of color and create sculptures with solid insides perfect for concealing genies from jealous family members. Guest artists often visit the school to lead workshops centered around their specialization.

In a reflection of how easy it is to make a quick jaunt of I–70 on the way to the Colorado ski resorts, the staff at Exit 240 Ski Shop puts convenience first. In doing so, it supplies clients with four levels of ski and snowboard rentals, along with waxing and tuning services, so customers are ready to hit the slopes as soon as they arrive. While they are fitted for boots, they can chat with the staff about the latest snow reports while sipping selections from a full espresso bar.

The blank canvases at Old Paint Bar aren't just made of canvas. In fact, visitors can choose to paint a wine glass or a piece of smooth wood with provided paint and brushes, sipping on loose-leaf tea that's also provided by the staff. During each class, students are led step-by-step through easy to follow instructions in order to see their pieces through to completion, or at least fridge worthy to cover up childhood report cards. Adults are encouraged to bring their own wine to drink during class. Group packages for kids 8 and up are also available for birthday parties or special occasions.
