PARKS & RECREATION ROUNDUP
FEBRUARY 18, 2021
Welcome to the Parks & Recreation Roundup, a bi-monthly publication aimed at
keeping the community informed on our programs, events, and partnerships
DEPARTMENT HIGHLIGHTS
Beacon Training Park
When minutes matter, knowing how to use your safety equipment properly could save someone's life and is the driving force behind Routt County Search & Rescue's new Beacon Training Park at Howelsen Hill Ski Area. The new training park is located near the base of the Barrows chairlift and provides users with a realistic scenario to train and practice their beacon locating skills before heading into the backcountry.

Howelsen Park is undoubtedly one of our communities most beloved areas for fun and outdoor recreation. During the month of February, we are asking you to share the love.
