Estes in the News

Through Visit Estes Park’s pitching efforts, Estes Park has been showcased in a number of impressive publications. Here are our most recently published articles.

Next Athletes in Residence Announced

Help us to welcome the next round of athletes coming to Estes Park late winter/early spring!

Caroline Gleich will be in town for her second residency at the end of March. Her last visit was hampered by an injured knee just prior to her arrival. With a healed knee — and an Everest summit — under her belt, this year's trip will allow her to fully experience all Estes Park has to offer.

Next up is Paige Claassen, who as many of you may know, has roots in Estes Park. She'll be here toward the end of April or early May, seeking out the best weather to get out on the rocks.

Courtney Dauwalter will arrive sometime in May, ready to tackle the high altitude and elevation of our town and the surrounding forests.

This is the third AiR round and will be the first to include planned athlete-led events the community can take part in. Keep an eye out for details and we hope to see you there!

Social Co-op Sign-up

Social co-op slots are available Fridays from April through June! Email Kendall with your preferred date (or date range) and slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t miss out.

The social co-op is an opportunity to advertise your business to our 160,000+ Facebook followers, and then some! We work with you to craft your post, then boost the post (and VEP will match that boost up to $500).
As always, please contact us with any questions, comments or concerns. We are here to help! Thank you for being an involved Partner!
