Experiencing mindful time outdoors to attune with nature's cycles is a powerful way to reduce stress, improve well-being, and find more joy in life! The average American spends 11 hours per day on a screen, and more than 90% of their lives indoors. Unplug and join us outside to rejuvenate your soul.
Get outside with Firefly this winter in Evergreen, Colorado! There is something for everyone with snowshoeing followed by yoga and mediation, ice skating, sledding, and snowshoeing with our four-legged friends.

Rescheduled to Sunday, March 8, 2020
This one-day event kicks off our winter series with a morning of snowshoeing at O'Fallon Park, followed by lunch at Blackbird Cafe, then a yoga and meditation class at Studio B. This event is a great opportunity to kick off training and conditioning for our June hiking retreat. The day will include approximately 3-mile snowshoe, followed by lunch at a local cafe, then a 75-min yin yoga and meditation workshop. The event is from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Meet at the trailhead to kick off our snowshoe at 10:00am. If you would like to carpool from Studio B, please note that in your registration form. We plan to hike the Meadow View Loop trail, but may alter the plan based on trail conditions. Our yoga workshop is in the beautiful Studio B in Evergreen with all props provided. Registration fee of $95 includes group snowshoe, lunch and yoga and meditation workshop. If you require snowshoe rental, additional fee applies. Register online.
Ice Skating and Hot Chocolate
Tentatively March 13, 2020 - provided the lake is open for skating
One of the best places in Colorado to ice skate is Evergreen Lake. This zamboni-groomed outdoor ice rink is a stunning 8.5-acre stretch of ice with a huge public skating rink, just a half hour from downtown Denver. This magnificent field of ice is spectacularly situated amid ponderosa pine-covered mountains and Evergreen Golf Course, and a short walk to downtown Evergreen.
Escape the winter weather inside breathtaking Evergreen Lake House, enjoying hot chocolate and snacks from the concession area near the giant stone fireplace. Skating at Evergreen Lake is a truly memorable experience. CNN declares that Evergreen Lake is one of the 10 most beautiful ice rinks in the world, and Sunset Magazine rates Evergreen Lake as one of the top 10 ice skating rinks!
Sledding at Meyer Ranch Park
Date TBD - stay tuned for final details!
Looking for something a little more relaxing? You don't have to be a snow athlete to enjoy riding a sled down a snow-covered hill in the winter. Enjoy both large and small sledding hills at Meyer Ranch Park in Conifer. The open space park is managed by Jefferson County and is convenient to Highway 285. You can park at the bottom and pull your sled up the 400-foot hill and slide down time and again. The sledding hill is a grassy hillside when its not covered with snow, with no obstacles or hazards to ruin your fun. You'll find built-up snow ramps to sail over, as well as open space for riding a traditional sled. Bring your sled and join us for a fun afternoon in the snow!
Dog-Friendly Snowshoe Outing
Tentatively March 22, 2020
Grab your four-legged friend(s) and join us for a fun afternoon snowshoe at Alderfer/Three Sisters Park. This easy to moderate winter hike is just 30 minutes from Denver, with a network of hiking trails. Located in the town of Evergreen, off of Buffalo Park Road, the 770 acres and nearly 15 miles of trails are a wonderful place for you and your pup to take in some beautiful views of winter along the front range. Dogs must be leashed. We will select a loop trail based on conditions and participants. This event is free. Simply email us to confirm that you want to join and we'll send you the full details for the day.
