Although there isn’t much at The Broadmoor you can’t arrange to do as you see fit on your own time, some activities are planned in advance. Guided hikes and bike rides, as well as many individual and family oriented outdoor activities, are offered through Broadmoor Outfitters. Yoga sessions dot the fitness center’s summer schedule, which also includes group exercise classes of all sorts; a $20 fee applies. Aside from tee and court times, golf and tennis enthusiasts would do well to inquire into clinics, camps and other regularly scheduled events, such as mixed-doubles round robins and family putting contests. The Bee Bunch, an onsite kids’ center, keeps the munchkins busy with everything from arts and crafts to recreation and field trips.
