If it’s live action you’re looking for, you couldn’t be in better luck. At the World Arena Ice Hall, it’s a local’s well-kept secret that Olympic skaters in training perform for free on Friday evenings at 6 p.m., in an event called Fire & Ice. Of course, you can also glimpse athletes in all their glory during free public tours of the U.S. Olympic Training Center itself (not to mention head down to Denver for a Rockies, Broncos, Nuggets or Avalanche game). But if you just want to kick back and catch the game over a beer, head over to The Broadmoor. Many of the hotel bars sport TVs, including, naturally, The Hotel Bar, which boasts three flat-screens; if you just can’t stand to see your team lose, avert your eyes in the direction of the terrific views of Cheyenne Mountain through the picture windows. McCabe’s Tavern specializes in hockey and soccer, while Front Range Barbecue and Phantom Canyon Brewing Company are local favorites for American football.
