Winter Park typically gets the most snow of any of the Colorado resorts. With an excellent snow record, a huge ski area over five interconnected mountains, modern spacious slope-side accommodation and the shortest airport transfer in Colorado, Winter Park should be on your ‘must ski’ list.
Winter Park has an impressively large ski area with seven distinct ‘territories‘, all of which offer different types of skiing.
Beginners are well catered for and there is a dedicated learning area; Discovery Park. The ski school is considered to have one of the best beginner programmes in Colorado and novices will quickly master the basics.
Intermediates will enjoy miles of groomed runs to cruise around on and with five interconnected mountains to choose from you’ll continually be finding new areas of the mountain to explore. The resort also offers every type of terrain that advanced skiers could wish for including open bowls, tree lined runs and some of the best mogul runs in Colorado on Mary Jane Mountain.
This is a friendly, relaxed, purpose-built ski resort which makes it an ideal destination for families.
The pedestrian friendly ski-in village offers excellent accommodation and a number of family friendly restaurants. For more lively nightlife, the original town of Winter Park is located nearby where you’ll find a wider range of bars and restaurants which come alive at night. The resort operates an efficient free shuttle service between the town and the modern slope-side ski village making it easy to travel between the two.
With an annual average of 320 inches of the white stuff to carve up every season, there is still great skiing available even in late season, which makes the resort an ideal choice for spring skiing in Colorado. Winter Park is also twinned with the ski resort of Steamboat and has a shared lift pass, which makes it a great destination for a two centre holiday.
