With an average annual snowfall of over 912 cm – the most consistent of any major Colorado resort – While the resort offers something for all levels of skier and snowboarder, Winter Park is probably best known for some of Colorado’s most challenging skiing and its proximity to Denver International Airport means you’ll have more time to enjoy the mountain.
Recent developments have seen an expansion of the village at the base of the mountain, with more lodging options, along with a pedestrian main street featuring a selection of restaurants and shops – all within walking distance of the lifts. The resort offers plenty of activities for non skiers including scenic snowcat rides, snowmobiling, tubing, dog sledding, ice skating, sleigh rides and hot air ballooning to name but a few. Guests can also use Colorado’s oldest hot springs resort, Hot Sulphur Springs.
The main town is located 3 miles down the road from the base village and offers a good choice of bars and restaurants for a fun evening out.
Facilities for children
A non-ski programme for children aged 2 months to 6 years with indoor activities and lunch is available on site (reservations required). Child Care is located in the Kids Adventure Junction Centre at the base of Winter Park.
