With an average annual snowfall of over 912 cm – the most consistent of any major Colorado resort – Winter Park offers 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 a brand new village created at the base of the mountain, with new lodging; Fraser Crossing and Founders Pointe, along with a new 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.
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.

Winter Park Resort has five distinct mountains, Winter Park, Mary Jane, Parsenn Bowl, Vasquez Cirque and Vasquez Ridge. Winter Park Mountain is a haven for family skiing with its beautifully groomed cruiser runs, terrain parks and halfpipe. Mary Jane Mountain has some of the best mogul skiing in North America, while Vasquez Ridge has great powder skiing. Parsenn Bowl offers high-altitude skiing for intermediate and advanced skiers and riders. Finally there is Vasquez Cirque featuring a daunting mix of cornices, rock outcrops, steeps and glades. The Rocky Mountain International ticket is also valid at Winter Park’s sister resort, Copper Mountain, making it ideal for a twin destination holiday. New for 2007/08, the Panoramic Express 6 passenger chairlift will span from the bottom of Sunnyside Chairlift to the top of Parsenn Bowl. This new lift will provide faster access to over 1,123 acres of terrain including Vasquez Cirque and the Eagle Wind Chairlift complex.
