Winter Park
“The Jewel of Colorado”

It all started back in the season of 1939-40 when the city of Denver opened the ski area to provide a “winter park” for its residents. And while it may have humble beginnings, Winter Park has morphed into a very large ski resort with first class facilities. It’s no longer just for Denver day trippers, but also a major destination resort.

Winter Park is characterized with terrain for beginners, intermediates, and park shredders. The Mary Jane terrain is more difficult and is pigeonholed with lots of single black diamond mogul runs. Mary Jane also has trees where you might find a little powder stash and solace from the bumps. Parsenn Bowl provides alpine terrain for strong intermediates, and Vasquez Ridge also has lots of blue runs. Vasque Cirque is peppered with cliff bands, providing short pitches of alpine “extreme terrain” in the form of chutes and other treats.

Winter Park, with a base elevation of 9000 ft, is the fourth largest resort in Colorado, and boasts 3,081 skiable acres, and a vertical drop of 3,060 feet. Trails are ranked 24% green, 22% blue, 54% black. We dare you to ski it all in 4 days! We are staying at the Vintage Hotel, two per room, which has its own restaurant and bar as well as an outdoor pool and a spa hot tub to soothe those sore legs at the end of the day. The hotel is within a short walk to the village gondola. In addition, Winter Park offers ziplining, tubing and sledding. Come explore this “gem” of a ski trip.
