Challenge Level

There's something for everyone at Winter Park Resort. The terrain is split into seven territories, each with its own distinct personality and flavor. The Winter Park Territory is best suited for beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. For experts, head to the Mary Jane territory where the majority of runs are black diamond.

Things To Do

Winter Park Resort makes for a great skiing destination if you're after a quiet family getaway. Non-skiers can try the old-fashioned thrill of tubing at the Historic Fraser Tubing Hill or the Colorado Adventure Park. The resort also offers:

  • Dog Sledding
  • Fat Biking
  • Ice Skating
  • Snowcat Tours
  • Snowshoeing
  • Snowmobiling
  • Tubing

Accessibility

If you’re traveling by air to Colorado, you’re going to end up at Denver International Airport. From the airport you have plenty of options, including rental car, shuttle bus, private limo and train travel to get to Winter Park. The Home James Shuttle Service makes getting to the slopes easy with eleven runs between Denver International Airport and the Winter Park Resort daily during winter and takes roughly 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take the Winter Express which offers weekend train services directly into the base of Winter Park Resort. The line runs early January through to late March and you’ll need to pre-book through Amtrack.

Recommended Airport:

  • Denver Intl. Airport 90 mi (2 hour drive)

When To Go

January and February are a great time to visit Winter Park, outside of holiday weekends. Locals here enjoy a wonderfully long ski season, the high elevation soon turns the peaks white once fall turns to winter. Generally, the slopes and lifts on the lower parts of the mountain are open for a full five months, sometimes even a little longer, from mid-November to late-April. As with all of Colorado, the best months for snow are January and February. It takes a big dump of powder before the expert-only terrain at the top of the mountain is ready to be shred, so if this is a big draw for you then time your visit during February. While weekdays can be surprisingly quiet, weekends can see droves of skiers and snowboarders from Denver descend on Winter Park Resort, particularly during the peak season of December to February.
