Overview

Colorado’s longest continually operating ski resort, Winter Park opened for business way back in 1940 and has been putting smiles on the faces of skiers ever since! Famed for its monster moguls, if you're a fan of knee-shocking bumps the size of small cars then you’ll love it here, but that’s not all. The terrain on offer is vast, with a rare combination of very different types of trails. High alpine chutes and powder bowls, glade skiing and backcountry runs, secluded powder stashes and spacious groomers, all this and more makes Winter Park a truly diverse mountain. Skiers and snowboarders who want to get a taste of off-piste and backcountry style riding while still keeping within ski area boundaries should look no further than Winter Park!

If you know of Winter Park you probably know of Mary Jane, and if you haven't been that's where you should go. The place is large and if you explore you'll be able to get away from the crowds. Trees are good but tight in some spots. The village area is pretty chill with a lot of... More
