Overview

The Good 

  • Diverse terrain to suit different abilities, from groomers to powder bowls
  • Some of the best steep mogul runs in the country
  • Reliable snowfall, an annual average of over 320 in
  • Its location avoids the infamous I-70 traffic around Eisenhower Tunnel and beyond 

The Bad

  • Lift layout can be a little confusing
  • Base area lacks facilities and activities
  • Access via Berthoud Pass is challenging in bad weather

Find Freshies: For powder stashes head to Eagle Wind territory, it's difficult to access, which means its often last to be tracked out! Or check out Parsenn Bowl and The Cirque as well as Vasquez Ridge territory after a big dump. 

Ditch the Crowds: Most of the family-friendly terrain is close to the amenities, so escape the crowds and head up the mountain to Parsenn Bowl, The Cirque and Eagle Wind territories.  

Local's Pick: Jump onto the High Lonesome Trail before veering right into the seemingly endless and well-spaced trees, perfect for those up for a challenge.

Winter Park has a good variety of runs and terrain. The lifts get you to the runs ina reasonable time. The restaurants offer good choices in convenient locations. I also like that they are on the East side of the Eisenhower Tunnel. It takes less lime to get back to Denver on... More

Winter Park is a great, varied mountain, but it’s proximity to Denver makes it crowded fairly often. The new pass structure may make that even worse. It’s a fun town, and you should check out Mary Jane while you are there.

I really enjoy Winter Park due to the vast number of trails between Winter Park and Mary Jane. Everything that I want to do is within walking distance (or a quick shuttle ride). There are availble shuttles to take you from lodging to the mountain. Lodging and dining is plentiful... More

family friendly, And you get a true since of being in a remote mountain town yet your only 45 minutes from Denver. Also they are investing alot of money into Winter Park but the prices are still the cheapest around.

Winter Park is great for family skiing. Mary Jane provides more challenging skiing when you're skiing with your buddies.

Snow conditions (usually LOTS) and ski-in/ski-out lodging at more reasonable price than other resorts.

winter park is a great place to ski. something for every level and the scenery is absolutely spectacular. if you want it to snow while you are at a resort it is a good place for it to happen.
