Winter Park Travel Guide

Located just over 62 miles to the northwest of Denver, Winter Park is one of the most in-style ski resorts in Colorado. More than 1,222 hectares of ski ground are laid out over five interrelated mountains equipped with 24 lifts. Winter Park also provides a vigorous nightlife, while the close-by towns of Fraser and Winter Park provide further dining and lodging options.

A total of 134 trails cater for all skill levels, with nine percent of the ski-runs rated as easy, 34 percent as intermediate, and 54 percent as difficult. Three percent are for professionals only, while the longest run is a striking five miles. The stunning Parsenn Bowl is situated above the tree-line and discloses fascinating sights.

Winter Park features a variety of dining places and ski-in/ski-out accommodation, custom-tailored ski lessons, ski and snowboard hire as well as conference facilities and childcare, all embedded in a lively ambiance. Several bars and pubs in town and on the mountain present live entertainment. The ski season runs between mid-November and mid-April.
