The Winter Park skiing offers numerous stashes and trails for every ability. Looker's right side of the mountain is a beginner and intermediate cruiser paradise. Novice skiers and those who prefer slower speeds and gentle slopes will find a multitude of trails to explore at their own pace. Plus, beginner skiers can find several green runs from the top of the 11,200-foot Mary Jane, which yields more than 2,000 vertical feet of beginner skiing, back to the base of Winter Park. Few ski resorts can offer beginners that kind of access.

Intermediate to advanced intermediates have so many terrain options they'll think that Winter Park was made just for them. From perfectly spaced glades and sustained cruisers that run the entire length of the mountain, the Winter Park intermediate skiing is standout. But, the best, and most renowned intermediate terrain can be found in Parsenn Bowl, an expansive, breathtaking bowl at over 12,000 feet that offers exclusively blue or dark blue (advanced intermediate) terrain. Experts will be more than pleased with the many challenging mogul runs at Mary Jane, as well as Winter Park's inbound extreme zone: Vasquez Cirque, an annual host of an extreme skiing competition.

The vast and varied terrain of Winter Park also makes it a great ski area for families or groups that have differing levels of skiing ability. Winter Park offers multiple chairlifts that access beginner through expert terrain, allowing everyone in your group or family the chance to meet up and enjoy the chairlift ride together.
