Ski Winter Park

The Winter Park ski area 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 winterparkskiresort 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.

Winter Park Colorado, my vote for the best value in skiing out West!

Lee Hicks


Arrived Sunday, Jan. 22, 2017 and out Thursday, Jan. 26th. We got in a little early, so we got my equipment rental at the main equipment rental place, they were very helpful, but don't know why they said we had to wait until 3:00pm, when they were so slow. I took a lesson on Monday and was very pleased with my instructor 'Barry' he had lots of patience and understanding, he is one of the most positive people I have met. My girlfriend skied the blues and blacks and said they were very groomed and good. I stayed on the greens and was pleased there were so many to get my confidence built up on. I was worried that everyone would be into highly experienced runs. This seemed to be a good resort for all levels of experience. We ate twice at Vertical, one good food the other 'fair'. The Black bowl Soup was great, they had a private booking the night we went, but the owner/manager? said he could get us soup to go, wow, great soup and kindness. The pizza peddler was also very good and the staff great. We ate lunch at Moffat Market, once with my lesson and once just because of the great selection and great staff. Staying on the property was very convenient, we could walk to everything we needed and shop for items to take back to the room. Very pleased with the resort and I cannot say enough about the staff.

Good resort

Great family resort. Lots of runs for all ability groups.

Snoasis was a welcome retreat but could use more indoor seating.

Winterpark Resort

I did enjoy so much except one thing. It was NASTAR Race. I'm trying NASTER Race at All Resorts that I have visited.
At this time, it was no available there.
The lift map was saying the location and the time for NASTAR Race. I went there many times but no race without any notice at there.

Great Mountain

This was my first time skiing at a mountain this large and it was better than I expected. One the shuttle to the resort, several people told me the skiing was better than Aspen and Vail. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but I believe it is probably better for the price.

The Winter Park village at the bottom of the slopes closes down way too early. Fortunately, the resort offers a free shuttle to the town of Winter Park and Frasier, so you are able to get to restaurants and bars later in the evening.

The best deal we found on the mountain was the pizza place in the basement at Mary Jane. It was $3 per slice which is much cheaper than any other food options on the mountain.

We stayed at Fraser Crossing and, from what we heard, it is the best place to stay. The hot tub on the 3rd floor is extremely large with great views of the moutain. The rooms are also more updated from what we heard.

Finally, booking through was the best choice we could have made. My friend flew in from a different airport and met me in Denver. His return flight was bumped up from 9:30pm to 7:00pm which would obviously get in the way of our last day of skiing. Marcella was able to find a very reasonable flight later in the evening so that we could enjoy our last day there. I will definitly be booking through in the future since they were able to put together a cheaper package at a better hotel (we were going to pay more for the Vintage hotel) and they come through when last minute changes are needed such as our flight.

Love Winter Park

Went to WP in December 2010 and absolutely loved it. No lift lines, wide open trails, great friendly staff. Excellent diversity of trails and toms of skiable terrain. I can't wait to go back! Definitely seemed to be a locals mountain - doesn't get the same congestion as some of the more well known spots in Colorado.

We stayed at the Olympia Lodge which was a great, cheap place to stay in downtown Winter Park.
Cynthia in Leesburg

I loved Winter Park

Had a great time. Weather and conditions were very good. Beaver Village Condos are on the bus route and the buses run on schedule and make it easy to get to and from mountain. If some in your party want to go home early it makes it easy. Rented skis through the demo shop and they were great at helping me pick the right ski for the right conditions. Staff at Winter Park was friendly and relaxed, even when it was busy. Condo unit was awesome - newly renovated and clean with everything we needed.
Matt in Santa barbara

Winter Park was Great

I want to give props to the staff at Winter Park. They were some of the friendliest and helpful people I have ever met. It was my girlfriend's first day on a snowboard and she thoroughly enjoyed her lesson. The Snowboard Instructor gave a great lesson for beginners. Everyone from the rental shop to the restaurant was ready to help. I would recommend it to all my friends. Thanks to the park staff
Amy in Silver spring

We loved Winter Park

Great resort! We were there for 4 days, and never got to ski all the slopes. Great variety of slopes for skiers and boarders. Incredibly beautiful views from slopes and from the lodges. Lines go very quickly - never had to wait more than 5 minutes, and we were there during Christmas break.
Gerald in Milwaukee

Best variety at Winter Park

Our extended adult family had a wonderful time at Winter Park. We have a wide range of skiing skills from novice to expert and all found many different runs to please our needs. Snow conditions were excellent and getting into the ski area is much easier than pricier areas (Vail, Aspen). The best value in Colorado.
karla in Tulsa

Winter Park was GREAT!!!

The resort is great. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help. the private classes are great, worth every penny if you are a first timer. Resort is clean and well maintained. The trails varied widely, so if you have different skill levels in your group this is a great resort. The price of this resort is extremely reasonable and one of the cheapest in colorado. Even though the price is low, that does not mean the resort is low quality. The mary jane restuarnt was really cool. The food was good and it had good atomosphere.

In my opinion, if you want to try a ski trip out West, or if you just plain want to try skiing and never have before, then give the Winter Park ski resort a try. Winter Park Is a high-elevation resort nestled against the continental divide about an hour and 45 minutes from Denver. I find that I can price out a ski trip there for those that have never, ever skied before and I can usually bring it in at a really fantastic price. The ski school there is great, and there is a good variety of terrain for everyone. I am an intermediate, and I love the fact that Winter Park ski resort has bowl skiing near the top for intermediate skiers! For the non skier, Winter park has 3 tubing parks, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. The Zephyr Mountain Inn at the base has condos up to 3 bedrooms in size that are ski in, ski out, and Founders Point is right across the street from the Zephyr, but with a lower price point since it is walk to skiing. There are also a lot of other lodging options up to and including large homes. Give me a call at ext 3692 or email and let’s discuss a trip to Winter Park!
