Winter Park Resort is the closest major ski resort to Denver (1½ hours driving time) and has long boasted of a reputation as the favourite ski area in Colorado. A ski area with varied terrain, consistantly good snow, exceptional children’s and beginner facilities and moderate prices. The area also has abundant cross-country skiing opportunities, including Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
Winter Park Resort consists of four adjacent ski areas: Winter Park, Mary Jane, (including Parsenn Bowl), Vasquez Cirque, and Vasquez Ridge. A network of trails and chairlifts connects the four distinct mountains. Winter Park’s ski area – still owned by the city – is world class. When Intrawest (developers of resorts such as Whistler) got involved a few years ago, there was the prospect of a world-class resort being developed at the base, too. But things have stalled, and expansion plans now seem to have been put on hold.
For the present, there’s only a small, very quiet ‘village’ at the base, and most lodging, shops and restaurants are a bus ride away in the rather limited town of Winter Park.
Flights available to Denver, from which its about 90 minutes by shuttle to Winter Park.
