Winter Park Resort is a Colorado favorite located about 67 miles northwest of Denver. Originally built by the city of Denver as a winter park for its residents, Winter Park Resort has continually operated since 1939.

The ski area is known for being a very family friendly resort and has terrain for all ability types. Winter Park contains over 3,000 skiable acres that span across two distinct mountains and is home to a majority of beginner and intermediate trails. Mary Jane Mountain is home to amazing tree skiing, world-class moguls, and wide open alpine bowls.

The resort contains modern amenities with an extensive well developed trail system.  The village base contains multiple lodging, dining and shopping options.

The resort divides its terrain between two different mountains: Mary Jane and Winter Park. Each mountain is unique with its own distinct characteristics. Winter Park contains long wide groomed trails and is home to Winter Park’s renowned ski and ride school. Vasquez Ridge is off the beaten path and contains some powder stashes hidden away within the intermediate to advanced trails.

Mary Jane is home to legendary tree skiing and mogul runs. At the top of Parsenn Bowl, skiers and riders are met with spectacular 360 degree views. Parsenn Bowl offers skiers and riders an intermediate friendly high-alpine experience. Off the Eagle Wind chairlift is home to excellent tree skiing and steep glades.

Winter Park Resort is known for being one of Colorado’s first ski destinations. In the 1920s, the Moffat railroad tunnel was built to connect the western slope to Denver. After construction was completed, George Cranmer of Denver’s Park and Recreation board suggested a winter park be built for Denver’s residents.  The winter park was serviced by a ski train that transported passengers from Union Station in Denver to Winter Park via the Moffat Tunnel.
