Full review

I planned a weekend ski trip for my boyfriend and I to Winter Park. I've heard the many great things on this Colorado Resort and had to witness it first hand myself. I was not disappointed when we came in early April to take advantage of the post busy season resort.

The resort was fantastic - it had all the amenitites right there within walking distance (5min walk from Condos) and if you wanted to go into town you just have to hop on a shuttle that comes pretty often. The conditions on the slopes were as good as peak season in my opinion and the lack of crowds made it better. We boarded the entire mountain from PB to MJ to WP and met some very gracious locals along the way.

I plan on revisiting WP with a larger group of friends to take advantage of the great breweries and restaurants that WP has to offer. I can't find any cons except that the mountain closes at 4pm.
