Celebrate 70 years of winter fun at Winter Park with two free lift tickets. The lift tickets are good from opening day, Nov. 18, through Christmas Day.

The way the deal works is that you need to stay two nights or more at participating lodging properties with Winter Park Resort and the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce. The two groups are teaming up to make the free skiing offer.

You will get one free lift ticket per night booked, no matter how big the lodging unit, or how many in your party. If you stay four nights, you will get four lift tickets.

The Winter Park Ski & Ride School also offers some lesson packages. Kids can get three full-day lessons for $299. It includes lifts, lunch, and helmet. The Adult Easy Start lesson is available for $69. It's for first timers. It's a 2.5 hour lesson for skiers or snowboarders ages 13 and up. Call 800-729-7907 for details on lessons.

Winter Park is one of the closest resorts to Denver's Front Range, just 67 miles northwest of the city. It is Colorado's longest continually operated ski resort. You'll find over 3,000 acres of terrain which includes groomers, terrain parks, bumps, steeps, and trees.
