Winter Park Ski Resort Overview

Winter Park Resort is a Colorado favorite. Originally built by the city of Denver as a "winter park" for its residents, Winter Park Resort has continually operated since 1939. While it is only 60 miles from Denver, it is separated by huge mountain ranges and therefore has a very remote feel to it.

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.

While the main way to reach Winter Park is by I-70 West and US-40 (about 1.5 hours from Denver), you can also reach the slopes by train. The double-decker Winter Park Express is a weekends-only 2-hour train ride from downtown Union Station to Winter Park. It does sell out so buy your tickets early!
