More Info

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.
