Winter Park is the closest major resort to Denver making it an ideal option if you are travelling for just a week, or even longer. The three huge mountains offer diverse terrain for all abilities, from testing bowls to gentle cruisers, and receiving close to 10 metres of snow in an average season a day skiing powder is the norm, not the exception. Winter Park has been a popular American resort for some time but thanks to the new resort village at the base of the slopes it is becoming an increasing popular option for British skiers and snowboarders with more than 50 bars and restaurants split between the ski resort and nearby town.
Apart from a variety of beginner runs, Winter Park has its own dedicated beginner area called Discovery Park, with gentle runs, adventure trails and first timers race course.
Head for Vasquez Ridge and Winter Park and enjoy! Wide open perfectly groomed cruising runs such as Jabberwocky and Sundance abound. Winter Park's ace in the pack is Parsenn Bowl where 99% of the bowl terrain is designed for intermediates.
Experts will revel in the delights of Mary Jane, where you can test your skills on moguls and steeps galore and hone your powder skills at Parsenn Bowl. Another 435 acres of exciting and challenging terrain awaits at Vasquez Cirque.

Winter Parks ski resort village has some quirky restaurant whereas its town has more traditional American places to eat • in Winter Park ski village our favourites are the good Mexican food at Lime, Cheeky Monk offers a bit of the Alps in the Rockies and if you are after quick and easy then Goodys is brilliant! • in the town of Winter Park there is a wider choice with Hernando’s pizza being a local institution and Deno’s does great American fare, but there are lots of grills and pubs here – even fast food if you really want to get in the American spirit!
