As its name suggests, Winter Park is the ultimate destination for those who love all things winter! Every year, winter sports enthusiasts and families flock to Colorado’s “winter playground” in the cold months to enjoy all that this winter wonderland has to offer. There are plenty of skiing trails to meet the needs of both new and advanced skiers as well as a wide offering of outdoor activities for non-skiers to enjoy the snowy weather. Hoping to avoid peak tourist and/or are looking for a vacation during the warmer months? There is also so much to love about Winter Park in the summer. Summer visitors can find something to do any day of the week, whether it is enjoying the beautiful mountain air while biking, eating delicious food on the patio of a restaurant, or attending one of the many festivals throughout the season.
There are several ways to get around Winter Park proper as well as the surrounding areas. The Lift is a shuttle that runs year-round taking visitors anywhere in Winter Park and Fraser. Amtrak is a great option during ski season to avoid interstate traffic if you plan to visit Denver on the weekends. You can rent a car as well, giving you complete freedom to explore the various natural wonders of the area.
