The Winter Park Ski Resort is the perfect place to vacation thanks to its split personality: the Winter Park side is known for its mix of terrain but with a sophisticated slant, e.g. a renowned ski school that caters to beginners, it hosts six terrain & feature parks, and it is home to the National Sports Center for the Disabled.
On the flip side, there's Mary Jane - it's the edgier side laden with steep, ungroomed advanced/expert terrain and world-class moguls. All in all, it boasts 3,000 acres of skiable terrain for adrenaline-pumping fun! During this resort's summer season, it transforms into a mountain biking mecca & 'all ages' playground, featuring many activities including disc & mini golf, a zip line, a climbing wall, alpine slide and more!
The Winter Park Ski Resort is only about 67 miles from Denver, making it one of the closest major ski resorts to the city. The Resort is only two miles from downtown Winter Park, and given the fact that it sits next to the Continental Divide, the views are expansive and stunning. Visitors from the Front Range can drive to Winter Park and its ski resort by traveling over Berthoud Pass (exit 232 off I-70).
Ski season typically starts in mid-November and ends in mid April.
The Resort opens at 9 a.m. and the lifts close at 4 p.m. (with a few mid-mountain lifts closing down at 3:30 p.m.)
There are three dining options on the mountain: The Snoasis is located mid-mountain on the Winter Park side, and The Lodge at Sunspot is on Winter Park's summit, at the top of the Zephyr Lift. Lunch Rock is on the Mary Jane side, at the top of the Super Gauge Express Lift. Dining options are also available at the Winter Park Base and the Mary Jane Base.
Several rental shops can be found at the Winter Park Base and one rental shop at Mary Jane's base.
Lodging is available at the Winter Park Base as well.
