Why Winter Park?
Winter Park has a relatively low profile in comparison with many of Colorado's other ski resorts, which is surprising given its fantastic snow record; it receives more snow than any other ski resort in Colorado.
However, combine this with the fact that Winter Park is the closest ski resort to Denver, and that it is very good value for money and you'll understand why Winter Park's popularity is quickly growing. There is an attractive new resort village with new bars, restaurants and shops and two new condo properties. Its well-priced ski-in ski-out accommodation makes it a good ski holiday choice for families and groups.
The resort is made up of 2 interconnected ski areas - Winter Park and Mary Jane - and currently a cluster of hotels around the bottom of the lifts. The town of Winter Park is a couple of miles down the road. It doesn't have the liveliest nightlife, but Winter Park is a good bet for an affordable holiday in Colorado with great skiing and very friendly people.
