Colorado's oldest continually-run ski resort, Winter Park is a serious winter playground that’s relatively undiscovered by British skiers.​

Close to Denver Airport, with fantastic snow and more than 3,000 acres of terrain ski holidays in Winter Park are surprisingly under the radar in the UK ski market. We don’t think it’ll be long before the secret gets out.

Each of the resort's ‘seven territories’ provides a different experience, depending on the level of challenge you’re after. There’s everything from the infamous moguls at Mary Jane to the fabulous groomers on Winter Park’s front face. The dedicated beginners’ area is fantastic for kids, and to experience another resort you can ski at Steamboat on the same lift pass.

At the base of the mountain, the cosy village is excellent value for money. Recent developments have added new bars, restaurants and shops but the atmosphere is low key - this isn’t a resort for party animals.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Call 01273 224060 for advice from our ski specialists.

Overall we felt it was an excellent resort. We suffered from the altitude initially and if we were to go back we would probably stay in Denver for the first night to adjust. One negative would be the high prices in resort.

Good varied skiing, great tree skiing. Wonderful to be in a resort that caters for disabled skiiers.
