Winter Park in short

  • 1.5 hr drive from Denver Airport
  • Ski-in, ski-out accommodation
  • 143km of slopes and 120km cross-country trails

Winter Park Resort is home to some fabulous skiing, not only downhill but also cross-country, with some 120km of cross-country skiing trails to its name. The family-friendly ski area has a friendly vibe with typical American hospitality. You can choose whether you prefer to stay on the slopes or in the village. Either way, you’ll be well taken care of!

The base area at Winter Park Resort has an assortment of shops, restaurants and hotels and regular child-friendly activities are arranged. However, if you feel like exploring a bigger town, there is a free public bus that carries skiers and snowboarders past Winter Park downtown to Fraser, a town just down the road. Winter Park Resort is the closest major ski resort to Denver International Airport, just an hour-and-a-half drive away.
