This is the great outdoors you've dreamed about...

This is the great outdoors you've dreamed about: where fresh air and gorgeous natural surroundings meet high-alpine adventures and soothing retreats. It's the perfect convergence of life, nature and the elements. Winter Park inspires visitors from around the world and constantly rewards those lucky enough to call this home. Come see for yourself.

Winter Park lies just 67 miles from Denver. As you crest the 11,400-foot summit of Berthoud Pass and make your way down US Highway 40, the valley opens up before you like your own four-season playground. From the snowcapped peaks of the Continental Divide to the northern runout of the Fraser River and its tributaries, Winter Park shimmers with life. Winter Park is home to unbelievable outdoor adventure, spectacular scenery and family fun. With over 360" of snow each year, it makes for excellent skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and snow angel making. It is a playground sure to please anyone's inner child.
