Winter Park

Ski Winter Park

Less than two hours’ drive from Denver, Winter Park has an amazing snow record and is the third largest ski area in Colorado with interconnected mountains and glorious sunshine guaranteed. Over the past few years Winter Park has undergone a $40 million investment programme, enhancing the ski area.

Colorado offers a fantastic, authentic all- American winter sports experience. From downtown to slope-side hotels, there’s accommodation to suit every school group, and your students can look forward to jaw-dropping scenery as well as fun-filled evenings in the nearby cinema, bowling alley and tubing park.

With ridges, bowls and ski trails, Winter Park caters for everyone from the beginner skier to the adrenaline seeking expert. Winter Park offers everything to make a memorable ski trip an outstanding one - great snow, plenty of sunshine, a big, varied ski area and easy accessibility.

Skiing

Expect huge smiles from your whole group, with long groomed trails for intermediates to perfect their turns on, plus a 30-acre Discovery Park where first-timers can practice their snowploughs alongside likeminded learners.

Once up and running, Winter Park offers mile after mile of wide open intermediate slopes which are perfect for laid back cruising, designed to make you feel and look like a professional. For experienced skiers, the famous Mary Jane area gives plenty of challenge, plus they will get to experience Colorado’s legendary ‘champagne powder.’
