The town of Winter Park, population of approximately 1,000 is home to the Winter Park ski area. The ski area is owned by the city of Denver and run by a nonprofit corporation. That means that fun takes precedent over funds at this resort, making it the most affordable family option. Most of the resort's lodging is located in the main village, less than 2 mi/3 km from the slopes.

Winter Park has 143 designated trails spread over three interconnected mountains, a high alpine bowl and the Vasquez Cirque powder area. Snowboarding is almost a religion there. Newcomers to the sport will enjoy Discovery Basin. The National Sports Center for the Disabled offers tremendous ski programs for adults and children with disabilities.

An adjacent mountain, Mary Jane, is famous for world-class bump skiing, and it has exceptional moguls. Other activities in the area include ice skating, snowmobiling, downhill inner tubing and cross-country skiing.

During the summer time, Winter park has all the famous outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. Mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, golfing, and rafting are all at your disposal. You can find anything from bars/pubs to gourmet restaurants on every corner. There are several local gift shops and art galleries to explore during your visit.
