With an annual snowfall of around 29 feet, the conditions here are among the most reliable in Colorado. And with snowmaking facilities covering 27 runs, the season here is long. Located in the Arapaho National Forest, Winter Park is Colorado’s longest continually operated ski resort and first opened in 1940.

With more than 3,000 skiable acres and 143 trails, served by 25 lifts, Winter Park offers great skiing for all abilities. There’s a fantastic beginners’ area, with a dedicated ‘learn to ski’ zone where those heading out on skis for the first time can gain confidence in safety. There are also some of the steepest chutes we’ve seen for intermediates anywhere. Intermediates will really appreciate the long, groomed runs as they continue to develop their skiing skills. There’s also some exciting skiing to be had for the more advanced skiers: the famous Cirque offers a whopping 399 acres of un-groomed mountain to explore!
