About Winter Park Resort

When Winter Park Resort opened on January 28th, 1940, its founders imagined a place where people near and far would come to enjoy the snow and all the fun the mountain had to offer. A place where everyone would feel welcome, be free to expand their abilities, and never stop imagining even more possibilities.

More than 75 years later, Winter Park Resort is Colorado's longest continually operated ski resort and the largest bike park in North America. Averaging over 320 inches of annual snowfall, 300 days of sunshine, and located just 67 miles northwest of Denver, Winter Park Resort is the closest major destination resort to Denver International Airport and a favorite among the Denver locals who call this place their "home mountain".

We're still adding new territories, trails, lifts, attractions, restaurants, and lodging. Come join us and see for yourself how we never, ever stop imagining more!
