Even though Winter Park Resort is the closest major destination to Denver International Airport, the resort is skipped too often by international guests. Located just 67 miles northwest of Denver, it is divided into seven so-called territories with plenty of beginner terrain in the Winter Park Territory, a good variety of groomed intermediate runs in Vasquez Ridge Territory, and award-winning steeps and moguls in Mary Jane territory. Find more details on every territory by clicking the different test categories underneath this text. But what’s so special about Winter Park? It features a 75-year history and thus is not only the longest continuously operated ski resort in Colorado, but also quite steeped in history. The resort is owned by the city of Denver and all profits are used to maintain other municipal parks in the city. Since season 2016/17,  Winter Park is served by Amtrak trains on weekends, which is a great alternative to increasing traffic on the I-70. The train leaves at Denver Union Station and is a good choice for travelers who may not want to rent a car. Click here for more details on the Winter Park Express.

Our tip for first timers in Colorado: After staying a day in Denver to get used to the altitude, Winter Park should the first resort on your itinerary. It’s easily accessible and offers great terrain to progress in the seven different territories.

How to get there by car: Located at U.S. Highway 40, the resort is about a 90-minute drive from Denver, Colorado. From Denver International Airport follow Peña Blvd and I-70 W to Clear Creek County and proceed on Interstate I-70 until exit 232. Continue west on US-40 and follow the signs until you get to the base in Winter Park.
