Winter Park Resort is great for snowboarders and skiers alike. Fantastic trees, the most snow of all destination resorts in Colorado, a cool new Village and the most convenient location of all major ski resorts in Colorado.
Trees, trees, trees - besides powder isn't that the reason to snowboard? Well Winter Park Resort has some pretty amazing trees. The new Panoramic Express, the highest six pack ski lift in North America, takes you to the top of Parsenn Bowl to experience the finest gladed and ungladed (natural) trees in Colorado. Head to the top of Mary Jane and you can experience the winter solace of 'topher's trees. Truly perfect tree skiing can be had at the Resort.
Powder, powder and more powder - if it isn't trees it's has to be the snow, and lots of it , that makes snowboarding so fun. Well here in the Grandest of all Grand Counties Winter Park Resort averages over 350 inches of the fluffy white stuff every year. Last year the total was almost 30 inches over the average topping out at 378 inches of snow. You can not find better, more consistent snowfall in Colorado.
Winterpark just opened a cool new base village last ski season that now has three new restaurants and a couple of new stores. Lime is a great place to get a margarita and a burrito after a hard day on the slopes. At the Cheeky Monk you can get the finest Belgium beers and some of the best fries and mussels around. At Goody's make it crepes and some ice cream for the kids.
And lastly what makes Winter Park Resort best for snowboarders is how close and convenient the resort is to Denver International Airport. From the airport you can be on the slopes in 2.5 hours. It is a 67 mile trip from Denver to Winterpark. and you do not have to deal with Eisenhower Tunnel traffic.
