Scenic Chairlift Rides

Summer Scenic

Now there is a way for Winter Park visitors to experience the majestic, summer beauty of the Colorado Rockies without bikes, hiking boots or tour guide.

Enjoy a scenic chairlift ride on the Zephyr Express, which will take you from The Village at Winter Park up to an elevation of 10,700 feet. This ride offers spectacular views of the Continental Divide and the Fraser Valley. After your ride up, enjoy a hike down the winding Ute Trail that takes you back to the base of Winter Park Resort or ride the Zephyr Express back down again.

At the top, The Lodge at Sunspot offers fantastic mountaintop dining including lunch and snacks on Monday through Saturday and Sunday brunch starting late June/early July. The Lodge at Sunspot is also an ideal location for weddings.

Lift: Foot passengers are allowed ONLY on the Zephyr Express chairlift. If you have a valid Trestle Bike Park day ticket, Adventure Day Pass or Adventure/Trestle Bike Park Season Pass you can ride the Zephyr Chairlift as a foot passenger. If you are not a season pass holder and have not purchased a day ticket, you can purchase a separate foot passenger ticket for $15 at any ticket counter.

Dining: The Lodge at Sunspot Dining Room lunch hours are 11:00am-2:30pm
